Some good advice ...

"Discourage litigation.  Persuade your neighbor to compromise whenever you can.  Point out to them how the nominal winner is often the real loser - in fees, expenses and waste of time.  As a peacemaker the lawyer has a superior opportunity of being a good man."

Abraham Lincoln
