Sometimes its all about who you know.

I recently had a client reach out to me about problems he was having with his landlord.  He was renting an apartment in a relatively big city and his heating did not work.  After numerous promises by his landlord to fix the problem, he decided that it was necessary to take legal action.  I met with the client to discuss his options.  We decided it would be best to withhold rent until the problem was fixed and notify the landlord of that intent.  The next day I drafted the necessary documents, printed them out, and was preparing to send them by mail when I realized that I had a friend that knew the landlord.  I called my friend and had the problem taken care of that night.  Sometimes being an attorney is more about being a member of the community than anything.
