332. Building a Thriving Personal Injury Practice with Brian Beckcom

Today, my guest is Brian Beckcom. Brian runs a law firm out of Houston, Texas, which is a very successful personal injury law firm that has been growing for the past 20+ years and has had some really interesting cases. We talk a lot about how you go from the initial small law firm and how you take it to that next level with multiple attorneys, lots of staff, and a well-run business that allows you the opportunity to, as he says, spend as much time away from the office as he does inside the office. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. 

In this episode, Neil and Brian discuss:

  • Brian’s journey to building his own personal injury practice. 
  • The quantum steps from starting a practice to a thriving business. 
  • Productivity, efficiency, and having the right people in the right seats.
  • Ways to write a book (and make it fast and easy!). 


Key Takeaways:

  • Insurance companies pay millions to stop people from suing others so they don’t have to pay, but they are the first to sue for any slight. 
  • Build your firm understanding what you want your life to be like. Build your firm around that.
  • If you want to grow your firm without going insane, you must have the right people around you, in the right seats, and doing the right job. 
  • If you’ve been writing a blog, sending newsletters, or making videos for your business for years, you’ve already got the content for a book, it just needs to be repurposed and reformatted. 


“Don’t think necessarily about what you want your business to look like, think about what you want your life to look like and then the business fits into that piece.” —  Brian Beckcom
