The lighting on the video was a little dark and hard to see.

Gabrielle S.

Thank you!

Susan R.

Good information for a beginner with many aspects covered. Raised issues I hadn’t thought of, such as pension.

Angie M.

There were a lot of good tips and I like the examples that were given.

Ruth M.

Very helpful and comprehensive information on running an effective law firm. As a female owner of a law firm it was nice to hear the presentation by a fellow female attorney.

Precious B.

it was so nice seeing a first-generation, attorney of color giving this presentation! And also a woman. Love your website and the business tips you gave. A lot of law firm practice videos deal with transactional practice areas, so nice to have a true litigator's perspective. I also got the sense from you that a lot of marketing is outsourced. That was helpful because I feel a little guilty about doing that, but now I see that it makes business sense. Thanks for such a great presentation. I only wish that the lighting was better. Also, more personal stories, please.
