Your Story Is Important


         In most consultations, clients want to immediately jump into the facts. Nervous, stressed, angry, or scared, they want to tell their story. Everyone is ready to tell their story. They are ready to be listened to. They are ready to be believed. They are ready to be helped.

          Your story is important, but it doesn’t start and end with your legal matter. Your story is about who you are, where you’ve been, your journey, your education, and, most importantly, where you want to go. Your story is the timeline of everything that makes you who you are. Getting your story is extremely important. A good lawyer takes your story and communicates it to the other side, to the judge, and to juries.  A good lawyer is your story’s ambassador. What happened is not always as important as why it happened.

          So how does a lawyer get your story? A good lawyer listens. They want to know your history. They want to know where you have come from. Your medical history, information about your employment, and your family. If your accident or arrest is a snap shot of “who you are,” a good lawyer works to provide a motion picture of the rest of your story. Listening and becoming an ambassador of your story, and your case, is where it starts. The Borghardt Law Firm is ready to listen and tell your story.
