There you are all alone, your lawyer has turned against you, treating you like the enemy. Perhaps you questioned his/her strategy, competence, or billings, and s/he reacted like a cornered cat. What do you do?
Jim Moorhead, Harvard College and Columbia Law School graduate and partner at a major Washington, D.C. law firm, just published a book titled The Instant Survivor – Right Ways to Respond When Things Go Wrong. Mr. Moorhead’s book about managing corporate and personal crises can also be used as a lifeline for those facing isolation in the wake of an adversarial attorney.
Mr. Moorhead sets forth four seemingly simple, yet proven steps to take when facing crisis:
STAY FROSTY: Remain clam and focused when a crisis begins
SECURE SUPPORT: Tap into your network of personal and professional contacts
STAND TALL: Take full charge of your response
SAVE YOUR FUTURE: Prepare for post-crisis success
This 199 page book is chock full of advice, engaging everyday life and celebrity stories, and easy to follow — when you’re in a fog — steps to climb out of a crisis. Those facing an adversarial attorney now have a how-to companion to begin the navigation process.
