Finding Balance Without Quitting Your Day Job

1.5 hours MCLE Credit

 

Most jobs, legal or otherwise, do not live up to the ideal of the supportive, fulfilling career. Whatever drew you to the law—helping the disenfranchised, fighting for an important cause, working in a specific area of law, or just attaining a lucrative respected career—the realities of the legal market often don’t align with what lawyers hoped to accomplish when they started out. Many attorneys feel lost in jobs where there is little professional support available to help them navigate law practice and advance in the profession as they had hoped. Our panelists will share their experiences building support networks, making manageable changes to their practices, and finding outside activities to achieve greater fulfillment in the law and offer tips for how you might do the same.

This panel discussion will give you a day-in-the-life of solo and small firm attorneys in different practice areas to help you make an informed decision about what type of practice will best suit you.

How to Hang Your Shingle: Getting Paid

1.5 hours MCLE Credit including .5 hours in Legal Ethics

 

Getting a client does not necessarily get you paid. If you want to actually make money from your efforts, you have to clearly set forth what work you are being paid for, how much you are to be paid, when payment is due, and what kind of payment you will accept. This program will teach you how to ethically collect your fees from clients by determining how to charge for your services, creating effective and binding fee agreements, managing your trust account to ensure you pay yourself at the proper time, and accepting payments in methods convenient for your clients.
