Abstract

Lawyers and Clients: Critical Issues in Interviewing and Counseling examines practical and theoretical challenges lawyers face with clients. Each chapter explores a critical issue in interviewing and counseling, such as developing connection across difference, dealing with atypical clients, and using engaged client-centered counseling. Ellmann, Dinerstein, Gunning, Kruse, and Shelleck investigate these issues primarily through detailed analysis of lawyer-client conversations, which invite the reader to consider and critique the lawyer’s choices. A key theme is “engaged client-centered lawyering,” which emphasizes the importance of client choice and the impact of lawyers on clients, and affirms lawyers’ ability to achieve wise engagement with clients.
