"Chasing chickens."
Keeping up with the attorneys is like chasing chickens. Sometimes they forget appointments and phone calls and they aren't where they are supposed to be. It helps if you're on top of the calendar and are able to call and/or email to make sure they don't forget calls. Sometimes that doesn't even work, but you tried.
