The only reason I had enough nerve to honestly say that I would yell back was that I worked on a case a few years before with an attorney in NYC who said, "I need to let you know that as things get going, I sometimes yell." He went on to say something about it being a bad habit brought on by stress. I shrugged it off and said, "Then I guess you need to know that I sometimes yell back." The attorney chortled and we got along great. I remember nothing about the case except that conversation.
I gained a lot of confidence working for lawyers, so I understand their work.
The truth is that people do not like to hire lawyers or doctors. The main reason is that the billing is ambiguous and expensive. Soon I’ll tackle a work-around for the ambiguous billing issue, but this post is going to focus on the other reasons people do not like to hire lawyers.
