Again, the desire to help folks out who needed it the most. People who are experiencing trauma in their lives and need someone who understands their plight and can assist when others will not.
Legal issues and the system itself can be extremely complicated. It is not unlike surgery where a patient wants to have confidence that his surgeon is excellent in his field, is experienced in the type of surgery, has the tools and the facility to perform the surgery with the best chance of a positive outcome, but doesn't necessarily want to know what size blade will be used, which tendons will be cut, and what the tasks of all the assistants will be during surgery. Having clients that understand the risks, who understand the need for expert help, and who are trusting of that help is important. As with the doctor - patient relationship, educating the client on what to expect and how to best take care of oneself pre and post surgery is very important. Educating the client on the basics of what needs to be done and what outcome to expect is paramount. However, attempting to pass on years of education and experience to a client can often times create more confusion than resolution.
Understanding the client's perspective is critical to targeting a resolution that will be in the client's best interest. I always encourage clients to give us their input and thoughts on a matter; particularly in the Divorce and Family area when emotions are running at their maximum. Knowing the client's desired outcome and understanding what the client feels about his or her situation is part of the compassion that is required when servicing clients in the areas of Criminal Defense and Divorce and Family Law.
