This guest lecture is a little off the topic of solo practice but I had to speak with this incredible woman because she speaks to why so many women go solo, to create their own culture of one that allows them to work as they need in order to have a life. I have to [...]
As a new lawyer one of the most daunting tasks is setting fees for your services. Many lawyers won’t tell you why they charge what they charge when asked. Every jurisdiction has a different idea of ‘reasonable and customary’. If too many lawyers discuss their fees the bar will sometimes fear antitrust issues. Seriously. Plus, [...]
Ever wonder how a solo can represent like the Big Dogs? We asked Carolyn Elefant, a sole practitioner who is currently working on a potentially precedent setting case which even she admits would not have been possible just seven or eight years ago.

But Jared and [...]
In January of this year while presenting a the Maine Bar Association Mid-Year Meeting, I had the distinct pleasure of meeting Nicole Bradick, the founder and President of Custom Counsel, LLC. What struck me about what Nicole is doing is it represents a 100% win for solos. There is absolutely no downside. Truly, a 100% win for [...]
