They’re great because they can pay their bills (if they feel like it). They’re not so great because they demand the world and don’t like to talk to their lawyer when they don’t feel like it. I realized this my first year in practice. Sure it’s nothing
much to realize but a PI client is much easier to deal with, at least mine were.

poor people are grateful that the attorney is fighting on their behalf. rich people see them as another servant

Of course, there are plenty of poor people who treat their lawyers like sh-t, and rich people who treat their lawyers well, but altogether, I found that poor / less educated people look up to lawyers and rich people look down on them.

*note: a big exception is when the attorney is working for free or on contingency, then the poor clients don't value the service they're getting and can't understand why the attorney isn't doing more

Make sure to file the collections action after the statute of limitations for legal malpractice has run.
