"It’s better to not do the work and not get paid than to do the

out, practicing "door law" is very tempting. Before you succumb to the pressure of taking any client who crosses your threshold, stop and make an honest assessment. Are the client and the case a good match for you? If not, you may be taking on a future collection problem or potential legal malpractice claim.
