Starting a Law Firm | Technology

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 got an email from a guy who wanted to know what kind of a technology set up I have in my office. So here we go. This should be some fun, light reading for you all on a Friday afternoon! The way I’ll do it is just go from initial client phone call all the way through resolution of the case. Here we go. All of my client engagements start with a phone call or email from my website. Let’s talk about the phone first. My set up is like this. I have a google voice number, which I’ve had for about […]

Starting a 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! I read a lot of other blogs (among other things) and on a couple of blogs I read there was a lot of discussion about marketing and how that reflects on you as a lawyer. What happened was, some guy right out of law school got onto SoloSez, the American Bar Association’s website, and asked a question about marketing his practice. (Now remember, I am paraphrasing greatly here – if you know what I’m talking about and it didn’t go down like this I don’t care – there’s a lesson here either way). He started his law firm to be a civil lawyer […]

Starting a Law Firm Book Review | Lawyer 2.0 Part II

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’m sure most you read my post on the starting a law firm book I reviewed on Wednesday. If not you can read that post here. It got some interesting comments, one from Carolyn Elefant, a former lawyer turned starting a law firm guru (who I admittedly got a lot of information from before she started solo practice university), and one from the author of the book. The both make a couple of good points, so I wanted to talk about them. Carolyn’s Comment on My Lawyer 2.0 Review First, let’s talk about Carolyn Elefant’s comment. Here it is, in case you missed […]

Starting a Law Firm | Lawyer 2.0 Book Review and My New Book

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 all know that I’ve got big, grand plans to write a book about starting a law firm, right? And that my book would be different from all of the others because it would be updated to include today’s technological improvements as well as be more focused on the “business” side of owning a law firm? Well, now I’ve got some extra motivation out there to get started – a starting a law firm book I read yesterday called “Lawyer 2.0 – How to Build a Six-Figure Solo Practice in 12 Months or Less.” You can find the link to the book here.

How to Start a Law Firm | Law Clerk Search

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 I’m in the market for a law clerk. No, not a virtual one – and no, I don’t want your resume, unless you think you are extremely qualified and want to work for an extremely low wage (insert sarcasm, sort of). Since I hope you are all looking for law clerks this time of year (they are a great way to leverage resources – they aren’t that expensive and if you teach them well they can provide a great benefit) I thought I’d tell you about my process for finding a great law clerk. I’ve got to worn you, I haven’t completed […]

Starting a Law Firm | Leaving Another Firm

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’m such an idiot. I have been writing these posts about starting a law firm here for a couple years now, and not once have I talked about what you should be thinking about if you are leaving a firm to start another one. Stupid! Stupid! Stupid! Okay, I might be being a little hard on myself. But I have completely missed what is a very relevant topping with regards to starting a law firm. It took a lunch with a great attorney this week for me to realize people are doing this every day and I should talk about it on here. […]

Starting a Law Firm | The Conference Room Conundrum

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 guess this blog is supposed to have some day to day type of stuff in here, so that’s what this post will be about. As I’ve already written, I’m in the process of relocating my office. I found a great space – here are some pictures (a before view – I’ll show you an after view after I move in) – but I’ve hit a bit of a snag with the landlord. As you can see, the way it is set up is completely open. I like this. But I wanted to have a space where I can have some privacy if […]
