Chris Engelman: A Look at the Financials for Lawyers

In this episode, Steve Fretzin and Chris Engelman discuss:

  • Understanding what your client is looking to do and what their challenges are. 
  • Common mistakes lawyers make with their finances. 
  • Similarities between wealth management advisors and lawyers. 
  • Be proactive in building your client relationships. 


Key Takeaways:

  • Take a step back and think. Newspapers are in the business of selling newspapers and what sells is bad news. 
  • There is risk in both small firms and law firms. The types of risks being made are just different. 
  • People will spend what they make. Working with a financial planner will allow you to spend that money wisely for your future and what you want out of your life. 
  • Your wealth advisor should be treating your money the way they treat their own. 


“It’s knowing how these clients are going to tick. Knowing what their hot buttons are, what they’re concerned about, what’s going on with their family, what’s going on with their health, and being a real human being.” —  Chris Engelman
