How to Avoid Bad Clients Before They Enter Your Practice – Legal Ease Blog

  • Allison C. Shields
  • 631-642-0221

My last post talked about eliminating bad clients from your practice. But the best way to deal with truly difficult clients is by not taking them on in the first place. That requires that you be able to identify potentially bad clients early – preferably before a retainer is signed.

Create a pre-qualifying process. Think about the bad clients you’ve represented in the past and make a list of the warning signs or red flags that arose during your first conversation or initial consultation. If you can recognize the warning signs in advance, you can stop bad clients before they enter your practice.

To get you started, here are a few bad client warning signs:

Getting Started | Hyperlinking in Federal Court

Guide to Hyperlinking

Attorney Guide to Hyperlinking in the Federal Courts – Word Users

Attorney Guide to Hyperlinking in the Federal Courts for WordPerfect Users

Please let us know if you have any comments on this guide.  We welcome input and suggestions to improve the ease of hyperlinking by attorneys.

Using LinkBuilder

LinkBuilder will search a Microsoft Word document for citations to CM/ECF filings and insert a hyperlink to the corresponding file in the CM/ECF system.  LinkBuilder can recognize and link to attachments in the record, as well as page-specific references, to create pinpoint access to specific information in the case.  Using LinkBuilder will greatly aid the court by creating easy access to documents relevant to the brief being filed.  The judge and the law clerk working on the document will not have to search CM/ECF for the proper document but will be able to call it up with the click of a mouse.  Judge and Chambers Staff may want to use LinkBuilder in orders to show attorneys how useful these links can be.

A log-in and password for either CM/ECF or PACER is required as well as internet access. LinkBuilder now is compatible with Bankruptcy CM/ECF.  LinkBuilder is tested and known to work with CM/ECF 5.1.1 and higher and in Word 2010 and Word 2013.  (It does not work on the Mac version of Word.)  For best results, LinkBuilder requires a component report to be installed in the court’s CM/ECF system. This report provides hyperlink information to the LinkBuilder program for ease in creating links and without PACER charges being incurred by the user.  Court’s can download the companion report LinkBuilder will run from a Docket Sheet if the companion report is not available.

Know Your Rights: Housing and Arrests or Criminal Convictions | The Bronx Defenders

A criminal history can affect your eligibility for both public housing and, if a landlord conducts a background check, private housing. An arrest – even before anyone is found guilty – can often trigger eviction of you or your entire household from public or private housing.

Federally Subsidized Housing(NYCHA & Section 8)

Federally subsidized housing includes all public housing developments (such as NYCHA in New York City and RHA in Rochester) and Section 8. Rules in subsidized housing can be very strict, and even minor arrests or criminal convictions can affect your right to stay in public housing. This section includes information about “Admissions” – or the rules guiding when your criminal conviction might prevent you from living in public housing, even if your family lives there, and about “Termination of Tenancy” – or eviction based on criminal justice involvement. Most of the information here is specific to the New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) and to Section 8 administered by NYCHA. To find out about the laws specific to your city or county use LawHelp/NY (www.lawhelp.org/ny) to find a housing legal services provider in your area.

Admissions- Getting into housing with a criminal record

Public housing agencies and Section 8 providers can and do obtain criminal records of applicants and tenants. Much of the information in this section is based on How to Get Section 8 or Public Housing Even With a Criminal Record, a publication of the Legal Action Center.

Office of Disability Adjudication and Review

We are pleased to publish the newly reformatted Best Practices Handbook for claimants’ representatives. It is our hope that all claimants’ representatives will use this handbook as a practice aid when advocating and appearing before the Office of Disability Adjudication and Review.

The Office of Disability Adjudication and Review is one of the largest administrative adjudicatory systems in the world. The claimants who appear before us may feel overwhelmed by the legal and administrative requirements associated with pursuing a Social Security claim. Therefore, it is important for those most closely associated with this effort to work together in a collegial and professional manner to make this process as efficient as possible. It is to this end that we publish this handbook so that we can successfully fulfill our joint mission to provide the best possible service to the public.
