Why Is it So Hard to Get a Lawyer to Return a Client’s Phone Call?

Respect

We’ve all had periods where we let the phone messages and voicemails pile up.

It’s usually the calls from client that go to the bottom of the list.

We don’t call back because we think they’re annoying, stupid, crazy, and overly emotional. We’ve got better things to do (many of them are for their benefit).

However, we made the choice to be here. We’ve got to get off our high horse.

If we don’t like it, we should leave. The last thing we should do is take their money and ignore their call. I’m ashamed that I ever did that.
