It’s the not so pleasant part of practicing law: dealing with difficult people and situations. Our goal in this article is to offer practical advice to attorneys on how best to navigate these difficult encounters, with examples of what has worked or not worked for others. To expand the scope of experiences and practical solutions beyond our own individual experiences, we created a survey to gather responses from a variety of practicing attorneys, asking them to provide responses to a handful of questions designed to target these objectives. Summaries of the responses are set forth in the article.
