How Solos Can Improve Customer Service By Educating Clients
As solos, we are often consumed with the day-to-day obligations of running our own law practices. It can sometimes be difficult for us to stop and take a moment to put ourselves in our client’s shoes. We tend to forget that, while we might be familiar with the ins and outs of the legal process, our clients don’t have the same level of understanding.

An attorney in our Midtown NYC shared office space was speaking to me about referrals between Law Firm Suites clients, and he was quick to let me know that he had a bad experience.
