Asked and Answered

Feb 1, 2016 8:30 AM CST

You may have noticed that some lawyers are often quoted in the press. They might have practices that naturally garner attention, or perhaps they are great at explaining complex issues succinctly and have a good camera presence. Or it could just be that they’re known for returning phone calls and emails in a timely manner.
