Certified Legal Nurse Consultants never want to look foolish or say the wrong thing to an attorney-client. But what if it’s not you, but the attorney who requires redirection? In this blog I’ve asked 5 CLNC® Pros to share how they approach an attorney-client who is wrong. Here’s what they say:
Every year we have a chance to reinvent ourselves not just physically and spiritually, but also technologically. The thing about tech-related New Year’s resolutions is that you can’t break them – otherwise you stunt your professional growth.
