There Ought To Be A Law

Legal Joy, PLLC
File this under “the ought to be a law,” …
There ought to be a law that says
1. An attorney must act in the best interests of his client
2. An attorney must do his best to advocate for his client
3. An attorney must not strong arm or threaten his client to sign documents and make decisions that are in the best interests of the attorney and not the client
4. An attorney will return a clients phone calls and review evidence given to him by client that the client says is important.
5. An attorney and his staff must behave in a professional manner towards the client and refrain from calling him names, either internally or publicly.

There ought to be a law.

Oh wait, there is!
