According to Megan,

One of the top concerns and complaints amongst clients in the legal field is lack of communication from their lawyer. This is an important concern, and should be addressed. A law firm’s success is directly dependent upon its ability to advocate for its clients, and it is important to remain communicative, efficient & effective, and transparent. Clients should unquestionably be the number one priority.
