Plenty of great technical lawyers return their calls and have mediocre or worse practices. Connecting more effectively with clients is the focus of Selling and Communication Skills for Lawyers. "This book focuses on both selling and communicating because they're very similar skills," says Asher. "Once you can communicate with existing clients effectively, it's easy to learn how to win clients. It just takes a little planning and a few key tactics. This book helps you do it all."

“Take advantage of every opportunity to practice your communication skills so that when important occasions arise, you will have the gift, the style, the sharpness, the clarity, and the emotions to affect other people.” – Jim Rohn
