Should lawyers tell their clients to get a second opinion?

You often hear of medical patients getting a second opinion on the diagnoses they have been given, but how often do you hear a lawyer tell their client to seek a “second opinion“?

My guess – pretty rare.

But this is a topic raised in a post by Jordan Rotham on abovethelaw.com recently and certainly worthy of consideration. I particularly like Jordan’s comment that:

All told, no one likes to be judged by another professional, and it can be annoying to answer questions and furnish materials so a client can get a second opinion. However, attorneys and clients alike should be more open to second opinions so that lawyers can provide the best representation possible.

Enjoy the day everyone
