Dawn-All Things Legal Investigations

It is true we can come across some pretty insensative attorneys. Those are not the attorneys I tend to recommend my clients to but I agree they do not always mean to come across the way they do. They are humans as well. I find that in our profession we can be a huge asset in closing the gap between the client and attorneys.

I also set up a squidoo page recommending great attorneys that I come in contact with all the time. check it out www.squidoo.com/BestOregonLawyers.

Thanks again for another great post!

Insensitive attorneys?? can't believe it.. ;) I'm a private investigator on Long Island. I deal with quite a few. For some reason, the more insensitive the attorney is, the more successful they are. Thanks for the post!

Interesting comments. When you go to a doctor are you more concerned with his skill or his sensitivity? Sure we would like both but what is most important?

An attorney is constantly in an adversarial arena with the court, prosecutors or opposing counsel. It is easy to become so focused on addressing the problem they were hired for that they are not responsive personally.
That by no means justifies being a jerk. Jerks exist in all professions regretfully.
I appreciate this post and line of discussion. I have found myself getting so engrossed in protecting my clients that I have been less responsive to their feelings. I realize that people come to me to protect them but they also need hope and encouragement along the way. We make a concentrated effort in my office to support and encourage our clients as well as protect them
These comments help reinforce the need for us to continue serving the entire client, not just the legal one.

Very thoughtful blog post - attorneys will love you MrSting! I have not met any 'bad' ones in my country even though on TV they show some to be double-headed snakes.

I used to practice law and I'm glad to see posts like this one. Attorneys really aren't as horrible as some people think they are, and I think it's entirely possible to be an effective lawyer and do it honestly, ethically and without being a jerk.

Jerks do exist in all professions, but for some reason, attorneys often tend to be presumed jerky until proven otherwise.

Most attorneys aren't jerks--most of them are decent, honest people who work very hard to protect their clients' interests. Sometimes their clients' interests conflict with other people's, which can lead to frustration and anger on the other people's part. How inevitable is it that someone will take their frustration and anger out on the attorney in that situation? (By calling them a jerk, among other things . . .)

Popular belief and TV/movie portrayals notwithstanding, attorneys are generally interested in helping others and have a strong sense of ethics.

We are not animals! We are human beings! :)

So people don't love attorneys and dentists. Both have to concentrate on curing rather than caressing. Both are indispensible, both must discharge thier duties without reference to emotions.

There are no "insensitive attorneys". They are either competent or incompetent. Choose them so.

Very interesting and well spoken closing argument.
