Behind the Scenes Part V: What really happens at the initial client meeting

Please don’t take case rejection personally. Usually, when you come to our office for a consultation, I will have a pretty good idea if you have a case we would take. But sometimes we need to turn down cases - - one of those “you can’t save every puppy in the pound” things. Don’t take it personally. If we reject your potential case, it’s an act of honesty that saves everyone involved from a potentially rocky situation and gives you an opportunity to potentially find a better match.

Subscribe to patience. If you were injured in a car accident, you will likely not miraculously heal. The most important thing you can do for yourself is be patient with your medical treatment. Not only is it ultimately important to your health, but you getting better (or trying to get better) is also important to your case. Then, once you are better, or reach maximum medical improvement (nothing more can be done to treat your ailments), you enter into a whole other round of patience. In the initial meeting, this principle is further explained. Ultimately, and in order for us to do our job and provide you quality legal care, it will be necessary for you to trust that we are doing everything we can to get you justice - - and as fast as we can. As such, you must understand that these things take time. If you cannot wait and exhibit impatience, you will be hurting your case.
