Page 4NJSBA REPORT – Changeby Arnold N. FishmanThe Barrister has a new printer and format, whichcaused the due-date for this month’s article to bemoved up. Having missed the last NJSBA Boardmeeting (see “Mid-Year Meeting” in the Decemberissue of the Barrister), I am out of the loop andcannot think of a law-related topic to write about.In this space, I try to spare those of you who actually read this columnfrom my opinions on issues outside of matters of interest to lawyersin Camden County. Occasionally, I should be permitted the liberty ofranting and raving. So here I go!Can there be any doubt that the American people (me included)voted overwhelmingly for change in the last presidential election? Thatmandate, coupled with control of both houses of Congress, should havebeen enough to accomplish something meaningful. But no! What do weget? We get business as usual. The solidarity of the “loyal opposition”coupled with the disarray of the majority party underscores that, in ourleaders’ frenzy to be reelected and to weaken each other, the good ofthe governed gets lost. Statesmanship is missing because the electorateis uninformed, disinterested, and is encouraged to pander to its ownparochial interests.Top on my list of wanted changes was the ending of thewasting of our precious time, talent, and treasure (i.e. youth, energy, andmoney) on blowing up our enemies in an effort to create a better world.To quote a line from the Broadway Show Hair, “Fighting for peace islike # %-ing for chastity.” Or as our Quaker friends so delicately putit, “There is no way to peace; peace is the way.” To the extent that ourPresident agonizes over beefing up our deployed forces, to that sameextent he ignores his domestic agenda. And isn’t it a sure bet that ourCommander-In-Chief will capitulate to the military, and authorize anCCBALawyer’sLeagueTime ToThinkBarristerBall!increase in the troop level in Afghanistan? (He may have done so bythe time you read this, and if not, boy is my face red!) The TV showBill Moyers’ Journal recently devoted an episode to Lyndon Johnson’sdevastating involvement in Vietnam. Moyers drew parallels betweenthat quagmire and our present situation. The similarities are striking.And let’s remember that people have been trying to subdue the Afghanssince Phillip of Macedonia – without success, I hasten to add. Einsteinlikened insanity to doing the same thing over and over but expecting adifferent result.Instead, let’s turn our attention to problems much closer athand. I was shocked and saddened to learn that according to its DistrictAttorney-elect, just across the river in Philadelphia where I grew up andmaintain a presence, the leading cause of death for black males under35 is homicide. We should be directing those assets toward securing thestreets of Philadelphia and Camden rather than the streets of Baghdadand Kabul. We should be investing in our broken infrastructure - creatingjobs that cannot be outsourced - rather than destroying remote locationsthat we are legally and morally obligated to repair. We should beconcerned with our environment and ameliorating the effects of globalwarming rather than how to control the enraged friends and relatives ofpeople we kill and torture in remote countries that we occupy. Ponderhow Americans would detest a country that made us so impotent thatits army could abuse our citizens on our own soil. Wouldn’t we call fora complete withdrawal as a precondition to any meaningful dialogue?Are they so different from us?If we did all that, we would once again be the nation that thecitizens of every country would want their country to emulate. Wewould serve as the exemplar of a state both powerful and just, a worldpower that puts the welfare of the people first. To the extent that thevarious governments are responsive to the needs of their people, thosegovernments would have to ensure them a safe, sustainable and humaneexistence. That’s how to build a better world.Thanks for listening. Next month, it’s back to the law.

Page 6How to Lose a Client in 10 Days, Really?MarketingMattersBy Kimberly Alford RiceI recently attended the AmericanBar Association Law Practice ManagementSection’s Law Firm Marketing StrategiesConference at which numerous lawyers,marketing partners and other legal professionalsfrom across the country gathered to learn howto integrate key marketing principals intotheir practices as the profession increasinglyfocuses on the essential aspect of marketingin the business of law, for both small and largelaw firms.Some of the best minds in the law firmmarketing arena presented an array of topicsto broaden the thinking of how marketingis perceived and utilized in U.S. law firmsand how practitioners can incorporate basicprincipals to strengthen their practices in thecurrent economic climate.Among one of the speakers wasJames King, in-house counsel of The BoeingCompany in Ridley Township, Pennsylvania.He introduced six ways lawyers can lose aclient and steps to avoid those landmines.First, advice sans counsel. Mr. Kingasserted that clients do not merely look to theirlawyers for advice but rather their insights andwisdom into a particular problem. It is morehelpful to counsel a client on the full scopeand implications of a problem and possiblesolutions than it is to simply tell someonewhat to do. There is a difference in perceivedvalue from the client’s perspective.Second, a quick way to lose a clientis to demonstrate a lapse in integrity. Clientslook to their lawyers to earn their trust throughaction, not just by their pedigree and resume.Once a client discovers she has not learnedthe complete and utter truth about a matter,regardless of how little or much is at stake, itis difficult to put the genie back in the bottle.Better to keep the lid on this one, real tight.Third, one of the most frequentclient complaints is that their lawyers fail tocommunicate with them. Because there are somany means of communications available tous, it is a useful practice to speak directly withyour clients regarding their preferred meansof communications whether by telephone,email, mail, fax or some combination thereof.Whatever a client’s preference, adapt yourcommunication style to respond to their needs.This will send a positive message that you arelistening to your clients and that you genuinelycare about nurturing the relationship.Fourth, untimeliness is a commonproblem between lawyers and their clients,and is another way to prompt a client to lookelsewhere for their legal services. Often in acorporate environment, in-house lawyers arerequired to make legal decisions by committee.R E A L E S T AT E T A X E STOO HIGH?Sonya M. MocarskiM.S.

Thisproblem can easily be remedied with directcommunication in connection with a client’sexpectations of how and in what time framethey need to receive ongoing projects.Fifth, “nickel and dimeing.” Weall can relate to this peeve. How manytimes have you phoned your IT consultantregarding a seemingly simple computer glitchand subsequently received an invoice for a15-minute consult. Most clients expect theirlawyers to invoice them for outstanding mattersand communications, but it reflects poorly onthe lawyer and his perception of the clientattorney relationship if he invoices a client foreach and every time they have any contact.In an effort to build a long-term relationshipwith clients, lawyers would be well served tocarefully monitor their billable time and resistthe urge to bill for every 6 minutes.In fact, a powerful way tocommunicate to clients the value you placeon your relationship is to include in yourmonthly invoice one or two instances whereyou communicated with the client on a matterbut did not charge her. Show the time spentand then beside it, cite no charge. Clientslove feeling that they are receiving a few(valuable) minutes “off the clock” withtheir lawyer.Sixth, tying into the communicationstheme above, clients appreciate receivingOctober 2009www.camdencountybar.org(Berlin Office)Tel: 856-753-1792 Fax: 856-753-7118
