The law firm is one of those places that offers a lot of services, but it is also where we are constantly reminded of how much work and responsibility we have to do. Being the go-to person with great lawyers can be a dream come true for anyone in any profession.
The lawyers we keep doing that are mostly the real estate office types. They live in the hills of the San Bernardino County area where we live, and they seem to be doing great business. They are quite well-mannered and have a good understanding of the law. They know what they’re doing and are a lot better than we are.
This is the last straw, though. I don’t know if the lawyers I do know actually care. They don’t seem to care about anything except their own bottom line. Their lives seem to consist of work and bills, and they do not seem to have any aspirations for anything else. The few times I’ve met a lawyer who actually seems to care, they act like they have nothing better to do.
I can only imagine what it must be like to be a lawyer who has a family and is constantly on call for clients. I know for a fact my parents dont care about me because my job keeps me from having a life outside of work.
Of course working a job that does not fulfill your life is a tragedy. We live in a society where we’re supposed to have a family, but unfortunately that is far from guaranteed.
A couple of other people in my life who have been on the radar of the corporate world have made it clear that it’s not a good idea to do business with them. Most companies don’t have an annual subscription that says, “Thanks for joining us…” or “Thanks for looking into my business. We look forward to seeing you in 2015.” However, in my country, there are also other types of businesses that should be doing business with you.
So if you’re in the US and you sell your services to some sort of business that you don’t personally know, you should definitely contact the company and make a point about the fact that you can’t vouch for them. Just like a customer, if you don’t like the way that they deal with their customers, you shouldn’t be dealing with them.
I think the biggest offender of this rule is the so called “real estate agents.” Although they’re legally obligated to verify all business transactions with their client, the actual service they provide is often a little sketchy. I recently had a real estate agent who I found seemed to be totally off the reservation when I told him to give me a loan because I had a problem with my credit report. He told me that I had to come in to his office to see it.
Yes, that’s right. He just showed me a totally wrong copy of my credit report. He told me that I needed to come in and he’d take care of it. And then when I did come in he refused to do anything about it. To make matters worse, I had to deal with a bunch of other people who were calling the office to get a different type of report. I had to explain all the other people to him because he refused to do anything about it.
