Because your [letter] tells me [there is a risk that the court will dismiss my case because I waited too long to start my claim and that it will cost me $40,000 in legal fees to go to trial], I plan to [take your suggestion that we negotiate first, and then decide to re-evaluate whether to file a court case].

Because your [letter] tells me [that I am jointly and severally liable with my husband and I don’t know what that means, I can’t figure out what to do].

Because your [legal memo] tells me [the court will likely be persuaded that the client waited too long to get an expert’s report so that the client’s claim is barred by the statute of limitations], I plan to [recommend settling the matter for $50,000].

Because your [motion submission] tells me [which specific facts meet the criteria for an injunction], I plan to [grant your motion and stop the dam’s construction until a full trial on the merits].
