When someone hires an attorney, he or she often has a lot at stake. He or she could be going through divorce, negotiating an important business deal or facing serious criminal charges. The outcome of the legal matter could profoundly affect the client’s life -- for good or bad.
As with any business, law firms in California generally want as many clients as they can get. A steady client load is the lifeblood of a firm, whether you are talking about a solo practice or a powerful international firm with hundreds of attorneys.
