Starting a Law Firm | Where to Get Work

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! Another week, another installment of how to start a small law firm. In this installment, we are going to answer a reader question about something I’m sure all of you are curious about – where I got my clients when I first opened shop. Before I get into it I want to point out something that many of you considering starting a law firm probably won’t have to deal with – I didn’t have any connections in the community. What I mean is, I hadn’t ever even practiced law in the State. I didn’t know any lawyers, didn’t have a lot of friends […]

Starting a Law Firm | 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! Okay, okay, I get it. You want to see what it costs to open and run a law firm. At least that is what a lot of the search engine traffic is telling me. And I’m okay with that. One of the scariest things about starting a law firm is the unknown of how you are going to pay the bills every month (particularly the first year). So, today I’m going to let you into what I pay (approximately) a month for my law firm expenses. These numbers will not include some things you need to think about, like CLEs, bar dues, business […]

Starting a Law Firm | Are There Too Many Law Students?

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 read a lot of blogs. I read about business, I read about marketing, I read about criminal defense, and I read about starting a law firm (yes, there others out there!!). I was going through my reader today when I stumbled onto a post that cited an article discussing the number of law school graduates compared to the number of jobs. It got me thinking about your chances of success out there. These are the numbers, in a nutshell. 30,000 expected open jobs a year, and 45,000 graduates. Makes it look like we are about 33% overboard when it comes to churning […]

Starting a Law Firm | Don't be Afraid to do What's Best for You

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 know, the point of this blog, How to Start a Law Firm, is to help you open up your own successful law firm. To do that, sometimes I have to talk about things and say things that other people aren’t going to like. This might just be one of those times. Before I get too far along though, I want to point out that I am only criticizing the older generations of attorney (and probably some newer attorneys too) in this one area of being a lawyer, which is marketing. I rely heavily on people with a lot more experience than […]

How to Start a Law Firm | The Revenue Doubler System

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! Starting a law firm is not just about practicing law. For me, it is more than helping people who have been charged with crimes. It is more than keeping prosecutors and cops honest. It is a business. I am here to make money. I am here to provide for my family. The problem is, though, that law school (and college if you are a psychology major like I am) doesn’t teach you how to run a business. It doesn’t teach you the basics like accounting, marketing, management and the like, and it also doesn’t teach you about how to think like a business […]
