Lawyers are professionals, but also business owners who need to be paid in order to stay in business. Somehow that fact gets lost on many solos and small firm lawyers who struggle with pricing, realization (a fancy way to say getting paid) and collections. I have an answer to that!
It was my pleasure to have a robust conversation with Tom Martin, the founder, and managing attorney of Foresight Legal Group, P.C., an ARAG Network Attorney and Chair of the Education Subcommittee for Group Legal Services Association, an ABA-Affiliated organization.
Tom and I got to talk twice. Our pre-podcast conversation was such fun that I knew the live broadcast would be lively, informative as well as entertaining.
I really love to talk about what I see as the future of law and the many opportunities that await entrepreneurial lawyers who are willing to be bold.
One of the topics we covered is one of my biggest pet peeves so I was delighted to give my answer to how to get clients to pay you- one of the top struggles for solos and small firm lawyers according to the 2017 Trend Report.
