Making a Record for Show and Tell

The passage of time has the universal affect on memory – details fade and people remember things differently.  Legal battles often arise and center on parties fighting over what actually occurred way back when.  Archiving events of the past play a pivotal role in avoiding, or prevailing in, legal proceedings.  Simple steps such as drafting and sending letters or emails to follow up and summarize phone conversations at the time they occur, or preserving important documents can help you avoid a legal dispute. 

And, if the dispute cannot be avoided, properly captured history will help a judge or a jury understand what occurred way back when.  Properly captured history helps takes the guess work out of faded memories.  It also helps a judge or a jury to re-live the event.  If you become a party to a lawsuit, you stand a better chance of winning if you can show and tell a judge or jury what occurred.
