Lawyers that attract clients are called rainmakers. Everyone knows that the rainmakers are the most highly compensated lawyers in their firms.
Almost all lawyers make some kind of rain. But, many let the rain – or future potential revenue – flow away because they lack the expertise to handle different matters.
So if you’re a rainmaker: Are you letting the rain run into the ocean?
What an Island in Kauai can Teach You
The Hawaiian island of Kauai has to be one of the most beautiful places in the world. You might have seen the lush landscapes of Kauai in the TV series “Lost”. The island is as beautiful as that series’ ending was disappointing.
Mount Waiʻaleʻale, near the center of the island, is one of the most remarkable places and one of the wettest spots on earth, with an annual average rainfall of 460 inches. That’s over 38 feet of rainfall. When it rains (most of the time), waterfalls form as the rain streams down the mountain.
Despite this abundant rainfall, Kauai has a constant water shortage. It seems much of this water is allowed to run right into the ocean.
Are you like Kauai?
For example, let’s say you are an experienced litigator. You successfully represent a client in a contract dispute. Six months later, that client needs a will. That isn’t your area, so you send him to an Estate Planning lawyer… and the rain runs in the ocean.
