- A good working relationship between the client and the lawyer will result in a better outcome, a smoother process, a lower account and a satisfied client. To obtain a good working relationship, it is important that both the client and lawyer recognize their own and each other's responsibilities.
- There was a funny incident when I was telling a potential client about the options out of a deadlock in a joint venture. In particular, I was talking about such methods as the "Russian Roulette" and "Texas Shooting." He listened and nodded with a suspicious smile.
