David Burkus is a best-selling author, a sought-after keynote speaker, and an associate professor of leadership and innovation at Oral Roberts University. His newest book, Friend of a Friend, offers leaders a new perspective on how to grow their networks and build key connections – based on the science of human behavior, not just rote networking advice.

 

We discuss the lessons in this new book and how we can put them into practice after taking a break from our normal routine to share how I first came to learn about David: The Super Connector Summit.

Dina Eisenberg founded Outsource Easier three years ago to help lawyers who are overworked and frustrated – and judging by the folks that I know, that’s most of us!

 

You can think of Dina as “the Law Practice Accelerant,” a mentor who teaches the mindset and mechanics of delegation to solo and small firm lawyers who want to scale and design a law practice that fits the life they desire. She doesn’t directly connect attorneys with virtual assistants or outsourcing resources, instead taking a “teach a man to fish” approach to delegation and outsourcing.

Mitchell Greenberg, owner of LawChampion, worked with his family for 24 years before branching out to start his solo practice.

Chelsie Lamie is a personal injury attorney down in Florida, and she has an incredible commitment to the office culture of her firm. The culture Chelsie has crafted may sound antithetical to the way things are usually done, but I think it’s a refreshing new way of doing things and the results speak for themselves.

We have “moonshot” power at our fingertips… but are we employing every nanometer of our gadgets?

 

A man of many hats and originally our guest on episode 26, business lawyer David Sparks, or “MacSparky,” writes all things Apple. Today’s interview explores the tipping point in technology and how to harness our iPhones and other tools to save valuable time.

 

His newest field guide for iPhones exemplifies the gold standard in user guides, app recommendations, and overall authority on putting every bit and byte to use. With over two hours of video instruction and 44 chapters, the iPhone Field Guide undergoes regular updates and encapsulates a vast collection of rich media examples.

 

For non Apple users out there, David also offers “platform agnostic” field guides on going paperless and executing the most memorable presentations.

Gina Rubel is the founder and CEO of Furia Rubel Communications, a company that stands apart by focusing on integrated public relations, media management, and crisis communications. A published author and expert in the field, Gina worked as a trial attorney and judicial law clerk before starting her business in 2002.

Neen James is a leadership and attention expert known for delivering high-energy keynotes presentations that challenge audiences to leverage their focus and pay attention to what matters most at work and in life – and the value of attention is exactly what we’re going to be talking about today.

 

Neen recently wrote a new book, Attention Pays: How to Drive Profitability, Productivity, and Accountability, in which she argues that we live in an attention deficit society and that by having more intentional attention in our actions and relationships with others, we can improve our profitability, productivity, and accountability. Plus, I know that you all will be delighted by her personality, wisdom, and Australian charm.

 

Neen is also generous enough to offer Law Entrepreneur listeners a FREE gift: you can get a sample chapter for Attention Pays and a copy of her 5-Step Attention Challenge by going to thelawentrepreneur.com/neenjames.

Travis Hornsby is the Founder and “Chief Student Loan Consultant” of Student Loan Planner, a company that helps individuals with six figures of student loan debt reduce the amount or make their payments more manageable. They’ve consulted on over $200 million in student debt and found more than $45 million in forecasted student loan savings.

 

Given the fact that so many attorneys are struggling under tremendous amounts of student loan debt, this is a really important and valuable service for those of us choosing to be law entrepreneurs.

Amy Mann is the Marketing & Communications Director for LawPay, what I consider the premiere online credit card processing solution for solo and small law firms. I like to share the services that I personally use – because, well, they work! – and I’ve been using LawPay for many years.

 

We discuss how secure credit card processing can take a lot of the worry out of billing, payment in a world where mobile devices are everywhere, and the surprising number of firms that still don’t accept credit card payments at all.

Diana Stepleton is the VP of Partner Engagement at Ruby Receptionists, a live remote reception service that I’ve been using for years. Whether you are in a virtual setting, a shared setting, or a traditional brick and mortar environment, there are a lot of advantages to outsourcing the receptionist function.

 

We explore how virtual receptionists can be used to make a small or solo firm more efficient, and why a service that always answers your clients’ calls with a real person is so valuable.

Douglas Lusk is the Founder/CEO of the National Society for Legal Technology (NSLT) and the creator of the Legal Technology Certificate. I think he’s on the cusp of something huge, and he hasn’t even graduated law school yet!

 

This legal technology training program addresses a problem that most attorneys struggle with: How do I comply with the new ethical rules requiring competence in technology when there are no resources in my law firm or law school to do so (and without investing in expensive software packages)?

 

Doug figured it out and, after just one year, his program has been included in the curriculum of over 70 law schools. On top of that, he’s talking to bar associations about finally introducing CLE on software instruction – a much-needed improvement. Doug offers an elegant solution to a growing problem, and I’m excited to see how it develops.

Kathleen Hyland is a solo Consumer Protection Attorney based out of Baltimore. We’ve talked to dozens of solo and small firm practitioners on the show, but Kat is actually our first consumer rights advocate. I was excited to talk to Kat because many aspects of this niche practice area are actually pertinent to all solo and small firm practitioners, such as the burden of student loan debt.

 

Kat is also an adjunct professor at the University of Maryland, Francis King Carey School of Law, where she teaches in the Law Practice Management space. Most law schools don’t pay nearly enough attention to this topic, so it’s refreshing to hear how Kat approaches it in her class.

Lee Ferris is a Product Manager at CHL Software, but he’s probably best known in the legal community for creating DocMoto, a high-performance document and email management system designed specifically for organizations running Mac networks. While DocMoto is for Macs, the functionalities and capabilities we discuss in this episode are widely available on Windows networks too, and this conversation is helpful for anyone wondering if they need a document management system in their business.

I honestly wasn’t entirely sure what benefits a robust document management system afforded solo or small law practices, so I invited Lee onto the show to explain them – and I learned a ton!

As a followup to last week’s show (in which we talked to Nakia Gray about using online video as a marketing tool), I invited Victor Medina back on the show to dive deeper into the nuts and bolts of developing video marketing systems within your law firm.

 

If you aren’t familiar with Victor, you’re in for a treat. He is an estate planning & elder law attorney, a financial planner, the person behind MacTrack Legal, an author, and the host of Make it Last Radio. He has a lot of insight to share, and lately he’s been killing it with video content marketing.

We discuss Tiff’s transition from insurance defense to estate planning and elder law (one area of law she never expected to be in),, how she leverages guest bloggers to create more valuable online content, and other strategies she’s used to grow the firm in just a few short years.

Sahmra A. Stevenson is a solo practitioner in the D.C. area who primarily does family law and estate planning (she describes herself as “The Happy Family Law Attorney,” and it’s an apt description). Sahmra also has an impressive commitment to being a virtual practitioner, or building an Office Without Walls – she even branded one part of her business as Wills on Wheels, a mobile estate planning service that will go to the client, wherever they are located.

 

It’s a really interesting way to approach a solo law practice, and I think it’s probably the way this industry is going – Sahmra is just way ahead of the curve.
