During my 30 years as an attorney, I’ve come to realize that no two legal situations are ever quite the same. As an example, let’s consider the way different clients react to a word that frequently comes up in my practice: “protect.”
"Protect' is a broad term. It means a lot of things to a lot of people but ultimately always points to the things that matter most to them.
To some — for instance, those contemplating their future — it means carrying on their legacy and ensuring their families are well looked after once they’re gone. To others, the word brings up the thought of securing their business or their assets — two things they’ve worked hard to build and grow over years.
