As attorneys, we come across many prospects who inquire about our services. Some are ready to become clients on the spot, others need time to decide, and some need to be finessed. If someone does not immediately hire you, how do you follow up with them to reignite their interest in your services? Most law firms do not adequately follow up with previous prospects enough. This could be one of the easiest “wins” that you could have in your legal practice in the next week.
