Today, we welcome back Mark Rockwell to The Law Entrepreneur. What Mark does is help solo and small, firm practitioners. Now he's an attorney by trade, but most of his adult life in business and I think that gives him a little different insight into challenges faced by solo and small firms. Because of that, he brings a different approach to coaching those law practitioners. We have a great conversation today about time tracking, charging what you're worth, and creating an open and honest environment with both your clients and those working in your law firm. Listen in for some great takeaways to help you run a more successful firm today. In this episode, Neil and Mark discuss:Challenges solo and small firm law firms face. Setting out expectations and scope of work with your client. Keeping on top of your accounts receivable and your time. Tracking time, managing distractions, and avoiding incorrect time reporting. Key Takeaways:Nobody wants to gouge their clients, but if the client understands the value that is created and the work that is involved, they will be more willing to pay you for what you are worth. If you let your AR go too far, you will go from a big, well-paying client to a pro bono client very quickly. Interruptions are destructive to billable time and will be fatal financially. If you do not bill the number of hours in a day that you expected and planned for, you need to understand where that time is going and what activities are pulling you away from that time. Without knowing what those habits and problems are, there will be no change. "At the end of the day, when lawyers aren't billing enough, it's a lack of confidence. I believe that in billing and capturing all your time, you have to be confident that you are creating value, the total number of hours that you're going to have billed against this project is going to be met with the acceptance of the client, and they're going to be willing to pay the bill. That is why it goes back to that upfront conversation of managing expectations and understanding the value that is being created." — Mark RockwellGet in touch with Mark Rockwell:Website: https://coachrockwell.com/ Email: Mark@coachrockwell.com LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/coachrockwell Listen to Episode 277 with Mark Rockwell here: https://thelawentrepreneur.com/episodes/277-law-is-not-just-a-profession-its-a-business-with-mark-rockwell/ Thank you to our sponsors!Ruby Receptionist - Virtual receptionist & live call services that will help you grow your office (and save money), one call at a time - to learn more, go to https://get.ruby.com/TLE or call 844.311.7829The Net Profit CFO - Ryan Kimler works with attorneys who want to enjoy higher net profits without working longer or harder.

In today's episode, Sarah talks about how people look at those who leave law firms. The views tend to be distorted, especially from others who work at the firm. This comes up often in Sarah's conversations with former lawyers and people who are still currently working in law, so today, she's diving in a bit deeper. See show notes at formerlawyer.com/184
Soul Roadmap with Dina Cataldo - Tools & Strategies to Design Your Life with Intention
This is going to be a fun episode. I'm a total marketing geek, and I loved learning about marketing while I was starting to grow my business. A lot of lawyers I work with own their own practices or are partners who get their time under control, and then they want to focus on building their practice. Where are you with this right now? Maybe you're thinking about using content to build your business too. Or maybe you're already seeing it, but you're not seeing the results you'd hoped for. You might even have tried it in the past but have up because you thought it took too much time with too little return. Wherever you are in this process, this episode is for you. One of the first thing to keep in mind is that content is about service. It's a long game. You serve without expectation. That doesn't mean that you don't invite people to a consult. It means putting in the work for months and being willing to not see results. In this episode you'll learn: -- What content is (you may be surprised) -- Why publishing regular content helps you AND your potential clients -- The mindset you need BEFORE you publish any content. Mindset is essential and is the foundation you want to build your content on. So we're going to spend some time here. I'm also going to give you questions to get you started thinking about content to create for your potential clients. Listen to this episode of Be a Better Lawyer Podcast to begin using content to build your law practice and get inspiration to begin serving your people at a higher level.

This week on Maximum Mom, your host Elise Buie is joined by Christine Diorio. Christine is a survivor! After losing her brother to a drug overdose when she was 23, she married her first husband less than a year later. They were both alcoholics, and yet somehow she managed to go to law school and have 2 kids while they were there. After she started work as prosecutor, Christine and her husband went through a very nasty divorce which culminated in her own (and very public!) arrest for DUI and she was forced to resign. Fast forward 13 years later - Christine is sober, in her second marriage with a beautiful blended family, and despite spending the first 5 years after her divorce in and out of court with her ex-husband, today he is also sober and they have a solid and friendly co-parenting relationship. After Christine's DUI, she became a public defender. As she worked on her own sobriety - advocating for other addicts in jail was deeply fulfilling but also left her burnt out, so when she became pregnant with her youngest daughter, she went on maternity leave and took a much needed break from the law. When Christine's daughter entered kindergarten, she knew it was time to return to work but she still wanted the flexibility to be home with her 3 kids. So, the Law Office of Christine Diorio was born smack dab in the middle of the pandemic! I practice primarily family law (mostly divorce) and some criminal defense (mostly DUI's). She truly feels called to help others through the things she has had to overcome, to hopefully inspire them and provide some light and hope. Christine's tagline is "where justice has a heart" because she believes the justice system needs more compassion. She just celebrated 2 years since opening her firms doors in Tampa, Florida. She has 3 staff members and they are totally virtual. They are growing by leaps and bounds and Chirstine believes it is because of the compassion she brings along with the focus to help her clients stay out of court wherever possible. She believes nothing about the divorce process should become so nasty, that you are unable to be co-parents when it is over, and too many attorneys contribute to this dynamic! By being open with her clients about her own journey, Christine is able to meet them where they are. 02:14 Christine's story of resilience and grit, sharing her personal and professional journey. Including her struggles with substance abuse, divorce, and career changes.11:31 Starting a virtual law firm16:41 Importance of peace in divorce, for the sake of the children and one's own well-being21:48 Collaborative law and the challenges of its high cost27:36 Hiring and empowering a team and the importance of prioritizing family36:18 Resilience in challenges of law practice and overcoming them49:14 Parental alienation and family law system54:05 Substance abuse in law schoolConnect with Christine: Website Blog Client
My guest today is Corey Kupfer. Corey is an attorney that deals with mostly high-level business law, mergers, acquisitions, deal-making, and all that good stuff. But he's also a highly sought-after and well-recognized content creator in the area of deal-making, has authored a book, and is the host of the very popular DealQuest Podcast. We have a broad discussion today about how he entered the practice of law, how he built his business, and about one of his passion projects - bringing diversity into the legal, entrepreneurial, and business development spaces. To Corey, diversity is more than just a buzzword, it is something that he lives fully and completely every day. I hope you enjoy it. In this episode, Neil and Corey discuss:Looking at negotiations as the start of a relationship. AI in the legal industry. Creating authority with content and authority marketing. Living authentically and the business case for diversity. Key Takeaways:There are always deals that are happening, they are just going to be different during a recession or other hard times. It takes a conscious effort and plan to expose yourself to different groups, get comfortable in circles not of your own, and to put yourself out there. You will make mistakes. Continue to learn, continue to grow, and learn to apologize when you are in the wrong. If you are writing a book, make sure you aren't writing an article with 150 extra pages. Write your book with the intention of sharing the information you don't want to take with you to the grave that can help better serve your audience. "It takes more than an openness, it takes a conscious effort and plan to get yourself out there and expose yourself more to different groups, learn cultures, get comfortable, and build trust. The best way that we grow our businesses is that we build trust and more and more people who feel comfortable with us will give us business in return." — Corey KupferGet in touch with Corey Kupfer:Website: https://www.coreykupfer.com/ Website: https://www.kupferlaw.com/ Book: https://www.coreykupfer.com/the-book DealQuest Podcast: https://www.coreykupfer.com/podcast Twitter: https://twitter.com/coreykupfer Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/CoreyKupfer/ LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/coreykupfer/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/coreykupfer/ Thank you to our sponsors!Ruby Receptionist - Virtual receptionist & live call services that will help you grow your office (and save money), one call at a time - to learn more, go to https://get.ruby.com/TLE or call 844.311.7829The Net Profit CFO - Ryan Kimler works with attorneys who want to enjoy higher net profits without working longer or...
In this podcast episode, Sarah responds to a listener's email about a recent episode where the discussion was about law firms and the narcissists that often run them. The listener wanted an additional discussion on the podcast about the bullying and abuse that goes on in law firms. Sarah spent a decade moving through different sections of the law, plus the recent work on Former Lawyer with many stories from other current and former lawyers. If anyone is going through this situation, it's horrible and confusing. It's hard even to understand what is happening at the moment. Much of the abuse involves lawyers being told their work isn't good enough, but not in a constructive criticism way. There's a difference between giving someone feedback in a way that they can take it and it can be useful, and then there is just being a jerk. Managing people requires skills, especially when it comes to giving feedback. See show notes at formerlawyer.com/182

In this 200th episode of The Geek in Review, talk with Toby Brown, CEO and founder of DV8 Legal Strategies, and Nita Sanger, Director of Digital Advisory Services at Cherry Bekaert. There are three rules for growth and success when it comes to large law firms. Strategy, strategy, and strategy. Brown emphasizes the need for law firms to develop strategies that prioritize clients and build meaningful relationships. He argues that "firms should start thinking of clients as customers and using customer experience as a way to differentiate themselves." Sanger shares this view, adding that law firms should "focus on value creation, continuous improvement, and customer experience" as they grow and evolve. Both guests discuss how law firms can reframe their view of growth, moving away from a talent management perspective and toward a mergers and acquisitions approach. Brown highlights his experience at a prior law firm, where he transformed the lateral partner program into a strategic acquisition initiative. He explains, "this is straight up M&A. So I renamed the program the lateral partner acquisition and integration program. And we treated it much like Apple or Google or any of them would treat their acquisitions." Sanger and Brown also touch on the importance of integrating newly acquired practices or firms into the existing business. Sanger emphasizes the need for planning and a program management office to ensure a smooth transition, while Brown shares his success with where hist firm had one of the highest lateral retention rates in the market due to the strategic approach and focus on integration. Looking into the future, Sanger envisions law firms as technology-enabled platforms, providing a wider range of services, while Brown expresses concerns about the reluctance of law departments and law firms to prioritize standardized business processes over the individual preferences of frontline lawyers. Despite their differing perspectives on the future, both agree that a focus on strategy, client experience, and growth through mergers and acquisitions will be crucial for the success of law firms moving forward.

After law school, choosing a legal specialization may feel like it's putting you on a linear career path that you can follow all the way to retirement. You set up a practice, begin hiring a team, and it feels like you're on your way to success. Then life happens, and your plans get thrown out the window.In this episode of Wealthy Woman Lawyer®, trademark attorney and business growth consultant Joey Vitale joins Davina to discuss the panic attacks that changed his life and career. Initially, he began his career in business law, discovered he hated it, and moved on to trademark law. A battle with severe anxiety pushed him to change the direction of his business yet again, and he outlines the steps he took to create the thriving practice he runs today.Show Highlights: What Joey learned about himself in law school and how a series of panic attacks changed the trajectory of his legal career The trust he had to place in his team to create a stress-free law firm and the mindset shift required to do that Why the hard phases you go through in your business are the good parts The systems Joey put in place to take care of his clients without requiring his involvement in every task Being really good at something in your business means that you should be able to train someone else to master it with systems and processes The five identities of a CEO and his advice for identifying and cultivating leaders in your business How to overcome the hesitance of working with contractors and overseas virtual assistants Follow and Review:We'd love for you to follow us if you haven't yet.

In this episode, Steve Fretzin and Robert Plotkin discuss:How AI can assist a law firm and the benefits of automating those things that can be automated. Best practices for selecting automation and law firm technologies.Common misconceptions about law firm automation. Creating a culture of innovation and continuous improvement. Key Takeaways:No matter how much we automate, there will always be something for humans to do. Not everything can be automated, but those things that can be, can help your law firm run more efficiently. When you use automation to generate content, you must apply the same level of care and review that you would when reviewing content generated by humans.If you haven't used much automation, start with the tool that gives you the most return for the least amount of setup effort. You can automate many things on the business side that don't have anything to do with the document generation or client tasks. This will still save you time and money. "I still think it's true that performing legal analysis, in many ways, cannot be automated. If you were to observe, during the course of your day, what all the tasks are you perform as a lawyer and you break them down into smaller units, many of them don't really require the skill of a lawyer. Those can be automated." — Robert Plotkin Thank you to our Sponsors!LegalEase Marketing: https://legaleasemarketing.com/Moneypenny: https://www.moneypenny.com/us/Practice Panther: https://www.practicepanther.com/ Episode References: Book: The Paradox of Choice by Barry Schwartz - https://www.amazon.com/Paradox-Choice-Why-More-Less/dp/0060005696 About Robert Plotkin: Robert Plotkin is a patent attorney who has been specializing in software and AI patents for over 25 years.

Who's Counting with Cleta Mitchell
Investing your money can be a scary, overwhelming, and confusing process. How do you create an investment plan that will not only support you through your golden years, but also give your children and grandchildren a strong inheritance? These are exactly the questions Rick Ferri has been answering for over thirty years, and some of his answers may surprise you.Rick has worked in a variety of finance roles, from his beginnings as a stockbroker in a large Wall Street firm to running an industry-changing private advisory firm. At its peak, Rick's firm was managing over $1.5 billion in assets and had a revolutionary low rate of just 0.25 percent per year. Today, he offers as-needed financial advice to families looking for the best way to build a more secure future.We sit down with Rick this week to talk about what really goes into making good investment decisions. He explains the machine that drives market fluctuations, the importance of a diversified portfolio, and the simple approach to investing that gives you the best chance at a solid return. Cut through the media hysterics and bad counsel from unethical financial advisors to discover how you can take back control of your money and your future.Key TakeawaysAdvocate for your own interests. Just because someone says they're a fiduciary doesn't necessarily mean they're acting in your best interests. It's best to learn all you can and be proactive in making sure you're getting the best investment setup for you.Good investing is not sexy. It's incredibly difficult for even the most educated financial advisors to outperform the stock market. You have a better chance of success if you invest in a solid, diversified portfolio and give it lots of time to grow.Investing in the stock market is betting on capitalism. As long as we continue to believe capitalism works and that it's going to persist as the global financial system, the stock market is going to continue to grow and thrive.

A major law firm is pushing for a centralised pro bono system, saying too many people cannot afford access to justice. A number of lawyers and legal firms around the country provide legal advice at no cost, but there is no formalised structure for this. Legal aid is government funded for some low income clients, but there has been a steady decline in the number of lawyers registered to provide legal aid, due to low remuneration rates and the administrative burden. Laura Scampion is the Country Managing Partner for the law firm DLA Piper. She says as inflation sticks and recession looms the number of people without the means to pay for legal representation is increasing by the day. She believes it's time for New Zealand to have a centralised pro bono system, similar to that in Australia, to help bridge this gap to justice.

SummaryIn this episode, Zinda Law Group CEO and founder, Jack Zinda, gives you quick tips on what to do when attending your first personal injury mediation.Discussed in this Episode: What is my objective? Who's going to attend mediation? Understand your case's value Preparing your Client for Mediation Be prepared to walk away at the right time What is My Objective?Jack lays out his three reasons for mediation: 1. To gather information 2. To set the defense up to resolve the case 3. To resolve the case. Mediation doesn't necessarily mean resolution, but by having everyone involved in the case in the same room, you can make a lot of progress towards a final result.Who's Going to Attend Mediation?Get in writing who's going to be attending in order to understand what level of authority the various participants have. Reference that lit against local rules to further your understanding of what leverage you may have. Understand Your Case's Value If your case is high value, there are often additional steps needed before beginning a mediation. The defendant may need higher authority to approve a certain amount of money and not communicating those numbers beforehand will only delay a resolution. There are many ways to decide on a value, but once you do, stick to it and be decisive. Preparing Your Client for MediationThe client's role in mediation is to listen and take instruction from you as their lawyer. In order to keep them feeling comfortable and even able to hold a “poker face”, running them through the order of proceedings is important. Always remember that there is no such thing as over-preparing your client. If you feel that your client needs more time or more practice, don't hesitate to offer it.Be Prepared to Walk Away at the Right TimeWalking away is a tool to help facilitate a result. Knowing when the defendant is bluffing or doesn't have the means to fulfill your request can help maintain leverage. Once this has happened the case can resolve in two ways: 1. The mediator's proposal. Where the mediator provides a number that they best believe can resolve the case and 2. Direct contact with the defense willing to reopen negotiations.

In this episode, Steve Fretzin and Ross Albers discuss:Having the courage to run your own firm. The hardest thing about starting and growing your own law firm. Why Ross describes his firm as a personal and professional development company that happens to practice law. The pros and cons of working at a firm versus being on your own. What it takes to run a successful business. Key Takeaways:Having your own book of business can help with the courage to start your own firm. While there is natural-born leadership, it is a skill that can be learned if it isn't a skill that you were born with. You should not go completely alone when you start a solo firm. You should have an accountant to keep track of money, and you should have a coach to help keep you accountable. Owning a business is being a salesperson. Your law firm is a business and you need to be able to acquire new business, acquire top talent, and do all the other things related to business, not just the practice of law. "I think people have a misconception between going out on their own and starting a law firm and going out of their own and creating a glorified job for themselves. And that's two very different things." — Ross Albers Thank you to our Sponsors!Legalese Marketing: https://legaleasemarketing.com/Moneypenny: https://www.moneypenny.com/us/Practice Panther: https://www.practicepanther.com/ Episode References: Book: Hunting in a Farmer's World: Celebrating the Mind of an Entrepreneur by John F.
