My most important client is not the diplomat who called from overseas for wire instructions so he could send me his retainer for a post divorce dispute.
My most important client is not the stock broker who made a million dollars last year and is looking at life time alimony and his soon to be ex-wife’s mounting legal fees that he may have to pay.
My most important client is not the wealthy businesswoman who brings her daughter to my office for a parenting plan and separation agreement.
Last night, my seven year old son looked up at me and said, “Dad, can you come to my school play tomorrow?” I set all those urgent cases aside this morning and spent three otherwise billable hours waiting for my son to say his three lines. Because he is my most important client.
