End of the Year To-Dos

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! Believe it or not, it’s the end of the year again. Christmas is only four short weeks away, and I honestly can’t believe it. The time has flown by, and as I look back I can see a lot of opportunities seized and a lot of opportunities missed. And it’s important to recognize and understand both, so as not to lose one and to be on the lookout for the other. As the name of this post implies, we’ve got some end of the year starting a law firm to-do’s. There are two that I am thinking of, neither one of which I’ve […]

Law Firm Marketing | Creating an Identity

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! This is the second in what will hopefully be a long line of Wednesday law firm marketing posts. Today we’re going to talk a little bit about getting creative – thinking outside the box to get more customers. Here we go! One of the things I find the most frustrating about marketing my law firm is the fact that everyone so often seems to do the same thing. Don’t believe me? Google DUI attorney and start clicking around. Everyone is “aggressive,” everyone is “dedicated,” and everyone is “experienced.” I even have that stuff on my website. The problem is, I have no idea […]

Law Firm Marketing | Why Have a Blog?

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 like to talk about law firm marketing, and I used to have a different site devoted to it. But I just decided I should combine everything here. So I am. Starting this week you should be getting one post devoted more to marketing a law firm and one devoted more to the other areas of starting a law firm. Sound good? Not hearing any responses from the crowd I’ll assume that’s a no (by the way, that’s kind of a bad trial lawyer joke – I heard someone ask and respond to about fifty voir dire questions like that once – why […]

Starting a Law Firm | General Practice or Niche Practice?

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! So we’ve had our law firm marketing post of the week. Now for the practice management arm of the blog. Today, as the title implies, we are going to talk about a general practice vs. a niche practice, and we’re going to do so in the context of a comment I got a couple of days ago. Here it is: Hi. I’ve been enjoying your blog. I’ve been trying to get the courage to set up my own law firm, and your blog is one of the most positive sources online. It should be said however that I’m here in Ireland, where the […]

Law Firm Marketing | Getting Your Money

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! We all know this blog is about starting a law firm. There are tons of questions when you are starting out that need to be answered: what kind of business entity do you want; where are you going to have an office; are you going to have an office; how are you going to set up the phones; how much is insurance? The list goes on and on. But the more I talk to people about starting a law firm and the more I grow in my business, the more I see it coming down to two things – law firm marketing and […]

My Law Clerk Quit Today!

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! If you’ve read my previous posts you know that in the past 6 weeks or so I’ve hired both a law clerk and a legal assistant. Since that time I’ve been really pleased with the way the things were going, particularly with the legal assistant. She’s got a good attention to detail, she shows up to work every day on time, she’s got a good personality, basically though it’s early she’s looking like a great hire. The law clerk, on the other hand, I wasn’t so pleased with. Though I thought she was trying hard I just plain didn’t think she was taking […]

New Assistant | Law Firm Marketing

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 New Legal Assistant I just finished up my first week with my new legal assistant, and I must say I can really see the benefits accumulating already. It’s going to take a couple two or three weeks until she’s really comfortable doing everything she has to do, but once that happens, my life is going to get much easier. If you are starting a law firm then you know you are continuously running into “firsts.” And having this legal assistant is a first for me (her name is Kelsey, by the way – I’m going to start referring to her by her […]
