Q: Dear Niche Doctor, I started a small law firm and am faced with a problem that has been with me ever since I started law school. Wherever I go – social functions, wherever – people ask me for free advice. I’ll get introduced to someone and the next thing I know they’ll be saying, “You know, I have this problem…” I don’t want to be rude, but it’s my living and I get mad just thinking about it. And sometimes I feel guilty. I just don’t know where to draw the line. Thoughts?
