Lawyer: "Here are my conditions. I agree to represent you. When I need to get hold of you I want you to answer. When I need to know what you want me to do, I want clear answers. If I call you and tell you that you have to [do something], then I have already decided that it is necessary. You will have to [do it] and not make a fuss about it. Can you live with that?"
Client: "I can"
Lawyer: "And if you start playing up, I stop being your lawyer. Understood?"
It's basic stuff, but all too many clients just don't get it
