Are You Missing Out on Clients Because You Don’t Accept Credit Cards?

By 2017, it is estimated that 95% of non-cash transactions will be paid by credit or debit cards. That leaves just a mere 5% paid through traditional paper check payments.

#OrlandoStrong

Our legal community in Orlando has just started to rally. We are helping with translation services for victims’ families that don’t speak English. We are helping with immigration services for victims’ families that don’t reside in the U.S. We are volunteering pro bono hours in family law and probate (and if anyone should need it, in business law too). More than that, I’ve seen so many of my legal colleagues make personal donations, give blood, go to vigils, and give their time to support the first responders, the victims and their families. We are doing what we can, what we know how to do.

Do you not understand the value of this fee to provide you some financial stability for your practice?

How Creative Can You Get When Financing Law School Tuition Before It Impacts Your Admission To The Bar?

“Meet the law graduate who used SUGAR DADDIES she met online to finance her entire $50,000-a-year education.” This is the headline that made all the rounds last week. It’s provocative and created a lot of conversation. We posted the article on our Facebook page (- join us!) but reserved opinion because we wanted to see what our friends would say. Now it’s our turn.
