The link below is to an article targeted at plaintiff’s attorneys explaining how they can capitalize on current conditions to make more money (like they need help). He astutely points out some very specific reasons that now is a good time to be a plaintiff, especially if you are suing a busine$$.
It will sound familiar to you if you have known me for some time, as I have been warning our partners and clients for over two years that the depressed economy and current social and political environment requires us to be more aware and defensive than ever before. We are faced with a nation of desperate people looking for additional sources of income, many of whom are fueled by a sense of entitlement based on the actions of the government and big business. This, “I want some money too…” mindset presents a huge business development opportunity for plaintiff’s attorneys.
Skeptical? Spend just one day being “aware” of the massive increase in plaintiff law advertising and you will that the author of this article is exactly on point. Now is a dangerous time to be a successful business owner in the U.S. Please be defensive in your thoughts and actions, take the right steps and then practice fearlessly. As always, please let us know how we can help.
