The Art of Lawyering Podcast 069: Starting a Non-Profit Law Firm with Shantelle Argyle
This is a pretty cool episode of The Art of Lawyering Podcast. We are going to talk about something that I didn’t have a lot of confidence could be pulled off.
Today we are going to talk about starting a non-profit law firm.
Shantelle Argyle is the co-founder of Open Legal Services, Utah’s first and only nonprofit modest means law firm. They take anyone and everyone, and their fee is based on their client’s income.
In this episode we talk about all kinds of fun things, including:
- Starting a law firm right out of law school;
- Fighting the government;
- The true definition of non-profit businesses;
- Why starting a non-profit law firm is so hard;
- Overcoming fear; and
- Much much more!
