Ep. 133 – Lessons from the Attorney Who Wrote the Book On Being a Solo Practitioner – with Carolyn Elefant

If there were a monument for early technology adopters in professional services (and I’m sure that, one day, there will be), Carolyn Elefant’s face would certainly be carved into it. Carolyn writes the longest running blog on solo and small practice, MyShingle.com, is the author of Solo by Choice: How to Be the Lawyer You Always Wanted to Be, and has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to leveraging technology for solo practitioners and small law firms.

About the author, Neil Tyra

All through his legal career, Neil has been a pioneer in the use of leveraging technology to allow for the growth and prosperity of his law firm while providing outstanding client service. Recognition of his expertise and leadership in the legal technology space culminated in his creation of the popular legal podcast “The Law Entrepreneur”.

The podcast addresses the statement “What They Didn’t Teach Us about Running a Business in Law School”. It focuses on what it takes to start and run a solo or small firm law practice. Mostly the podcast includes interviews with successful solos and small firms to learn what they are doing right, what they have done wrong, what they wish they would have done differently. In addition, Neil interviews other entrepreneurs and business owners whose skill sets might be of interest to new law firm owners. Lastly, he loves to have what he calles “gadget folks” - those who have a product or service to sell that might help solo attorneys - on the show.
