San Antonio Lawyers – Before you make that call to a law
Check to see if the lawyer you’re thinking about hiring
belongs to a professional organization that exists to serve the
needs of the public. Some attorneys represent the needs of a private
person one week and the needs of big business the next week. I
don’t know about you – but that really bothers me!
San Antonio Lawyers – Be sure to read this before hiring
I once shared an elevator ride with several attorneys who were
just leaving a court room. As I stood in the back of the elevator,
the attorneys continued with their conversation as if I had not
been there. But I’m glad I was -- because I learned a very
important fact of life!
One attorney said, “Joe, if you’ll look out for me
on this case, I’ll be sure to take care of you next time
Attorney Joe then responded: “Okay, Bill. It seems I owe
you one anyway. We’ll roll over on this one then –
but don’t forget me now!”
Well, I don’t know if those promised favors ever materialized,
but I didn’t forget Joe or Bill. And, rest assured, I wouldn’t
want either one of them representing me!
So, an attorney’s membership in a professional organization
that truly serves the needs of the public is so important. Here’s

Membership in this association of San Antonio lawyers requires
that the majority of a lawyer’s work be in representing
members of the general public. Lawyers who provide regular representation
to insurance companies or other big business interests are not
allowed to join.
