However......once, in preparation for giving a talk on "Building a Law Practice", I made a little illustration. This is the only known work of its kind, created by my very hand.....
1. Getting the business.
2. Doing the work.
3. Managing the finances.
If a law practice (or ANY business) is having "problems", the source is often one (sometimes more than one) of these issues. GM is screwed on all three, and in my view, their Chapter 11 filing is inevitable, but that's another post. Most new law practices are initially challenged with Item #1. I maintain this is easily overcome, and will then present the challenges of #'s 2&3.
Maybe this approach is overly simplistic, but breaking it down to these basics gives you a place to start. It also takes what can appear to be a broad question (How do I start or improve a law practice?), and targets areas for further concentration.
Tomorrow, let's get us some business.....
