Rick Piereck has quite a few interesting tidbits on his resume: he was in the Army before law school, worked in a few Maryland state attorney offices as a prosecutor, and claims to have listened to every episode of The Law Entrepreneur before opening his own practice.

 

Rick says he used the insights from our wonderful guests over the past 171 episodes as a roadmap to creating his law firm, and I was really interested in hearing about the choices he made based on what he heard and what his practice looks like now. I know that his insights will, in turn, help more aspiring solo attorneys down the road.

Daniel Mayer has a niche practice providing services and resources to healthcare and mental health practitioners, effectively operating as an outside counsel to practitioners in a heavily regulated industry. This is a vital service area that is getting a lot of attention these days, for a number of different reasons (not all of which are good), but Daniel provides a much-needed legal underpinning to assist and support the people on the front lines delivering these services to these communities.

 

We discuss the circuitous route that Daniel took to arrive at this particular practice,  the value – and challenges – of positioning yourself in an underserved or niche space when you are a solo practitioner, and how mental health will actually be relevant to every lawyer, at some point in their career.

Elise Buie had to evacuate and leave her life in New Orleans due to Hurricane Katrina, leading to a winding journey across the country that ultimately landed her in Seattle, Washington, where she now practices family law. She’s had to reinvent herself a number of times through this process but she’s always been able to make it work because, as you’ll hear in this episode, she’s a very personal and personable person, which is also reflected in her firm culture and how she practices law.

 

We also discuss some of the challenges and difficulties when it comes to getting a new job in this profession, as someone who is a little older (in my case) or already has a large family. A lot of firms want to hire a young, unattached associate who they can keep for 20 years – and that can make finding a job especially difficult if, like Elise or myself, you are forced to relocate or choose to change careers in the middle of your professional journey.

There are questions that come up a lot among solo and small-firm practitioners: What do I do if I have a long-term illness? Or, how do I provide a legacy for my firm so that, when I have to or choose to exit the practice of law, what I built can continue, and even provide for my family?

 

To help us answer these questions, we are joined by Sofia Lingos, the managing attorney of  Trident Legal and the Principal of Confidential Counselor Consulting, and Pete Roberts, an independent practice and management consultant and the Principal of Practice Law Advisor. They will teach us about how creating a business continuity plan will help you maintain your business in a continuous fashion in case of a disaster, how you can go about creating an effective succession plan, and how to plan for the interaction between continuity and succession.

Christy Zlatkus has been in family law for about a decade, but she just recently transitioned to a solo practice. She has a really interesting approach to creating an environment and practice that is conducive in the family law space, and it seems to be paying off so far.

 

So, today, Christy shares how she created an office environment that supports the family law practice, why she hired a PhD to help with family conflict resolution and support, and how she is changing the narrative around family law.

 

I also want to take a moment to thank Lawyerist for naming The Law Entrepreneur as one of the 10 Best Legal Podcasts in 2019 – and I want to thank all of you for listening because it couldn’t happen without you! I am so incredibly honored.
