“People don’t need lawyers when they’re doing fine and things are good; lawyers are usually for the bad times, for the unsolvable problems, for failing relationships, when things are at their worst. For those times a lawyer should know more than just the law; a lawyer must understand human behavior, be a problem solver, a peace maker, yet a realist, willing and able to advocate zealously for the client. A lawyer must take care not to promise a perfect outcome, but neither to suggest gloom or dire results. Supportive, encouraging, positive, a good lawyer is a skilled pilot in turbulence, steering always with safe landing as the goal.” – Aladean M. DeRose
