  • For all lawyers who represent "the people," the existing client is the lifeblood  of their practice. Your relationship with an existing client is by far your best  advertisement for future business. Be sure to spend some time getting to know  your clients. Inquire about their family, goals and future plans beyond the  resolution of their legal matter with you. Remind them that you are their lawyer  for life and they should call you with any legal issues or questions in the  future. You want to brand yourself and your business as their one-stop shop for  legal issues. Again, even if the question deals with another area of law, you  want to be thought of in your clients' minds as their legal resource and  consultant. They should never hire another lawyer for any reason without first  consulting you about it. This practice allows you to refer the client to lawyers  whom you not only trust and are confident will do a good job, but it provides an  avenue for reciprocation of referrals., Writer, The Art of Generating Legal Business For the Young Lawyer, The Legal Intelligencer, Attorneys, Legal Industry, 2013
