  • I like what you have said here. I have been a lawyer for a little less than 20 years. I believe an important part of ones ability to build a successful practice is his/her realization that he/she (as a lawyer) is not the center of the universe, that their skills are generally only tool to grease the wheel. Considerations other than the existence of the lawyer generally drive the resolution of the matter at hand, and a lawyer's skill are simply instruments that assist in getting clients to where he/she desire to go.

  • I agree too, it's very importance to listen as to comprehend and portrait what the clients desires but that is not enough to result in success if the information is used in a passive way. I think however is your listening if you really want to help you will find a way to do so. The listening part as to be able to be in one's shoes under the raincoat of a law knowledge ah there is where you got to be... thinking "what are you going to do about being there and act at the front of the resolution not yet another ear is not enough. Clients want results and if they come to see you its because they don't know how to get them. So apart from the listening the type of determination and commitment you can put in is what the client really expect I think.
