A common complaint about lawyers is that they never return client calls or that the client very rarely gets to speak with his or her lawyer. I can relate to that complaint and it’s why I practice law the way I do.
When I was a freshman in college, I used to jog quite a lot. I still do but not as much. At the time I lived in the country where there were no sidewalks and you had to jog along rural, lightly traveled roads. One summer day, I was jogging on the left side of the road facing oncoming traffic. A teenage girl driving a pickup truck approached me from behind and decided to see how close she could get to me to scare me as a “practical joke”. Crossing the center line, she misjudged the space between us and struck me with her extended side-view mirrors. The impact threw me 10 feet into the air and I ended up in the ditch. The driver fled the scene and did not call for help.
I was lucky. I had a few cracked ribs and ended up with my arm in a sling. The driver was eventually caught after one of her passengers turned her in. Being injured gave me an insight to what my clients go through every day. The aftermath of my injury, however, is what truly impacted the way I practice law today. My Mom knew a local attorney who agreed to handle my case. I never met him until he called to say my settlement check was waiting for me. He never discussed the case with me, never spoke to me about what we should demand in the way of compensation to settle my case, and never asked me if I agreed with what the insurance company offered. Not once. It was simply “here is your portion of the settlement.”
I have been practicing law now for more than 20 years and I have always made it my commitment to be there for my clients. If a client needs to talk to me or to meet with me, they are going to get that opportunity. I am going to answer their questions and explain the law and their rights. Better-informed clients make better decisions, and I believe every client has the right to be a fully informed participant in their case. That is why I practice law the way I do.
