Katy Mickelson: Taking Care of Relationships and Reputation

In this episode, Steve Fretzin and Katy Mickelson discuss:

  • The critical role of relationships in building your law firm.
  • Relationships with clients and relationships with business partners.
  • Creating key strategic partnerships.
  • Managing expectations.

Key Takeaways:

  • You have to balance providing value with your firm and providing value to your clients.
  • A lot of family law is based on trust and a feeling for your attorney. You need to understand how you attract clients and what it is that keeps them with you.
  • Listening and asking questions, from both a business development standpoint and a client management standpoint, has always been and will always be really important.
  • It is a never ending learning process – what works for one client may not work for another.

“I do it purposely – I network, I create relationships with purpose, because you can’t be everywhere, it’s just not effective.” —  Katy Mickelson
