Why Lawyers Are Great Clients
Q: When attorneys die, why do they bury them 600 feet underground?
A: Because deep down, they’re really nice people.
Unfair! Lawyers get a bad rap. Jokes abound, but when you’re in a bad spot, you might really need a lawyer — and that person will be your best friend at your worst moment.
Accounting professionals might see law firm clients as intimidating: They argue in front of judges. They understand how the law works. They are buttoned up professionals.
And you are a professional as well:
- You understand how accounting works. They don’t.
- You understand how payroll works — they don’t.
- You can efficiently administer trust accounting. They, for sure, don’t.
Lawyers are great clients because of their high standards:
- They make good money.
- They pay their bills on time.
- They pay attention to details — just like you.
- If you do a good job, they will refer you to their colleagues.
