Why Aggressive Representation Also Needs Tenacity
If you listen to the radio, watch TV or drive on the highway, you have probably heard or seen ads or billboards promoting “aggressive” attorneys who will win your case. If you’re looking for a lawyer, you may have thought, “Yes! That’s what I need. A lawyer who is aggressive.”
It’s true, aggressive defense is important for winning; however, there is an attribute your attorney also needs to have in addition to aggression—TENACITY.
Aggression vs. Tenacity
What is the difference between aggression and tenacity?
By definition, aggressive means ready or likely to attack or confront. In the courtroom, you need representation that is not afraid to strike. It’s imperative for a successful outcome, yet legal attacking is not enough on its own.
Tenacity is defined as tending to keep a firm hold of something; not readily relinquishing a position, principle, or course of action; determined. Think of it as a dog that locks it jaw and will not let go. That is a clear image of tenacity.
Many legal cases take a long time to resolve, and you need an attorney who will not let go of the enduring intensity necessary to successfully represent you. A tenacious attorney will lock on to your defense and refuse to let go.
The Carlson, Meissner, Hart & Hayslett attorneys have a reputation for tenaciously fighting for the rights of those who need representation in personal injury, criminal defense, DUI/DWI, workers’ compensation, social security disability, or immigration cases. When our clients come to meet with us in one of our five Tampa Bay area locations (including Clearwater, Bradenton, Spring Hill, Tampa, and New Port Richey) they see for themselves how much we care about them and how important it is to us that we fight for their rights and their future.
Tenacious Because We Care About People
Many of our clients come into our office for the first time feeling scared or alone. They are facing something that seems incredibly difficult, embarrassing, or defeating.

We know if someone has been injured or accused of a crime, they deserve an experienced advocate who will take their problem personally, with both tenacity and compassion.
We are aggressive and tenacious in our representation because we see our clients and genuinely care about them as people. That’s the whole reason why we’re so tenacious. Their future depends on us refusing to let go.
