Mecklenburg County Bar
Elder Law, General
Your legal assistant gets a phone call, which goes something like:
“Hello, my name is Lady Gaga. My mother needs a Will. She’s been a bit sick and has trouble hearing. My sister and I want to bring my mother in to see the lawyer. How much will the lawyer charge? When can we come in to see the lawyer?”
Your assistant tells the caller they can come in next Monday at 3 pm. She takes down the client’s name and phone number, thanks her, and hangs up.
So… who is the client? How did the assistant do?
How do you avoid or minimize a mess – malpractice, grievance, unhappy client and lawyer?
Even experienced elder law attorneys grapple with this question in their practice.
