How to Start a Law Firm | Law Firm Website SEO

This post is from the first blog I started, called “How to Start a Law Firm.” Over the years I’ve moved to different sites a few times and wanted to catalog all of my content in one place. If an article refers to a link and there is no link, sorry, that’s consequence of the move. Enjoy! I was looking up my visitor stats today (yes, I can tell when all of you come here, and even where you come from!) and realized I hadn’t posted on here for over a week. I’m sure you are all just dying to hear what is going on, so here you go. In the interests of full disclosure, my time hasn’t been extremely fascinating, busy, or anything else related to the fun that should be associated with opening your law practice. This is for one simple reason – I’m waiting to get my bar results back. See, I’ve been a practicing attorney in […]

How to Start a Law Firm | Favorite Blogs and Update

This post is from the first blog I started, called “How to Start a Law Firm.” Over the years I’ve moved to different sites a few times and wanted to catalog all of my content in one place. If an article refers to a link and there is no link, sorry, that’s consequence of the move. Enjoy! Before I get started, I want to thank those people that have left comments on here recently. They are very much appreciated and always welcome. As I think you will soon learn, every person’s journey to solo law practice is a little bit different, but the twists and turns are much more easily dealt with if they are anticipated. Now, on to what I’ve been doing. I’ve actually meant to post on here for the last couple days (and respond and post your comments – sorry!) but have just been busy trying to get everything sorted out. But, because I haven’t been posting […]

Starting a Law Firm | Do I Need an Office?

This post is from the first blog I started, called “How to Start a Law Firm.” Over the years I’ve moved to different sites a few times and wanted to catalog all of my content in one place. If an article refers to a link and there is no link, sorry, that’s consequence of the move. Enjoy! Over the last couple days, in addition to other things, which I’ll talk about later, I’ve been doing some serious soul searching to determine if I really needed a law office outside the home. Because I actually want this to work, I realize I need to focus on two critical factors: managing cash flow; and getting clients. And an office raises serious questions for each. Now, before I say this, understand that I am all for the home office, and if my practice was going to focus more on transactional work or other work that was more document centric, I’d be all for […]

Starting a Law Firm | Tracking Expenses

This post is from the first blog I started, called “How to Start a Law Firm.” Over the years I’ve moved to different sites a few times and wanted to catalog all of my content in one place. If an article refers to a link and there is no link, sorry, that’s consequence of the move. Enjoy! As you can tell by the title of this post, I’ve been spending the last few days finalizing my law firm business plan, which means, at some point, trying to nail down the financials. For me, the financials include start up expenses, monthly expenses, and projecting income. And if you are like me, this is the most difficult part of the entire starting a law firm process. The first part of determining expenses is figuring out what you are going to need to make your law firm work when you get started. A lot of this is common sense, but if you poke […]

How to Start a Law Firm | Great Entreprenuership Book and One Page Business Plan

This post is from the first blog I started, called “How to Start a Law Firm.” Over the years I’ve moved to different sites a few times and wanted to catalog all of my content in one place. If an article refers to a link and there is no link, sorry, that’s consequence of the move. Enjoy! A couple of days ago I was out getting my hair cut and stopped by the bookstore to see what they had to offer. I’m a voracious reader and love to get my hands on a new book whenever I can. Because I am now constantly in the entrepreneurial mood, I thought I’d check out the business section, peruse the starting a business section, and see if I could find anything worth reading. I’m glad I did, because I ended up stumbling upon a great book, not only for information and advice on starting a law firm, but encouragement that it can be […]

How to Start a Law Firm | Find Attorneys Who Went Out on Their Own

This post is from the first blog I started, called “How to Start a Law Firm.” Over the years I’ve moved to different sites a few times and wanted to catalog all of my content in one place. If an article refers to a link and there is no link, sorry, that’s consequence of the move. Enjoy! If you are even a semi-regular follower of this blog, you will see that I haven’t posted here in a few days. There are a couple of reasons for that. First, I played in a golf tournament on Thursday afternoon about an hour and a half away from Seattle (don’t ask how I played – it wasn’t pretty). Second, on Friday I kind of slacked off a little, only doing a couple of blog posts and working a little bit on getting my blogs indexed for the keywords I need. And third, I knew I was having lunch today with a fellow solo […]
