Case in study:
Would a white client go to an Asian lawyer?
If the answer is mostly like no, how do Asian lawyers become successful in this country?

Also, are there bilingual lawyers out there who make money off of being the "bridge" between two differing countries?
If yes, are they usually corporate lawyers?

No. People try to get the best attorney they can afford.

    • LSN - What do you think of my choices?
Most people who call my office call because they see where my boss went to school (Vandy undergrad, UK Law.... local recognition is really important to the layman) and his experience in his field of law. We have plenty of black and white clients.... almost 50/50 if I had to guess.

PennyLane invented sweet. She has the patent on it. I tried to act sweet one time and she sued me.
