I recently had to select an attorney. I was given names of people to talk to. One I could not reach. One did not practice in the area I was seeking. Others were very far away. I thought about a man who is in one of my business groups who I really like and respect. I decided to contact him. He always calls me Dr.Gelman, whereas everyone else calls me Natalie. I have pointed that out to him, but he continues which reflects his humor. I was at his office looking over some documents I had brought to him. He flipped through them (truly flipped), and said, “Natalie, this is not a problem.” I said, “You just called me Natalie.” He said, “You are in my office now.”
I picked the right attorney. Humor matters.
