Lending Library Number: 140

Small firm lawyers often get caught in the crossfire of practicing law and managing a business all at the same time. Commitments and interests levels may weigh more heavily on defending the freedoms guaranteed in the U.S. Constitution vs. calculating overtime pay for staff. They may be more interested in ensuring our legal system works, but not so interested in developing marketing strategies to attract new business.

Minding Your Own Business approaches these challenges with the philosophy that solo and small firm practitioners are first, business managers, and second, attorneys.

Learn to master the key elements of running a small firm:

  • Management of financial elements to ensure payment from clients
  • Implementation of various marketing strategies to bring in new clients
  • Anticipation of clients' needs to ensure they are well served and satisfied.
