How to deal with disorganized clients

A lady who already displayed some warning signs wanted me to advise her about a child custody case in Germany. In the following conversation, I am the part in dark blue.

I haven’t heard from her again.

By the way, I am surprised by the number of people contacting me and trying to hire me to get a copy of their own divorce decree because they lost it. It would be so easy to get it from the lawyer who represented them in that proceeding, from the court or even from the ex-spouse. Really no need to hire a new lawyer for that.

    The „give a shit“ factor is important when accepting a client. If they do not care, why should you?
