“Eat a Frog” and Other Solo Lawyer Start-up Wisdom

Wouldn't it be nice to make a clean sweep and set up your practice from scratch—applying all your hard-earned wisdom? Great ideas for setting up a new law practice was the focus of the Chicago Bar Association's Law Practice Start Up Boot Camp last week. A dream team of practice management advisors—Catherine Sanders Reach of the CBA, along with Jim Calloway, Natalie Kelly and Reid Trautz—delivered rapid-fire information on the A to Z's of getting up and running. Budgeting and billing, marketing and client service, systems and technology (pfew!), plus much more. For this Friday Five, we're pointing to some of the best bits of wisdom of that day for fine-tuning your practice—whether you are just starting up or you need a productivity boost. (And don't we all?)
