It's tax time. What is your level of confidence that you are reporting accurately? And if the answer is 'not so much' then you are in good company (depends on point of view). See Mr. Rumsfeld's letter to the IRS admitting bewilderment at the tax codes.

Hey BK attorneys, what % of your clients' cases have medical bills as a cause or important factor in their financial situation?

"More than 1 in 4 families were burdened by medical expenses in 2012, 1 in 5 were paying off medical debt, and 9 percent had bills that they could not pay at all, found a Jan. 28 analysis of data from a large CDC survey."

Honored to have been invited by law.com to publish this article on the growing pains and pleasures of growing from a solo practice...

Work Less, Earn More: Take the Risk, Become the Boss

Excerpt: "The first couple of interviews were nightmares. One was magical. I just knew Jessica would be the right person. I told her I could only afford 10 hours a week for a while, but if she stuck around it could possibly turn into a 40-hour-a-week job.

When I didn't have to answer those ridiculous creditor calls, I was free to make money. I still was terrified of overhead. But, until hiring Jessica, I never really thought about the real value of my time. I never considered how important it was for me to spend time doing things that generated revenue as opposed to working on things that did not generate revenue and that I could pay someone else to do."
