Counsellor or Cheerleader?

Some prospective clients in both the legal and consulting worlds are really confused as to the purpose of a lawyer.   They ignore the lawyer's purpose, which is to give advice.   This is true, whether the lawyer is representing a client before a court or administrative panel, giving advice one-on-one, or negotiating or mediating a dispute.
There are people who become disappointed when they actually get advice, and do not appreciate the content of that advice.  This advice is usually some derivative of, "You're wrong" or "You should not have done that."   These people should learn the distinction between hiring a lawyer to counsel them, to give them real advice, and hiring what in essence is a cheerleader to pat them on the back and reaffirm just what a good thing they've done.
Eric Dixon is a practicing lawyer in New York and New Jersey and handles investigative matters, litigation, negotiations and strategic analysis.  He is available for questions or comments at 917-696-2442.
