My lawyer never recognises me; it is as if he is meeting a stranger each time. He has been my lawyer for 10 years and whereas I do not expect a red carpet, I would like him to know who I am.
Is this absentmindedness or arrogance?
In your next appointment ask your lawyer for money. Your lawyer will never forget you again.
This not only works with lawyers but also with accountants. Although, with accountants watch out for seizures and any other adverse medical reaction, which could lead to a claim.
It does not work with bankers who treat requests for money with indifference or mild amusement, although missed repayments work pretty well.
If it was arrogance, your lawyer would not see you at all and leave it to his secretary.
I am sure your lawyer would be mortified as I would be, if you were one of my clients, which you are not, are you?
