Prevent Legal Problems Before a Crisis

A lot of lawyers describe themselves as problem solvers. And they are. People come to them with a problem and the lawyer helps them get out of it – or at least find some sort of a resolution.

But I don’t see myself as a problem solver as much as a problem preventer. I can help people a lot better if they come to me before they are facing a crisis, because when there’s a crisis, it's too late to mitigate. If they come to me before an issue arises, there's still time to avoid it or mitigate it.

Having a legal checkup for your business helps to prevent legal issues. It’s like being vigilant about doing exercise and taking vitamins because you want to prevent health issues.

An apple a day keeps the doctor away, and a prevention-focused legal strategy keeps the litigator away!
