Wendy Wen Yun Chang, a Los Angeles-based partner in the Lawyers for the Profession® group at Hinshaw & Culbertson LLP, was quoted in the article "3 Things Legal Malpractice Attys Should Never Tell Clients" published by Law360 on June 7, 2016. 

The article identifies three phrases that a legal malpractice attorney should never tell their client to avoid compromising an otherwise-healthy attorney-client relationship. One phrase mentioned is "I can't talk right now" for which Ms. Chang emphasizes the importance of communication stating "[m]ost lawyers have a lot on their plate and are forced to juggle a multitude of matters. But delaying communication with a client facing a legal malpractice suit is a quick way to make a difficult time even harder for them."
