Starting a Law Firm | Goals for 2010

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 know I know, another goals for 2010 post. If you read any other blogs then you are probably seeing these pop up all over the place. Everyone is telling you how to set goals you can achieve and set goals that will help make starting a law firm a reality for you. Well, I’m selfish. I care about your success, but I like to do a little less talk and a little more show. To do that, I’m going to tell you what my goals are for 2010 for starting my law firm (there won’t be any personal goals in here, so […]

Turning Down Clients the Key to Starting a Law Firm Successfully

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! You may have just read the title of this post and immediately thought of clicking away. After all, how can you make any money if you turn down clients? Isn’t the goal to make as much as possible, and isn’t that goal only attained by getting the maximum number of clients? I mean, if you are just starting a law firm, isn’t any client better than no client? The short answers are: you can make more money if you turn down certain clients; the goal is to make as much money as possible, but that doesn’t necessarily mean getting as many clients as […]

Starting a Law Firm and Time Management

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! When you are starting a law firm one of the first things you are going to have to think about is how to manage your time, particularly if you’re starting a solo law firm. Every once in a while I make a short list of all the hats I might wear in any given day, and it ends up looking a little something like this (in no particular order): attorney; receptionist; paralegal; office manager; marketing manager; and customer service representative. As you might expect, my days can go by in a flurry feeling like I get nothing done. To get the most out […]

When Starting a Law Firm, Be Careful What You Outsource

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 difficult tasks you will face soon after starting your own law firm is what to delegate and what to do yourself. And more importantly, what you delegate in house and what you delegate out of house. I was reminded of this lesson today when a colleague of mine (in the sense that all criminal attorneys are colleagues of mine) was called out for outsourcing his marketing and having the marketing company use some less than professional methods of marketing. If you know anything about internet marketing (and if you don’t and are starting your own law firm you better learn) […]
