Zach McGee
January 27, 2024


Law schools, law firms and other CLE programs teach you how to “Think Like A Lawyer,” but succeeding in a law firm environment also requires you to “Think Like A Client” so that your clients will like and respect you, and ideally, want to hire you again and again. Having spent more than twenty-five years as a law firm litigator, an in-house lawyer and now as a client, Zach McGee offers law firm lawyers at every level sage advice on what you should be doing -- and what you should not be doing -- to put your best foot forward when working with your clients.
