They need my full attention.
Ever since I became a prosecutor, I was always amazed by how and why certain attorneys were able to sign clients. Certainly it wasn't for their courtroom presence or skills. They were mostly late to court appearances and routinely pled clients guilty, after probably having told them, "You are getting a heck of a deal." They also seemed to be "that" attorney who never remembered what their client looked like. Of course, their response to the client would be, "I'm so popular and have so many clients, it's hard to remember them all." My response: No, you believe in quantity over quality and cannot provide adequate representation to your client. And these attorneys generally have the clients who stand up at the call of the calendar to say, "I haven't spoken to my attorney since I paid him. I just speak to the secretary." I can tell you that judges hate this. If judges don't like your attorney, they won't like you.
Forsyth County has a lot of attorneys. A lot. So it's important that you ask the prospective attorney questions like, "Can I reach you over the weekend?" or "How often do I receive an update on my case?" If the attorney hesitates, walk away.
