Lesly Longa Vaillancourt and I started our law careers together as associates in a small D.C. firm, and like myself, she’s since moved to start her own estate planning practice (although I only got as far as Maryland, she made it all the way down to Tampa). So, today, we compare notes on our transition from personal injury litigation to starting an estate planning solo practice, dissecting the good, the bad, and the ugly choices we’ve made along the way.

Over the years, I’ve had a lot of people ask me what my best episode is, or which ones they should go back and listen to, and I never have a great answer for them — but I recently re-read the book Friend of a Friend by David Burkus, and I was reminded of the incredible value of understanding human networks.

 

So, today, we’re going to re-listen to my episode with David Burkus because I think we can all use a little reminder about this incredible resource that’s always available to us — and how we can best take advantage of it to serve our customers.

Stephanie Everett is VP of Community Success over at Lawyerist, responsible for leading the Lawyerist community and Lawyerist Lab, and the co-author of Lawyerist's new book, The Small Firm Roadmap. Don’t let the name of the book fool you, though — it is anything but small. This is a very serious literary work about how to achieve growth and success as a small firm practitioner, and I think it has the potential to become the go-to book for solo attorneys and small firms who want to grow.

 

One of the things I like most about the book is that it tackles the topic from the context of today; it recognizes the major shifts currently happening in society and in the practice of law, offering some guidance in dealing with those changes and reframing them as opportunities.

 

If you want to win a FREE copy of The Small Firm Roadmap, you can record a one- to two-minute video sharing a little bit about yourself and why you think you’d benefit from reading the book and send it to me at neil@thelawentrepreneur.com. We’ll pick one winner and announce them on the show in the future.

Gary Zalarick is the Principal behind The Legal Assistant, a practice management software for U.S. law firms, and a Partner at Sammarro & Zalarick. Gary and his team originally created The Legal Assistant as a way of leveraging technology to solve some of the problems they were experiencing in their firm — all the way back in 2006 — but it’s grown into something much bigger since then.

Whether it’s as a coach and mentor or the founder and creator of the Attorney Master Class, Dustin Cole is dedicated to helping attorneys build more profitable and successful legal businesses.

 

I actually stumbled onto Dustin’s work after reading an article he wrote for Attorney at Work called “10 Rules for Surviving as a Solo or Small Firm Practice.” That piqued my interest (for obvious reasons) and I liked the article a lot, so I asked him to come on the show and expand on those 10 points for all of you.
