Attorney Aaron Bortel is a client of ours. He’s a DUI attorney in California – so his firm operates in one of the most ruthlessly competitive legal markets in the United States.

I apologize if this post is blunt. But, today, I want to talk about a fundamental truth about the “attorney-potential” relationship (as opposed to the attorney-client relationship.)

It’s true, to a point. Nobody wants to broadcast their problems on Avvo or Google Plus. And so if you …Read More
When it comes to your perceived status as an attorney, your authority is not objective – it’s subjective. In other words, it’s in the eye of your beholder.
