Like other law firms, a fledgling legal practice in Annapolis is looking for clients. But this one is targeting clients who need but can't afford a lawyer, has a retired judge on the payroll and is being financially supported so it doesn't need to turn a profit. The law firm of Michelle J. Moodispaw teams the former public defender with Joseph P. Manck, who retired from the Anne Arundel County bench three years ago. The goal is to attract people who earn too much money to qualify for free legal services — that's a poverty-level income — but can't pay full freight.

Federal authorities arrested an Annapolis accountant yesterday on charges that he stole money from clients and defrauded the Internal Revenue Service on his own tax returns, collecting more than $130,000 in refunds that he was not owed. Charles G. Fagan, 61, was released after an initial appearance yesterday in U.S. District Court in Baltimore, where Magistrate Judge James K. Bredar ordered Fagan not to perform any accounting-related work while awaiting trial. Bredar told Fagan he could contact current clients, however, to advise them that they may need to request an extension for filing income tax forms.

A FINANCIAL planner once said that the best client would be Rip Van Winkle, someone who slept for 20 years and let the planner build the portfolio. A comatose client isn't everyone's ideal, however. Some financial advisers say their favorite clients are knowledgeable, trusting and open to ideas. "They know how to take gains and how to take losses," said Joan Jones of A. G. Edwards & Sons in Baltimore. "They know how to say thank you. That's not what a lot of people do." But just as there are good clients, there are bad ones.

This week I had lunch with a former client who wanted some advice. Since we had last worked together, new competitors had entered his organization's market, sources of funding were drying up, and his client base was showing signs of jumping ship. "What should I do?," he asked in desperation."Have you asked your clients?" I responded. "They're the first ones you should be asking that question."For all the pearls of wisdom that radiate from consultant gurus, none shines as bright or is as valuable as what your own clients can tell you. The trouble is that non-profits -- and most for-profit ventures, too, for that matter -- simply do not ask.Whether it's total quality management or some other client-centered approach, every successful venture starts with the client or customer.
