Scheduling is one of my greatest frustrations, and I know loads of attorneys who feel precisely the same. If you manage a practice, you know all too well how much of your time is spent handling administrative work rather than billing time.
Consider this scenario (but don’t let it happen to you):
“Dear Potential Client,
Thank you for reaching out to me about my services. I understand you are seeking representation in a family law matter. As a first step, let’s schedule an initial consultation. I can speak to you by phone on Thursday at 3:00 p.m. or Friday at 10:00 a.m.”
