In this episode, I talk about creating a virtual community for your law firm. Many individuals have made adaptations to go virtual during the pandemic. This fact proposes various positive benefits for law firm owners. 

 

Virtual communities present how we stay connected as people, although we're not physically working with each other. Many lawyers are interested in the idea of creating virtual law firms. Therefore, it's ess...

In today’s episode, I talk about leaving one's ego at the courthouse. It is an essential topic for law firm owners who desire to expand their business. Many lawyers decide to become solo law firm owners due to the poor management from their previous law firm. 

 

Therefore, I'm excited to share exclusive insight into the difference between being an adversarial lawyer and a managerial role in a law firm. There is a different ...

In this episode, I talk about meetings that matter. Many lawyers are anti-meetings, including my past-self. I wasn't too fond of the idea of having meetings unless they were necessary. I firmly believed that a meeting was a waste of time and productivity. 

However, in the present, I see meetings as opportunities for teams to collaborate, preventing future issues in businesses. It doesn't mean that you will need to have a me...

In this episode, I cover the topic of whether or not some personalities are too fragile to work in a law firm. In other words, I want to help you hire employees with suitable personalities for your organization. After my conversation with a client who raised an issue about a particularly sensitive employee in their law firm, this topic came to me. 

I describe various types of personalities that I often see in a law firm as Employee...

Joey is a trademark attorney, and he’s also known as the brand legitimizer for online entrepreneurs, emerging thought leaders and creators. His approach to systematize a law firm is unique and highly valuable to learn from. He successfully cut down the client work to five hours a month or less.

In this episode, I introduce the guidance on choosing suitable practice management software for law firm owners. Technology affords us privileges, and we want to use it effectively. But many lawyers get so overwhelmed when choosing a practice management software due to their personal preference and a large quantity of available software in the market. They often encounter loss of income, time and frustration.

In this episode, I cover the topic of advancing your law firm through acquiring a partner. Many law firm owners start solo. Their goal is to own their law firm, chart a path, and be the one in control. However, when the business grows to the point where firm owners want to either expand the business by adding a partner or step up a partner. 

Tune in to today’s episode to learn about the reality of partnership and considerations tha...

In today’s episode, I cover the topic of adding a new practice area to your law firm. Covid-19 had various impacts on law firms, both positive and negative. Many legal professions were in retraction. However, many legal firms exploded in growth as a result of the legal ramification of quarantine. So a significant number of lawyers are contemplating seizing upon those opportunities by adding different practice areas, but they simply...

In this episode, I cover the topic of giving free legal advice. I’m sure we all have received the felicitation that we roll our eyes at but somehow feel compelled to address. This request can come in many different forms from various sources. It could be from an old friend who is hardly keeping in touch with you or even from family members. 

We all know the frustration that arises when the question occurs since we are put into a po...

Today’s episode is all about TikTok, one of those social media platforms that have become ever-elusive and popular. A lot of us have been enjoying it, especially since quarantine. However, many lawyers have been asking the question of whether TikTok is the right platform for them. It might seem inappropriate for many of us, who consider ourselves a little bit older, a little bit wiser, maybe even a little bit conservative regarding...

This week, I'm going to talk about a question of what stops people from stepping into the changes that they know they need to make. Many of us don't even try as we are so mired in the notion that we haven't figured out how, that we fear that we're going to start and that we're going to fail. The fear of failure is a genuine human fear. But it also is a fear that is disproportionately found in success-oriented pe...

When I talk about ethics, I am talking about not just the existence of ethics, but the fact that lawyers hide behind their ethics as a means of staying small. We all know who those people are. There are those skeptical lawyers out there with an assumptive belief that other lawyers who are finding success are doing something wrong and inappropriate, rather than ask themselves the hard question of, if it's working for you, could ...

Today we're going to talk about keeping difficult clients. This is probably somewhat outside of the normal thought process, because a lot of people talk about firing the difficult client and keeping your sanity. 

 

I certainly am a proponent of defining what constitutes what you will and won't accept from your clients, but I do think that there is often not enough attention paid to the aspect of keeping difficult clients. T...

On this episode I talk about the undesirable of letting people go. I don’t go into all the logistics of how to let people go, because one of the things that I always recommend is that you need to have an employment lawyer on your team of advisers for your law firm. 

 

Lawyers are not cheap. But here's the thing, even if you just start a relationship with an employment lawyer where they're not on retainer, per say, but they ...

This episode is about one of my favorite topics, which is money. Money is such a wonderful gift that we have that we can create in our businesses. We as business owners don't fully appreciate all that money opens us up to. One of the things that recently spurred me to record this podcast was that I was watching an exchange on Facebook. I was in a Facebook group, and the question was posed, how do you compensate associates? And ...

I know a lot of people have struggled with the idea of growing in a business, not so much because they personally don't want to grow or see the benefits of it, but because they know it's going to cause interpersonal issues either in their romantic relationship or in their friendships. 

 

So I wanted to talk to you about that topic and share some strategies that you can use to have success both professionally and personally....

In this episode we're going to talk about employees. I have seen so much commentary in the Law Firm Mentor Movement about hiring lately and mental blocks to hiring. I think a lot of people develop mental blocks to hiring because of the problems they encounter with employees once they are on board. 

 

So I wanted to give you a framework for thinking about the failure of your employees, the people that you have brought in that ha...

We all want success. We visualize the life that we'll have when we are making enough money and are spending ample amounts of free time, whether it's on a beach or at our kids school or just relaxing. We all have these grandiose thoughts about what success looks like. Then we see people we perceive to be successful who are not living that for themselves. They are working 80 hours a week. They're exhausted. They may have ...

A lot of us have had compelling events in our lives that have caused us to become the people that we are today. Sometimes those stories are replete with positive, exciting, really engaging stories. Other times they are downright scary. Things that we don't like to talk about. There are also aspects of our story that we know could inspire someone, but we're just not ready yet to go full throttle and market our story. Some pe...
