Starting a Law Firm Is Not For Everyone

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! There, I said it. Someone had to. Starting a law firm is not for everyone. And the going thought out there these days is “If I can’t find a job I’ll just start a law firm and everything will be fine.” No, it won’t. It can and it just may get worse. Much worse.

If an article refers to a link and there is no link, sorry, that’s consequence of the move. Enjoy! If you look in the archives, you will quickly see that this isn’t the one year anniversary of this blog. It’s actually the one year anniversary of me starting a law firm. On June 1 last year my doors officially opened for business. And I must say, it’s been a wild ride, both legally and from a business standpoint. I meant to write this post on the first of June, but was sidetracked by some work. Another important date is right around June 1 for me, my birthday. And this one just happened to be my 30th, so it was extra special. After […]
