I won’t say that lawyers are like the college chancellor Bob Weiss met��but maybe some are worse. They don’t understand how to say hello. When someone hands you their business card, you should certainly return the favor. Yes, “favor” because both of you could possibly help each other’s organization in terms of marketing.
Further, you should repeat their name in your conversation. So, why not share your business card and introduce yourself as suggested by Bob Weiss in his fine article on “Make it Easy for Them to Remember Your Name” which appeared in the ABA’s “Law Practice Today”
Whether it is working a room, or simply meeting someone at the Mall, why not make your name and firm memorable to those you meet.
