Leo Bottary’s excellent blog is back and better than ever. Leo’s a solid counselor and his insights
into the black, white and gray of client relationships is not only accurate, it’s also thought provoking. His recent one about "convincing" clients is spot on. I sometimes find myself deliberating as to how strongly I should push back on a client strategy. Obviously, each case is unique, but Bottary’s advice is evergreen. If you’re adamant about your POV and have the courage of your convictions, it’s in your and your client’s best interests that you "convince" him/her of its merit. Courage, though, is a prerequisite to convincing and what separates the wheat from the chaff.
