I was done. That was it… the last call I would receive from an upset client. The call came from Karl. He was someone who optimistically hired the law firm I was working for, then a few months later called me back but this time sounded very dejected.
He informed me that the lawyer who he was assigned to wouldn’t return any of his phone calls nor seemed to care about his case. Then, the lawyer who showed up to court was inexperienced and was the complete opposite of the image https://www.acheterviagrafr24.com/acheter-viagra-sans-ordonnance/ that the firm portrays with its advertising.
I must have heard this criticism hundreds of times. Disenchanted, I would always walk into my boss’ office to tell him that a client of ours was upset and that it would be best if he reached out. The sad truth was that I had helped to build this multi-million dollar firm based on values that were not supported by all.
After hearing Karl’s lackluster feedback, it reminded me of the scene in the movie “The Wizard of Oz”, where after trekking through the land of Oz and doing the wizard’s bidding, Dorothy and her new friends came to the awful realization that the Great and Powerful Oz was just an ordinary man, or worse he was a charlatan. “Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain!” That line resonated with me a lot during my time there.
So after 5 years, and speaking with over 15,000+ people in need of legal services, I left the highest paying job I’d ever had to go do something I believed in. I didn’t really have a plan, but I knew that I had had my “Jerry McGuire” moment. The moment where it wasn’t about the money, it was about truly helping people. That was 5 years ago.
What I had learned during my tenure at the law firm was that hiring a lawyer is not like purchasing a car or some other product or service. When you are in need of an attorney, your life is in an emotional hell. Your choices of whom to help you are limited by your knowledge. Unfortunately, almost every single piece of information about attorneys on the web or other media is biased in some way or another. The problem I had with the firm wasn’t just happening there– it was a disgusting problem happening everywhere. There had to be a better way to find a highly skilled lawyer other than opening a phone book or simply searching on the web.
The secret is that great lawyers just don’t have the time to advertise; because great lawyers are either meeting with their clients or they are in court. Most people don’t have any idea where the go-to lawyers are, and how to reach them. So it became my mission to find these great lawyers and let everyone know how to contact them.
What we do is help people who are in hot water. We inform folks where to find exceptional lawyers so that they will have a fighting chance with their legal dilemma.
We have a team of skilled and caring people to help me execute this belief and we all have adopted this vision of being a true advocate for YOU, the client.
