Dealing With Difficult Clients (And Their Family)

Published by Oakland County Bar Association


Criminal clients and difficult clients are not mutually exclusive. Add that client's stressed out family into the mix can prove to be a challenge. This seminar provides practical pointers on how to establish productive relationships with both the client and his/her family to work toward an effective outcome in the case.
