Product Description

Lawyers as Counselors: A Client-Centered Approach represents a popular title. Part One examines problems clients usually bring and covers the necessity of a client–centered approach. Part Two presents the questioning and listening skills that attorneys need to gather information while encouraging active client participation. Part Three explains how to develop a story from the client’s perspective, then to probe it for evidence in light of individual factual propositions; it also focuses on transactional matters, identifying the type of data lawyers need to elicit in almost all business dealings.
