Welcome to another episode of the On Fire Empire Podcast – I’m your host, Kelly Bennett.
We’re in the middle of a series here in Season 3 called “Legally Speaking – Practical Law You Can Use”. And today – we’re getting really practical.
In last week’s episode, I shared a lot of beefy info on how to find and hire a great attorney. If you missed it – you’ll definitely want to go back and take a listen. It’s the kind of stuff you don’t typically know – especially if you’ve never needed an attorney before.
Today we’re taking it a step further. Today, we’re getting down to the nitty-gritty.
Today you get to be the fly on the wall. That’s right – you get to eavesdrop on a conversation between a couple of lawyers…
The topic today is how to have a great relationship with your attorney, once you hire her or him. It’s super common to not really know the rules of the road when you’re hiring an attorney for the first time.
So even if YOU don’t need a lawyer right now, I’ll bet you know someone who does – or someone who has an attorney and may be in the middle of a divorce or starting a business and working with a business attorney or something else. You’ll be their HERO when you share the insider details we’re dishing today!
So in today’s episode, my Producer Jose Bono sat down with me and Attorney Rachael Bennett for a discussion on what great clients DO…and what they DON’T DO. As I said, we’re getting down to the nitty gritty here.
A word about Attorney Rachael Bennett – this lawyer isn’t just any-old-lawyer…she’s pretty special to me. Yes, Rachael’s my daughter and I have the privilege of practicing law with her in our Southern California law firm – Bennett & Bennett.
As many of you know, I’m the Managing and Senior Attorney at Bennett & Bennett – where we practice Family Law and Estate Planning – that’s the wills and trusts stuff. Rachael is the Supervising Attorney over the Family Law department and she practices exclusively Family Law.
And this area of law is one of the most emotionally charged, personally challenging areas for clients. And it’s one of the areas where people typically have a rough time navigating the attorney-client relationship – especially when it’s their first rodeo.
When you cultivate a great working relationship with a lawyer, you’ll get much better results – and save time and money too.
So sit back, relax and enjoy the insider info as we talk about the Top 3 “Don’ts” and the Top 3 “Do’s” for having a Great Relationship with your attorney:
