House Calls Anyone?

Posted: May 13th, 2009 | Author: | Filed under: Reflections on Law Practice | No Comments »

In the process of getting feedback from clients on their wants and needs, I found there was one idea that seemed to have tremendous appeal; house-calls. Remember the days when you called your doctor and they popped right over? Well this would be similar; I would visit clients at their business premises and for a fixed fee, I would perform a diagnostic check on the overall legal health of their business. Everyone I’ve polled so far loves the idea. It allows clients the opportunity to ask me all the questions they never get around to asking; it allows me to learn more about clients and their businesses and to interact more with clients on semi-formal basis (which is the part of lawyering that I love most), and given the fixed fee, removes the time element from the equation.
