When Starting a Law Firm Don't Forget to Take a Break

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! The world doesn’t revolve around you. It will continue to spin around every day even if you don’t wake up and put in a full day of work. The sun will continue to rise. The phone will continue to ring. If you are starting a law firm, sometimes this is hard to remember. But what better time to talk about this than around the holidays. Thanksgiving was on Thursday. As you know, I recently started my own law firm (which, by the way, when do you think it stops being recently and turns into something different, like some time ago, or “back when […]

Payment and Your New Law Firm – Always Get Your Money Up Front

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! Just to warn you, this post is not going to be the most politically correct I’ve ever written. But this is a blog about how to start a successful law firm, so I have to tell it how it is. I will make a few broad generalizations that I know don’t hold true to everyone. That is why they are generalizations. But the lesson holds true, and if you aren’t following it, give it a try and see how much better your law firm runs. Here we go. Your clients do not want to pay their legal bills. They think you are overpriced. […]

How to Network When Starting Your Law Firm

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! One of the things I try to do a lot is talk to other people who have started their own law firm or are thinking about starting their own law firm to find out what they are doing. Invariably the ones that aren’t making any money or are really struggling are spending a lot of time “networking.” This means going to meetings with various other struggling practitioners and handing out business cards and acting like something is going to come of it. If you are doing this – stop it – it won’t work! What I always ask these people to tell me […]

When Starting a Law Firm, Don't Be Afraid to Ask For Help!

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 can’t remember how much I’ve told you about myself (aside from the things I’m doing to open a successful criminal defense law firm) and I’m not going to look back to figure it out. So, if this is more detailed or less detailed than you already know, too bad (if you care). In general, I am a criminal defense attorney and DUI attorney (I consider them to be different technically) who, almost one year ago from today moved from a small city in the Midwest to a large city in the Pacific Northwest. When I moved to said city, I didn’t know […]
