This series, produced in partnership with Lawyerist and led by Stephanie Everett, will show attorneys exactly which expenses are necessary for starting a new law firm - and more importantly, when these expenses are needed. By the end of this series, you will be able to establish your new firm’s expenses, correctly map out future expenses, and use a client profile to address the issue of marketing dollars.
Lawyerist’s core focus is to build the tribe of small-firm lawyers who are building healthy and sustainable law practices for the next 20 years and beyond. Firms in the Lawyerist tribe are built around client-centric services, future-oriented technology, profit-oriented business models, and—like us—have access to justice and inclusion among their core values.
This course is not available for CLE credit.
Stephanie Everett leads the Lawyerist community and Lawyerist Lab. She is the co-author of Lawyerist’s new book The Small Firm Roadmap and is a regular keynote speaker at legal conferences and CLEs.
Stephanie practiced at a big law firm for five years before co-founding her own firm. As the managing partner, Stephanie watched her firm grow from two lawyers to a team of twenty in just seven years.
Her passion for owning and operating a law firm eventually led her to open a consulting practice, where she focused on helping lawyers learn how to run their own firms. From there, working with the State Bar of Georgia, the Georgia Supreme Court, and Georgia’s five law schools, Stephanie designed and launched Lawyers for Equal Justice, an incubator helping newer lawyers start socially conscious law firms.
It has been 20+ years since I put together a firm, and I am looking for more contemporary issues to be considered . When I first entered practice, there was no lawyer advertising of any sort, and nothing more technologically advanced than mechanical typewriters. Things have changed a bit since then.
nice and brief
