As a lawyer I realize that the profession is not held in high regard. A
person's opinion tends to shift once they need the services of a lawyer
for themselves. I feel like it is my job to lessen the stigma regarding
attorneys once a person comes in contact them for the first time. I realize
that meeting with a criminal defense lawyer is not what they had mind.
I am comforting while stilll discussing honestly any all possible outcomes
of their particular case. In my opinion, a person comes away with a much
better feelling about a lawyer after a meeting.with me.
My professionalism, knowledge, and benevolence is rewarded by the amount
of times that my previous clients recommend my services to the people
that they know. I would say that over a third of my business is from previous
clients refering these people in their time of need to me.
