Starting a Law Firm | Timeline for Success

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 funny thing happened to me yesterday that is a perfect starting a law firm post. I was sitting in my office, working away as usual, when the owner of the space I lease from (who is also a DUI attorney in the area, by the way) poked his head in to ask if we could have a chat. This guys okay as a person, but I’ve quickly learned he’s not talking to me or anyone else unless he wants something or unless he’s got something to tell me. He didn’t want anything. He just hired a new attorney, and while that was […]

Starting a Law Firm | Remember Why You Do It

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 start a business, whether a law firm, a restaurant, or anything else, it’s easy to let it engulf your entire life. What ends up happening (or at least what’s happened to me) is that your business is always in the back of your mind, no matter what you are doing, and you are constantly thinking of new things you can do to help make your business better. In the end this is great for your new law firm, but it can be bad for you personally. In honor of spring finally sprouting out here in my neck of the woods, I’m […]

I Finally Reached Number One on Google. What Does it Mean?

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! It’s Masters Sunday, and I really don’t have a lot of concentration going on today. Not only do I have a fantasy golf game going on that I’m interested, I have the added distraction of a Masters Pool (currently in second and need a little help to win) and the Masters itself – not sure if you were aware but there’s a guy named Tiger Woods who decided to play this week. I’m rooting for him. Everyone makes mistakes. Now back to helping you start your law firm. If you read the title of this post you might expect that I already have […]

Starting a Law Firm and Managing Expectations

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 I started my law firm less than a year ago, I had a one year plan, a five year plan, and a ten year plan. The one year plan was aggressive but achievable. The five year plan even more aggressive. And the ten year plan had the sky as the limit. I think when you are thinking about starting your law firm and trying to determine what you can expect (and I’m talking about money for the most part here), I think it’s important to manage expectations. It is really easy for the math to get out of hand in your head, […]
