Ethics rules are more than mere strictures attorneys must observe. They also provide principles for successful and positive relationship with clients. Even if the client’s goal isn’t fully satisfied – prevailing in litigation, closing a transaction, or something else – the relationship can still be positive.
What the rules require and what clients want are often the same:
Open and regular communication the status of work
A clear setting of expectations about billing
Honesty about the challenges of particular matter
A clear division of decision-making authority
Counseling about matters they may not fully understand is essential to a successful relationship.
