The move toward a new, and virtual, future has many dangerous twists and turns that the field of law needs to avoid. One of these turns is the degradation of the attorney client relationship.

The field of law is based upon a relationship of support, as it has been since the first Roman citizen called for the aid of counsel. The client has the choice to represent himself, but he comes to an attorney to gain assistance with a case that may be too big for him to handle alone. He comes to the attorney a position of weakness, and calls upon his support; a support that can only be maintained with face to face, human interaction.

We do need to move forward with the revolution in order to allow attorneys to break out from the crippling mold of the fat-cat firms; but firm fighting out of the way, our clients are the ones who need us to be a face for them to turn, so that we may do what it is that lawyers have been doing since Cicero was in the forum.
