Everything a lawyer needs to know to start their own practice. The author started his own law practice right out of law school, and this updated text contains everything he learned along the way.
How to Start a Law Practice focuses on virtually every area of starting a practice that new attorneys should think about. One of the areas of focus in the book is why young attorneys should think about starting their own practice, and why they should do it sooner than later. The book also addresses the myth that a job with a firm guarantees security. Other areas covered include finding an office, different types of offices, getting clients, managing clients, managing money, and dealing with stress. One unique chapter not found in any similar books deals with things law students are not taught in law school and will need to navigate the professional world.
The book is both practical and useful for new attorneys thinking about starting their own practice and young attorneys wanting to learn about professionalism in the legal field.
