Getting the most from your attorney

By Nina Kaufman, Esq.

Okay, I get it.  We’re a big ticket item.  We come with a bad reputation.  We can be nasty and ugly (although I’m kinda cute) and speak in a strange jargon . . . where it seems we’re deliberately trying to play intellectual one-upmanship games with you to let you know who’s the smartest guy/gal in the room.  You’d rather undergo root canal without anesthesia than deal with one of us.

And yet.

And yet, we can be your greatest support system.  Your protector.  The cool head prevailing when you’re ready to lose your mind.  The one who talks you down off the ledge.  And maybe (if you’re lucky enough to work with me), we’ll tell you a joke or two and make you laugh, so that you realize the world won’t come to an end if that truly awful deal doesn’t close.

In his article in the New York Enterprise Report, Daniel Abrams identifies 10 ways you can get the most out of your attorney.  But before you reach that point, you also need to be sure you’ve chosen the right one for your business.  My program, How to Choose and Use Attorneys, can show you how to do just that.  Like dating, you want to be sure you have the right chemistry with your attorney so that you’re comfortable being vulnerable and exposing your not-so-perfect qualities/decisions.
