Client Interviewing & Counseling : Skills for Lawyers


What distinguishes a great lawyer from a good one is their ability to extract the right information from the client, put across their ideas in a clear, concise and confident manner combined with ability to listen effectively. The journey of developing a strong attorney-client relationship is one that takes years of practice to master. While dealing with a client, you may come across multiple challenges like difficulty in establishing trust, not getting the right questions for extracting the relevant information the client is withholding. With such a scenario, it will be difficult for you to advise your client objectively.
