I was impressed by hired outside counsel who sent a one page update every month, even if it said nothing happened that month but X and Y were planned. That's a good practice and it would be impressive also to put on the bill: "Monthly Update - no charge".

There's nothing more annoying than playing phone tag with a lawyer. I had a traffic violation I wanted to fight, but the guy apparently needed a phone answer service, because no one wanted to answer half of the time. Ended up changing service.
