5 Tips For Solos To Get Back To Being Productive After Vacation
There may be a little beach sand still stuck between your toes and, even with your generous application of SPF50, your skin is a little sore from getting too much sun on your vacation. For most small firm lawyers, feeling overwhelmed and incapable of getting everything done is a permanent state of being. However, on the Tuesday morning after a long weekend (which for many of us was preceded by a full-on holiday), work anxiety may be particularly acute. Here are 5 tips on how to get back into the swing of things after a vacation.

My Biggest Regrets Since Starting My Law Practice
I was recently asked what I would do differently if I had the chance to start my practice all over again. That is a tough question to answer on the spot, and I have since given it a lot of thought. For the most part, I think things turned out pretty well for me, but there are a few things I regret. One of my biggest regrets was failing to clearly identify my ideal client from the start.
3 Badly Behaved Bosses Frequently Found In Law Firms
Bad managers often rank high among our reasons to leave the firm life for solo law practice. The Deposer, The Aggressive Chihuahua, and Judge Judy may have been contributing factors. A feature article in a back issue of Entrepreneurs Organization’s monthly newsletter titled: Are you a horrible boss? caught my attention. If you have been tasked with the significant responsibility of managing staff, it’s probably something that you think about from time to time (or at least you should).
Confronting The Legal Bully
Overall, the most opposing counsel I have come in contact with has been very professional. We can each zealously represent our clients, yet still treat each other with professional courtesy and respect. However, on more than one occasion I have had to deal with one exception: the legal bully. I have experienced two types of legal bullies in my career; the most obvious one tends to be very rude, abrasive, and overly aggressive. This particular bully made every step of the case difficult and tried to intimidate me at every opportunity.

Are Legal Referrals Becoming The Horse & Buggy Of Legal Marketing?
Ask any lawyer and they will tell you, the best clients come from referrals. This is backed up by science. A study by McKinsey found that “marketing-induced consumer-to-consumer word of mouth generates more than twice the sales of paid advertising.” And of those that were acquired through word-of-mouth had a 37 percent higher retention rate. (Source: Adweek) But the process of cultivating referral relationships can be slow. For most lawyers, there are only so many hours in the day for one-on-one glad-handing.
Why I’m Not Afraid Of The Future Of Law
Lately, I’ve been getting a lot of questions about my thoughts on the future of the legal profession. And unlike many of my colleagues, I’m very excited about it. Some other lawyers fear how technology and changing best practices will affect the industry. I believe that advanced technology and increasing competition will only improve the practice of law. With new technology, we will be able to do more work in less time, and increased competition will force us to provide more value to clients. The three things I think lawyers need to think about when considering the future of law are digital disruption, the commoditization of legal services, and the changes to the competition.
