Kevin M. Black
I have an extraordinary job. I love being a lawyer. I have the privilege of serving people I care about every day and get to use my mind, knowledge and experience to guide clients through some of the most difficult situations they will face. Becoming the best lawyer I can be is not a journey I take in isolation but one that involves each and every client. Every client is unique. Your experience is unique. My job is to understand, counsel and advocate. Your goals become my goals. Your fears and worries become my fears and worries. Together we try and figure out the best path to achieving your goals and how we can best minimize your fears or worries.
The attorney-client relationship is about listening and sharing, not dictating and forcing. I see so many lawyers forgetting that simple fact. Being a lawyer is about understanding the person in front of you. Who you are, what is important to you, and what do you want to achieve. It’s only when I understand you that I can truly help you see past all the fears, worries, challenges, and roadblocks. It’s only then that I can truly help you empower yourself and start again after a divorce, arrest, or life altering injury.
Some of my colleagues repeat the mantra that lawyers can only be effective when they specialize. I believe that to be nonsense and absolutely reject that conclusion. My reason for doing so is simple. I believe that working in a variety of, but related, practice areas prevents me from becoming “a divorce attorney,” or a “criminal defense attorney,” or a “personal injury attorney.” What do you think of when you repeat any of those labels? Probably not something positive. It may be because the minute a lawyer is labeled as one of those things I believe they become desensitized to the individual and their unique problems and personality. Instead they start to promote a cookie-cutter approach which tends to focus on maximizing profits for the lawyer rather than maximizing results for the client. I prefer being “an advocate” that happens to do divorce, criminal defense and personal injury work.
