Ep 7- Practicing Law Sucks Sometimes



Some days are great! Some days suck!

Owning your own law practice has many days that are wonderful. Being your own boss and reaping the rewards of your successful law practice are worthwhile benefits.

But sometimes, it just sucks. Sometimes, the practice law can be draining. This is why our profession has some of the worst rates of addiction, depression and anxiety. And frankly, I think these statistics are underreported.

This episode is about one of my crappy days and some of the ways I try to break out of the funk.


Ep 5- This Dude Started a Non Profit Out of Law School (w/ MacKenzie Dunham)



When I got out of law school, I wanted to make money. In fact, the student loan people that started chasing me pretty much told me I HAD TO make money.

MacKenzie Dunham, however, decided to start a non-profit that offers affordable legal services to those who do not qualify for legal aid.

In this episode, we discuss his motivation to serve an under-served segment of the community, ways he has kept his costs down, providing efficient legal services, and how they set their legal fees.If you are setting up a family law practice, immigration practice, criminal defense practice, or estate planning practice, the tips shared by MacKenzie are invaluable.

Ep 4- Four Cheap or Free Marketing Ideas



You don’t have to spend hundreds or even thousands of dollars to market your law firm. When it comes to marketing, the idea is that you want to be the first lawyer others think of in a given situation.

This episode is all about finding cheap (or even free) ways to market yourself. I give specific examples on what to say or how to reach out ethically and cheaply.
