What Makes an Excellent Orange County Personal Injury and Wrongful Death Lawyer? (Part 2)
The best Orange County personal injury and wrongful death lawyers have exceptionally good people skills. They know how to treat a client like a human being. They also know how to build rapport and trust with opposing counsel, claims adjusters, witnesses, judges and even the jury.
This is a critically important skill that is not taught in law school. If your California lawyer has the personality of a wet dish rag, then when it’s all said and done, your case will probably end up at the bottom of the drain. On the flip side, an Orange County lawyer with excellent people skills and one who is able to connect with others probably your best choice. Why? Because this lawyer will increase the chances of getting the results you’re entitled to.
Possessing outstanding people skills is an important quality great Orange County lawyers have. All else being equal, this single factor can be the difference between winning and losing your case.
One more thing. If you’re interesting in learning more about people skills, we recommend Bob Burg’s book, “Adversaries into Allies: Win People Over Without Manipulation or Coercion.” In fact, we believe people skills are so critically important that we will not agree to mentor young trial lawyers until they have read Bob’s book. People skills are just that important!
