"THE BULLDOG ATTORNEY"

Here is a link to a post from New York Divorce Report:

7 Divorce Mistakes to Avoid: How to Not Have A Disastrous Divorce

Of course, a lot of these suggestions apply to any commercial litigation as well but I found the Number 1 suggestion most interesting when it states:

"Hiring the bullldog attorney- the super aggressive lawyer who promises to leave no stone unturned so that you will “win” the case and who promises to punish your spouse- is a recipe for disaster. The bulldog attorney will needlessly litigate everything.

The only one who will definitely benefit from this hire is the attorney. He will bill you aggressively and end up with the lion’s share of the marital assets."

I just note that I have seen this in matrimonial and non-matrimonial cases - the "bulldog client/litigant" who, notwithstanding any type of attorney hired and who may even proceed pro se, will "needlessly litigate everything".
