Be More Than a Legal Eagle: Provide Some Peace of Mind

Anne-Marie Mitchell

In my first year as a lawyer, a partner with whom I frequently worked gave me advice that stuck: “Part of your job as a lawyer is to keep the client calm and reassured. Clients are usually under a lot of stress and have many fires to put out, including the (expensive) legal problems that they bring you. Besides excellent legal work, our job is to take on some of that stress and worry and assure clients that everything is under control and that their legal problems are in good hands.”
