Helping You To and Through Starting Your Solo Practice

Also, look for Solo Practice University to be premiered soon.

I am uniquely qualified to consult and coach lawyers on how to start and grow their law practice whether right out of law school or shortly thereafter because that is exactly what I did. I live what I teach and preach.

A law degree gives you freedom to create and design your life while enjoying your career on your own terms. I'm living proof it's not only possible but very doable and I can show you how.

If you've decided to make the commitment to building your own solo legal practice; if you've decided practicing law on your own terms is the only way for you to practice law; if you've decided your personal goals can only be achieved by being in charge of your professional future; if you are absolutely committed to being successful and want to shorten your learning curve to profitability; if you want the proper business and marketing guidance, then we should talk.

I offer a free confidential telephone consultation to discuss your goals and ambitions. It is during this free consultation you and I will decide if I can put you on the fast track to successful entrepreneurship.

A little background:

In 2000, I approached the Acting Dean of Quinnipiac University School of Law in Hamden, Connecticut and said, "let me teach your students how to open their own practice right out of law school." I must have caught him in a weak moment because he gave me the green light. To date, a full 20% of my students have successfully "hung a shingle" right out of law school or shortly thereafter.

As a result of my teaching success, in 2004 The Connecticut Law Tribune recognized my contributions with the "Young Leaders in the Law" award for Education. This honor led to my monthly column in The Connecticut Law Tribune "An Independent Spirit," which gives advice to solos and discusses issues many solos face. I am also the new contributing columnist on issues facing solos for The Complete Lawyer.

And having been so well-received, in August, 2007 I closed the doors to my law office so I could coach and consult lawyers full time.

But the next big adventure is Solo Practice University - the 'practice of law' school - a revolutionary new web-based educational and professional networking community designed for lawyers and law students...opening its doors soon.

I look forward to talking with you.
