Louise’s final professional position was as Law Office Administrator for The Sienko Law Office, Hancock.

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

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:

Everywhere You Go, Google is Watching — and Mapping Your Location — Robert Ambrogi’s LawSites

Robert Ambrogi:

I was in Chicago this week for the Clio Cloud Conference, where I sat in horrified disbelief as keynote speaker Cindy Cohn, legal director of the Electronic Frontier Foundation, described the extent of government snooping on our digital lives. As we all know, of course, it is not just the government that is tracking us. Any number of companies are gathering data about our every click and every purchase.

In case you need a reminder of this, check out your location history on Google maps. It constantly tracks your location through your mobile phone or tablet. Above you see mine for the past week, showing my travels from Massachusetts to Chicago. Where did I go while in Chicago? I just need to zoom in to see everywhere I went during my time there. I can zoom in as close as need be for details or back out for the big picture. If I click on any of the red dots, I can see the precise time and date I was at that location.

Being busy isn’t the same as being successful or profitable.

11 Awkward Things About Email | Wait But Why

Email is one of those things that’s just a part of your life, period. Most of us know someone who has closed their Facebook account or refused to join in the first place in a little foot-stomping stand by their ego, and you might even know someone who is thrilled with themselves for not owning a smartphone.

But within the adult internet-using world, no one is allowed to not have email.

Not having email today would be the equivalent of not having a phone number–you’d have to be reallydoing your own thing to go there.

And so here we all are, typing things into compose windows, battling down our inboxes, and it’s going pretty well–but like any world of social interaction, email has its difficulties.

Let’s discuss 11 particularly awkward things about our email lives–click here
