The way we practiced law drastically shifted during the height of the pandemic. Meetings went virtual, and you may have found yourself chatting with clients while sporting your favorite yoga pants (unbeknownst to them, of course!) E-signatures became the norm, and you harnessed the power of organizing files digitally. And while you didn’t go to […]
To many, the solopreneur life is risky. Some believe it’s a lot of smoke and mirrors and others believe it’s only reserved for those born rich.

Even though people continue to highlight unfair wages and ridiculous downtime to spend with our families. Even though there’s the constant frustration of not having the freedom we crave or being […]
One of the main reasons I see my clients question the entrepreneur lifestyle is because they’re worried about how much they have to spend on their business. But like with oh-so many things in life, it’s all about perspective! As an employee, you weren’t responsible for your employer’s business expenses but you were paying for […]
When you decided to start your own solo law firm, you may have had a pretty peachy vision. Quality time and laughs by the pool with the kids, a bank account that just will not stop growing, and all the freedom in the world to live your life on your terms while still having a […]

So, let’s dive right into how to strategically find prospective clients and book engagements. First, we’ll begin with a trip down memory lane. Remember “IRAC” (Issue, Rule, […]
