Practice/Organization Description

Because no one ever went to law school to study sales and marketing, I started Rain BDM – a consulting firm dedicated to helping attorneys and law firms build outstanding client relationships.

I’ve spent more than two decades in the legal industry, gaining experience as a practicing attorney, a top sales executive and sales manager with a leading legal information provider, and now a law firm business development and marketing consultant. My unique skills and philosophies allow me to design and implement custom-tailored strategies for my clients, help law firms hone their professional brands and distinct value propositions, and coach individual attorneys to pursue and win new business while securing long-lasting relationships with existing clients. I have a talent for inventive, big-picture thinking and the ability to connect with firms of all sizes and practices.

I also devote much of my attention to helping my clients make the most of their online marketing opportunities. Websites are the new storefronts for law firms, and I often source agencies and vendors, manage redesign and search engine optimization (SEO) projects, and generate website content. Social media presence is equally important, and I help attorneys to understand and leverage social networking as a part of their broader business development efforts.

I welcome the opportunity to discuss law firm business development and marketing as well as virtually any aspect of the changing legal profession.
