3 Common Failures Attorneys Make That Could Cost Them Their Jobs
 
  • No matter if it is your first or fifth job as a lawyer, if you’ve been fired it can be heartbreaking.
  • Nonetheless, it happens, and sometimes for a plethora of reasons, some common while others aren’t so common.
  • Continue reading this article to find out what the most common reasons are for an attorney’s termination from their law firm.

Every business has its nuances. In medicine, doctors are required to have a sense of care that has been translated into “bedside manner.” If a doctor does not have this type of character to their personality, there’s a very strong chance they may one day realize they’ve lost all their patients.

Building contractors have their own array of nuances that involve open communications with their clients as well as attention to detail when it comes to the construction of a house or a building.

While the nuances of a lawyer, particularly a lawyer hired on by a BigLaw firm, might be much different from any other profession, those nuances are still very present in the legal profession, and if not properly followed, can have a profound effect on an attorney’s career.

The thing is those nuances, whether as a doctor, contractor, or lawyer speak to the person’s character and their “care” for the job. With lawyers, the nuances are almost always law firm-related, which in the end can determine whether that lawyer continues on with the firm or is fired from the firm.

To amplify things, the nuances found in a law firm are really quite easy to work with. Or, if not, quite easy to learn from and gain (or even regain) should you find yourself terminated.

Success Stories

LawCrossing was probably the best legal board I have used. I liked the layout and it was user friendly. I tried to use another job board, but it was not user friendly and was kind of a pain, whereas LawCrossing was easy to use to find jobs. I really liked it. I would certainly recommend this site and service to my colleagues.
