Today we’re going to learn about a novel (but common-sense) business strategy that Ross Albers implemented to grow his solo practice into a successful small firm: the early use of a business coach. Many lawyers don’t consider hiring a coach until late in their careers, but Ross shares how it helped him improve in every facet of business ownership (and why he wishes he’d hired someone even earlier).

We also look towards the future, and consider the role video may play in attorney-client communication.

Spencer Hecht scaled a solo practice into a small boutique family law firm, with three associates and a handful of other staff members. We dig deep into when Spencer knew it was time to hire his first associate, how he finds employees who are a good fit, and how he created an incentive program that allows his staff to “put some skin in the game.”

Katie Gutierrez Miller is the Founder and CEO of Assistant Match, one of the very first companies to offer virtual assistants. Assistant Match is unique in the VA space because all of their assistants are educated and based in the United States, and for many professionals that is an important consideration.

We discuss building a remote business, how virtual assistants can support law firms (in many different ways), and when virtual assistants make financial sense. (We didn’t go to law school to do data entry, did we?)

If you want to work with Assistant Match, the first hour is on Katie! Tell them you heard about Assistant Match from the Law Entrepreneur and they’ll take care of you.
