If you set up a free consultation with one of our Tacoma attorneys, the first member of the Helland team you're likely to meet is our Canine Liaison, Slater. His specialties are power naps, fetch, and making you feel right at home.
What the heck is a Canine Liaison?
I guess you could say I'm part spokesdog, part client companion. When a nervous client comes in, I let them give me a pet. It calms them down. If they look cold, I might lie on their feet or something.
I speak for Helland Law Group because people tend to trust dogs quicker...unless you're a pitbull. Although, that isn't exactly fair, is it? It just takes a couple of bad pitbulls to give the whole breed a bad name.
Yeah, I do. The lawyers that “bark” the loudest get the most attention and make attorneys everywhere look bad. But there are plenty of great lawyers out there. Take my humans, for example. Bob, Andrew and Patti are all really compassionate and super approachable attorneys. Are they smart, tough, and good at their jobs, too? You bet. But people like working with them because they're so down to earth. I mean, they hired a dog, for heaven's sake.
I'd be lying if I said I didn't love photo shoots. The trip to the groomer beforehand, the belly rubs for holding a pose, the treats. I mean, what dog wouldn't be into that? But the best part of my job is being part of a team that takes great care of clients. Yep. That's what gets me out of the kennel every morning.
