When you think about Customer Service do you think about the check out clerk at the grocery store, the person at the counter at your local fast food restaurant, or the representative who assists you when you contact your cell phone provider? These are examples of people who provide customer service, but the establishments that employ them are not the only establishments that must consider the customer when providing service.
Customer service is essential to maintaining any business. Without it clients will choose to take their business elsewhere. No state bar has a model rule that instructs attorneys and their staff to become customer service representatives, but most if not all include rules regarding how and when to engage with clients.
This 60 minute webinar will discuss the ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct Rule 1.4 and California Rules of Professional Conduct Rules 3-500 and 3-510 regarding client communication.
The path to learning any area of the law takes dedication and time, but if you put your mind to it, you'll have no problem becoming one of the best. What are you waiting for?
