The article presents the author's views on how lawyers can take on more experienced lawyers in a legal battle. He talks about looking at online or social networking profiles of lawyers to get information about them. He suggests that one should not get intimidated in front of a senior counsel, and should not try to make concessions for fear of losing face. He also suggests to do a skeleton argument, and to learn from the experience.
