It is a problem that is slow to change course, which is ironic considering a law practice is a business at its core. Even if clients come in droves, how your practice is managed can determine whether it will turn a profit or if it’s doomed to fail.

Some things make sense like being responsible and tracking your time accurately, making it easy for your clients to pay or get in touch with you, and networking with other lawyers and legal professionals. However, there are so many other factors that can contribute to your overall profitability besides the basics that everyone knows.

6 Phrases You’ll Never Hear From Successful Lawyers
Building a successful law firm is no small feat, which is why you won’t hear these phrases from the ones that have already done it. There is a massive drive for most lawyers to always sound intelligent and informed.
