“I'm an attorney, not a therapist or a member of the diplomatic corps.” “Thesubject is just too vague and touchy-feely.” “Clients should be able to just tellme what's going on or just get me the records, it's that straightforward.”“How can I possibly avoid problems if I don't know anything about thatspecific culture?” “We can't afford to spend extra time clients who come fromcultures where they chit-chat for an hour about their family and life beforetelling us what we need to know for their case.” “I hate this P.C. crap.”
