Sticky Lawyers

Sticky Lawyers

As an attorney, how do you build trust so your clients stick to you? Do your unique areas of focus, contributions to the community, what you do outside the law, or your background make you stand out? How do you channel your strengths and talents in ways that deliver powerful results and leave lasting impressions?

Host John Reed talks with real lawyers who share stories about how they got sticky and what they've done to set themselves apart from the competition.
