The life blood of your business. Keep it flowing.
As a veteran of nearly 39 years of real law practice (by “real” I mean a broad general practice serving the general public, small businesses, families, and individuals in a myriad of contract, trial, and appellate matters), I know the importance of cash flow. In my quest for financial security and success, I have perused every bar journal article, attended numerous practice management CLE’s, and varied my approach to billing and collections to...

Sometimes we want to help our clients beyond good lawyering. Can it be unethical, though?

Great road map - sometimes we all need some rerouting.
In 1927 when my grandfather began practicing law, this was a viable method of marketing and rainmaking. There were only 131,000 attorneys in the United States. If you averaged this out, there were only 2,620 lawyers in each state (yes, I know that some states and cities had more attorneys than others, I’m making a point here). You could literally hang a sign outside and people would hire you. Now, 90 years later, in 2017, this method of mark...

Are you ready to own 2017?
If you want to hit the ground running in 2017, take some time to sketch out what you want to accomplish this year. And I don't mean doodling some numbers on a legal pad on your lunch hour. Take a day or two off and work on that plan. Do it sooner rather than later. Like, this weekend. Figure out what you want to accomplish. Here's how I'm tackling it.

Solos who truly want to differentiate themselves in the market should consider incorporating design principles into their law practices.

Getting paid is hard work...but it can get easier.
You've had your initial consultation. You've counseled your new client on the services they need, and they are ready to sign the engagement letter. But then you ask for their retainer, and they look at you like you've got three heads.
