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.

276. Making Document Review Painless with Tiffany Christianson

By cody | July 26, 2021

Tiffany Christianson operates a small firm out of Scottsdale, Arizona focused on business law and estate planning. We hear how she built that practice from the ground up and turned it into the success that it is today. She identified a problem when it came to reviewing large scale and complicated documents with her clients. It led to the creation of a service called DocuPlayer, which integrates a number of technologies to assist attorneys in reviewing complex documents with their clients, while also improving the client experience.
