When you hire an attorney, you’re hiring someone to not only follow your advice, but also someone who will think, analyze and advise to help ensure that the best possible decisions are being made for you. In addition to following your wishes, your attorney will be exercising his own professional judgments.

Some business owners and managers are less than happy with the service received from attorneys. The complaints usually stem from a perception that the attorney is too expensive, too slow or creates unnecessary roadblocks for “simple” tasks.

Sometimes, dissatisfaction with a business’s attorney is justified. However, dissatisfaction often stems from a misunderstanding of how the attorney is expected to act as a legal professional.
