I was hoping to get more posts out to you this week while I was here at LMA15, but the conference was so jam packed that I barely had time to check emails, let alone anything more! 

But today, I’m bringing you a rainmaking recommendation from expert Jaimie Field. Keep an eye out next week for follow up from the conference!

Being a good lawyer is not enough. 

Being a great lawyer is not enough. 

Be an amazing lawyer! 

According to Google the definition of “Amazing” is “causing great surprise or wonder; astonishing.

So, when was the last time you created great surprise or wonder when it comes to your clients? 

Your referral sources?  Your prospective clients?

Think about the many ways you can amaze the people you know (and there are hundreds of

thousands of ways including the most simple – just touch base to see how they are and really listen).  

And don’t expect anything in return.  

Being amazing means going out of your way to give more than you get back.  The most interesting thing

 

about giving is that, by the law of reciprocity, you will wind up getting more in return.
