The amount of correspondence that comes in and goes out on a daily basis around here is usually at a high volume. With the give and take of written thoughts, I get to see a lot of firm letterhead come across my desk. I, for one, find the way each firm announces themselves to the letter’s recipient a fascinating analysis project (for the times when I am bored out of my mind).
My firm is simple: “Attorneys at Law” and others are just as effective: “Attorneys and Counselors at Law” and “Attorneys” to name a few obvious ones. Then, there are the add-ons: “A professional corporation” “Not a partnership” and “A partnership”
I think it would be a lot more effective if the firms and lawyers would stop trying to be professional and just engage in an effective communication strategy that indicates what that firm does. For example:
with the highest grade and quantity of paper
If nothing else, it would make me laugh at 5 on a Friday while reading all these damn letters…
