So you graduated from law school and took a job with a law firm where you have worked for one, two, five, or ten years. Then one morning you wake up and realize that you no longer want to work for someone else, so you start thinking about hanging out a shingle and starting your own law practice. Do you know where to begin?
This program, taught by Ben Folkman, the Managing Partner of Folkman Law Offices, will walk you through everything you need to know and consider before you go out on your own. From decisions about location and insurance concerns, to the initial financial hurdles you need to clear and developing a client base, Mr. Folkman will cover the legal, practical, and business concerns you may not even have considered - such as whether your significant other will support the ups and downs that come with managing your own practice.
Licensed to practice law in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, New York, & Washington D.C., Ben Folkman opened Folkman Law Offices, P.C. in October of 1998. Ben is highly accessible to clients and prides himself on working diligently to make sure that each and every one of their needs is met.
Ben is a highly experienced litigator. He has been certified by the Supreme Court of New Jersey as a Certified Civil Trial Attorney and by the National Board of Trial Advocacy as a Board Certified Trial Advocate.
Ben’s $100 million verdict was listed by the NJ Law Journal as the largest personal injury verdict for New Jersey in 2009.
Ben was named, by his peers, New Jersey Super Lawyer for the last ten years running and Top Lawyer in SJ Magazine for the last eight.
I have been practicing for 7 years, 3 of which was on my own — and this was definitely an informative discussion on NJ practice.
Extremely practical information - although it's making me reconsider going solo.
