Abstract

Clients come to lawyers for help. They come to lawyers because lawyers are "skilled helpers" - their training and experience enables them, through their interactions with clients, to help clients to manage problem situations and to take advantage of opportunities in life. Lawyers are specialists in the law but the needs of clients may extend beyond those that are strictly legal in nature. This is not surprising since lawyers, like other skilled helpers, "often deal with people in times of crisis and distress".
