I get so peeved with people who jump into the middle of a topic without providing adequate background or context, especially when those people are communicating to a group of people who may or may not know anything about the subject.
I need to remember this as an attorney- jurors haven't been living, breathing, sleeping my case like I have. It's imporant to introduce them to everything I take for granted. The basic facts. The basic law. How all the pieces fit together. Things that make sense to me after months of sorting and thinking will not be obvious to the jury. Or the judge, for that matter.
