When the Mentee becomes the Mentor...you've become a real lawyer!
Our profession has a long tradition of mentoring young attorneys. After several years of practice, you shift from mentee to mentor rather naturally. I believe in paying it forward, and I've been blessed to mentor some great young lawyers. And I continue to do because....

It's a big problem. It needs fixing!
Today I started thinking hard it would be if the lawyer actually didn’t really like many of his clients. If he (or she) just found them irritating. My point is this. Such feelings are normal in relationships of all types, so irritation is likely to be part of the picture in some attorney-client relationships. But here they are paying you for results. This makes it different. How do you manage the relationship?

If it hasn't happened yet, it will. How you will you handle?
At some point (if not, already) you will get a negative on-line review. How will you handle it?

Value proposition vs Cost proposition. Getting the formula right is the difference between a successful practice and one that goes out of business.
Every time a client makes the decision to retain a lawyer, they weigh the fee against the value of your services. If your fee is too high relative to the (perceived) value they will receive, they are not going to retain you. Therefore, if you don’t have a compelling value proposition, you must reduce your fee in order to get the client to retain you. And no lawyer really wants to do that, right? Because then you are competing based upon fees (...

This is a powerful and information guest lecture with Karen Caffrey on the 'F' word - feelings. As a culture, we reward suppression of feelings. The legal community, as a micro-culture, further rewards suppression of feelings. How is this impacting you, your personal life and your practice?

These are families that experience marriage and custody issues, these are workers that have employment and injury-related issues, and these are entrepreneurs that have business formation needs. In fact, due to language barriers, more trivial matters such as traffic tickets and ordinance violations are areas of...
