Clients are people after all and having suffered a trauma or accident it can lead them to be in a distressed, confused or even an angry position. One of the main areas we learn at Law school is about how Law is about LIFE. Life is not like a text book.Life has variations, sadness,distress,anger and these are the emotions a client will be going through when they are looking for help form a solicitor.
