You can be a good lawyer but if you don’t have the drive to truly fight for your clients you will never be a great lawyer.
When a client comes to you, they are usually at a low-point in their lives. They are frustrated by a system in which they cannot speak for themselves – a system filled with uncertainty. Clients want answers because the system gives them none. And they want somebody who will stand up for them. WE are all they have -their one hope. If you are a lawyer and you can’t empathize with that you should not be practicing law.
No lawyer can guarantee you a specific result. If they promise you a certain result you are talking to a con artist, not a lawyer. What a lawyer can guarantee is that they will do everything possible to get you a great result. They can promise they will put in the extra effort, that they will come up with creative solutions and, most importantly, that they will fight.
