I think this is where lawyers have not managed to change the branding (of their services): people are not 100 % sure that if they go to a lawyer, their problem will be fixed. This comes back to design thinking. One of the universal traits of design thinking is that you want to empathize with the people so that you understand what they’re dealing with and what their problem is. And you want to reassure them that you have a solution to their problem.
Legal services are not famous for their human centricity. Quite contrary, legal services have a reputation for being expensive, unpredictable and lacking transparency. Design as a human centric method to enhance user experience would therefore have a lot to offer for legal services. Often lawyers might think that they are client-centric because it says so on their webpage, but how to make sure that they really are and how to start the journey towards client-centrism? And how can lawyers tell about their expertise in social media?
