We are walking through the initial consult to close process with the dynamic duo of Peter Gilbert, Founding Attorney of HighPoint Law Offices, and Loren Frasco, Client Services Director.
Lauren shares how she uses a 15-20 minute initial client triage call to start to develop the client relationship while getting basic information and determining if the client will be a good fit for the firm. She also uses this call to set expectations for the in-person meeting that comes next in the process.
Then we dive into how the in-person initial consult meeting is structured and the critical role Lauren plays in keeping the process moving forward.
We also discuss the challenges that some attorneys and client services coordinators face when quoting fees because they don't view themselves as "salespeople."
Listen through for tips at the end to help you enroll your client services coordinator and other team members into having more client interaction.
