What They Didn't Teach Us About Running a Business in Law School

with Neil Tyra

Tyra_LawEntre_Final_Bug-half-2

Do you ever feel like what you learned in law school didn't prepare you for the world of running a law practice? Law school didn't teach us how to start our practices the right way so we could scale them into a thriving business. We didn't learn how to make sure that our businesses would meet our financial goals and provide the type of lifestyle we deserve. After ten years, I was fed up with struggling in my practice and decided to begin a journey to scaling a

successful practice that would actually allow me to finally live the life I've always dreamed of. I invite you to listen in on the conversations I'm having with some of the most successful solo and small firm practitioners  along with leading business entrepreneurs and share how I am implementing what I am learning. All with the goal of helping you take control of your practice, and your life. This is The Law Entrepreneur.

Ep. 166 – Hiring, Onboarding, & Engaging Staff in a Small Law Firm – Molly McGrath

|

Molly McGrath is the CEO and founder of Hiring & Empowering Solutions, a company that takes a very unique approach to answering two of the most critical questions that I hear most frequently from solo and small firm practitioners: How do I go about hiring staff and how do I train my staff to best support my organization?

 

Molly has a unique take on outsourcing that I think will be invaluable to solo and small firm attorneys who want to stay focused on what they do best – like practicing law – but also want their business to run smoothly and efficiently.

Ep. 165 – The Care and Feeding of Social Media for Attorneys – with Megan Zavieh & Erin Gerstenzang

|

Today we’re joined by a familiar face and a new face, Erin Gerstenzang and Megan Zavieh, who recently delivered a fabulous presentation at the ABA techshow titled “Care and Feeding of Social Media: Enhancing Your Presence Online.”

 

So, this episode is about why attorneys should be using social media – because it is an essential tool for communication with clients and potential clients – and how attorneys can do this more effectively and efficiently. We discuss overcoming the reluctance to join social media, how you can make the process of maintaining your online presence easier, the tools that will help you stay on top of using multiple platforms, and the evolving rules covering lawyers’ use of social media.

Ep. 164 – A New Way to Manage Personal Injury Cases – with Gabriela Cubeiro and Darren Fancher

|

Today, I’m sitting down with two of the people behind CASEpeer, a case management tool designed to support personal injury attorneys – and as a reformed personal injury litigator, I was blown away by the demonstration of this product. I don’t have any stake in this company, and I don’t get anything for having them on the show, but I really do believe it will be an absolute game changer in the personal injury space.

 

My guests are Gabriela Cubeiro, Director and co-founder of CASEpeer, and Darren Fancher, CEO of CASEpeer.
