Solo & Small Firm Challenges: Survey Results


Just as our society must find ways of coping with our new economic realities, so too lawyers must look forward and embrace new ways of doing business in order to adapt. Simply cutting costs or making superficial adjustments will not sustain us, and those who do not grab hold of alternatives will not survive the crisis. The ABA Journal’s Legal Rebels project is one significant sign that remaking the legal profession is not just a passing fad.

What are those alternatives? Innovative use of technology and manpower is emerging as the primary path to future success. The use of virtual law management systems, open source research sites, freelance and contract attorneys and virtual assistants offer opportunities to maintain and grow your practice while cutting costs and maintaining your health. Visit the ABA’s Economic Recovery Resources to gain more information on making your way through the revolution.
