Lawyers Are Like Golf Clubs….Strange Analogy? Not so let me explain.
First let me weigh in with the standard caveat. I am not a lawyer, but I have worked with hundreds of them of all shapes, sizes, and specialties: Immigration, Business, Transactional, Prosecutors, Defense, Patent, Tax, PI, and even Environmental. Let me first tell you that there are good ones and bad ones as there are in many professions. They are necessary and can be (as we used to say in the Army) a “Force Multiplier . You simply have to know what their role is and how to use them to enhance or protect your business objective. Another quick tip is to not go the route of a one size fits all or “Swiss Army Knife Attorney” .
Just as in physicians there are specialties and skill comes from repeat practice of skills you want to choose the right “club” for the job. Hence the Golf Club Reference
So here are some local folks I recommend for various things. Now when you get to bigger practices you can have multiple disciplines but in general pick a lawyer who specializes…the skills are sharper…..you would not putt a ball with a sand wedge would you?
