Deliver on Your Word | Q&A with Riah Greathouse, Personal Injury Lawyer
I think that it's very important to say what you mean. And mean what you say. So often, you have attorneys specifically in this business who will promise you the moon, they'll say, oh, I'll give you a, you know, a billion dollars. You know, before they've even had a chance to look at the facts. I think that if you were very realistic with someone, and you communicate and you're upfront, then that's going to set the tone for the rest of that relationship. The number one commitment is to deliver on your word. If you can't be trusted with your word, what you say that you're going to do, how are you going to do anything? How are you gonna have any partnerships? How are you going to have any relationship so whether it's a client, or one of our referring physicians, or anyone who chooses to work with us, they know that we we do what we say that we're going to do? Absolutely, because it's some point, that client, even if you sign them, if you don't keep your word, you're going to end up hurting that client. But there are attorneys who are so first, they're not client first. And they undertake actions that end up hurting that client, I feel that the clients first in order to put them first you have to be upfront and honest at all times. reputation and and trust go hand in hand. I think that if you set the tone for having a great reputation, then it's it's so much easier for that relationship with all parties involved, because they know that that you're going to do what you say that you're going to do that you're going to do with morals, that you're going to do it with class, you know, but in the converse, you know, once you you start to have a negative reputation, doing anything to win, you know, cheating the system, then you know, it's hard. that's a that's a short lived, when, if at all, and I think it always always comes crashing down.
