David Boies -- "the Michael Jordan of trial attorneys," as he was introduced at the Lawyers' Club of San Francisco annual California Supreme Court lunch -- called for members of the legal profession to do more to help people get justice in a cost-effective way. "It costs too much to litigate today," said Boies, founder and chairman of Boies, Schiller & Flexner, upon accepting his Access to Justice award at the Wednesday lunch. Boies said attorneys should pare cases down to their essentials early on.
