“A lawyer who represents him (or her)self has a fool for a client”
I think if you’ve been practicing law for any time at all you probably agree with me that truer words were probably never said about lawyers who undertake to do work for themselves.
Because as smart, as educated and as analytical as we are perhaps the most valuable attribute that we bring to bear for the clients we represent is our informed-objectivity.
Unfortunately too-few law schools and too-few CLE programs seek to equip us as law students and later as practicing lawyers, with the business management skills needed to manage the finances of our own law firms. Certainly not to attend to this critical law firm management task objectively.
So instead of feeling the same sense of self-confidence and control we enjoy when dealing with our clients’ legal matters, when it comes to the financial management of our own law firms, too-many otherwise smart & sophisticated lawyers end-up making important law practice management decisions based on incomplete information and fear.
