" Your Body Speaks so Loudly, I Can't Hear What you Say !"

This quote speaks volumes about the process some Vancouver Personal Injury Lawyers go through when they meet an injured person for the first time.

Because, really, this meeting is very much like a first date.

Both the lawyer and the injured person are "checking each other out".

And given that I'm a Vancouver Personal Injury Lawyer - I thought you might benefit from understanding what goes on from "the lawyer's" perspective.

Here goes.

During a first meeting with a potential client I do TWO THINGS.


I LOOK at the potential client's "body language".

Do they shake my hand? Do they look me in the eye when I greet them? Do they appear nervous or calm? Do they tap, jingle, pivot and shift or do they focus on me when I'm talking to them? Do they appear interested in hearing what I have to say or does it seem that their mind is somewhere else.

I LISTEN to what the potential client "has to say".

Do they attempt to describe their accident and injuries in a way that makes sense? Do they focus on discussing their problems and how they're going to try and  overcome them or do they talk about all the money their case is worth? Do they listen to what I have to say or are they more intent on simply talking?

The bottom line here is simple.

I find that if you  LOOK and LISTEN carefully during a first meeting you can get a real good sense of how the relationship between Personal Injury Lawyer and Client is going to work out.

Want to get together so we can both LOOK and LISTEN ?
