I believe effective representation requires 3 things, namely, a competent representative, who can devote an appropriate amount of time to a matter, and employment of appropriate financial resources in that matter (i.e. costs of litigation, expert reports etc.). Currently, I believe our system requires too much of the latter two, so believe that the LSO should start there. There are also a number of Rules of Civil Procedure that make our system much less efficient than necessary (i.e. Discovery Rules, which encourage objections and motions practice, Rule 48.04, which delays the time until a pre-trial conference and/or trial, delaying the resolution of many matters).
