Ann M. Murphy quoted in article "Advice for New Attorneys Starting Out (and Those Who Need a Refresher)"
Below is an excerpt:
"I think when you're a young lawyer you're probably so overwhelmed with learning the law," said Ann Murphy, an equity partner at Quarles & Brady in Milwaukee. "But any kind of investment you can make in terms of your client - going to visit their business, for instance - helps put your advice in context."
"You can understand what's important to them, what keeps them up at night. You can be much more than a lawyer; you can be a business adviser. It makes you more valuable as a lawyer, and it's more personally rewarding. You feel you're much more part of the team, and your client appreciates that you matter to them. You're in this together."
