Rank #1: Ep. 187 - How to Get Paid What You’re Worth & On Time as a Solo or Small Firm Attorney - with Marco Brown

Podcast cover
Read more

Marco Brown is a frequent lecturer on the process of getting paid as attorneys — and, as I’m sure most of you know all too well, getting paid on a timely basis and paid the full value of your services is a huge problem for solo and small firm practitioners.

We also discuss Marco’s transition from an insurance defense attorney to a solo practitioner, and how he was able to grow his firm to a small firm with five attorneys (spoiler: it’s in part because he was able to get paid!).

Rank #4: Ep. 58 - The Secret Behind SEO for Lawyers with Edmund Yan

Podcast cover
Read more

Neil chats with Edmund Yan, a former litigation lawyer who transitioned to estate planning with no book of business. It’s always difficult to start a new practice, especially when you don’t start with any clients, but Yan is thriving. He built a strong referral network and implemented an effective digital marketing strategy, which made him more visible to potential clients… and his colleagues.

Edmund now has a second business in which he helps lawyers and other professionals generate more traffic, leads, and business through digital marketing. In today’s episode, he explains the importance of search engine optimization (SEO) and the secret behind SEO for lawyers.

Edmund also has a special offer for you: you will receive 50% off digital marketing services for the one month by contacting Edmund and mentioning The Law Entrepreneur podcast. You can email him at Edmund (at) YanMedia (dot) com.

Rank #5: Ep. 170 - Relocating & Reinventing Your Life & Career - with Elise Buie

Podcast cover
Read more

Elise Buie had to evacuate and leave her life in New Orleans due to Hurricane Katrina, leading to a winding journey across the country that ultimately landed her in Seattle, Washington, where she now practices family law. She’s had to reinvent herself a number of times through this process but she’s always been able to make it work because, as you’ll hear in this episode, she’s a very personal and personable person, which is also reflected in her firm culture and how she practices law.

We also discuss some of the challenges and difficulties when it comes to getting a new job in this profession, as someone who is a little older (in my case) or already has a large family. A lot of firms want to hire a young, unattached associate who they can keep for 20 years – and that can make finding a job especially difficult if, like Elise or myself, you are forced to relocate or choose to change careers in the middle of your professional journey.

Podcast cover

Jessi Patton and Megan Wakefield are the founders and principles of Juris Diction, a full-service business coaching and marketing company “created for attorneys, by attorneys.” They have a lot of insight into how to grow a law firm and what goes into marketing it, particularly for estate planning and other transactional attorneys – and of course, most of us want to grow in some form or another.

Juris Diction’s marketing strategy focuses on consistently creating high-quality content that establishes a firm’s expertise, providing unique and valuable content to a firm’s ideal clients, and building real relationships with potential clients long before a client agreement is signed.

It’s a refreshing approach and, if you go to the Juris Diction blog, you can see that they are walking the walk and providing a lot of genuine value to attorneys who want to grow their business, for free.

Rank #7: Ep. 125 - From Small Firm Attorney to CEO - with Allison Williams

Podcast cover
Read more

In just three years, Allison Williams grew her matrimonial and child welfare practice from a small firm into a powerhouse in the state of New Jersey, creating a model for similar firms around the country. Now she’s stepping into a new role as The Law Firm Mentor and coaching other solo and small firm attorneys on how they can grow their firms, too.

So Allison isn’t exactly our typical guest here on The Law Entrepreneur, but she’s had a fascinating journey and I think any law entrepreneurs with aspirations to scale up have a lot to learn from her.

All the way back in episode 7, Lynette Whitfield discussed an incubator called Law Entrepreneurs for Action (LEAP) designed to help recent law school graduates go directly into private practice. Well, today, we’re talking to a young solo attorney who got her start in one of these incubator programs: Kate DeNobile.

Kate now has a thriving practice, DeNobile Law, and we talk about how the incubator process helped prepare her for running a solo practice straight out of law school, why she chose to work a side gig while her practice was getting up and running, and the technology she uses to run her practice.

Podcast cover
Read more

Today, we’re discussing an interesting and important subject that I have been ignoring for too long: eDiscovery.

I had sort of willingly ignored this subject because I didn’t fully understand it and didn’t see it’s applicability to my practice areas, but our industry has gotten to the point that we simply can’t keep ignoring the needs and requirements of eDiscovery, especially given some recent changes in professional conduct rules for attorneys.

To teach us more about what eDiscovery is and why being mindful of it is so critical these days, we’re joined by returning guests Brett Burney and Chelsey Lambert, who teamed up create the eDiscovery Buyers Guide. These two have a lot of valuable insight, and they created an extremely helpful resource that all small firm and solo attorneys should definitely take a look at.
