Sophie’s Approach When Meeting a Client
“I love meeting new people,” Sophie says. “That is a big part of why I decided to become an attorney—to engage with the community.”
“I explain the process and try to give them beneficial information to ease their anxieties and concerns,” she says. “I think situations are less scary when you have more information about what can be done.”
What Is the Most Satisfying Aspect of Being a Personal Injury Lawyer?
Many people who reach out for help are unsure of their legal rights and unfamiliar with any legal processes. She says a satisfying aspect of being a personal injury attorney is providing compassion and understanding to people that are in distress and helping them understand their legal options.
Sophie is based in Joye Law Firm’s North Charleston office and is ready to assist if you have questions about a personal injury case or workplace injury claim.
