This book is dedicated to the young lawyers who are unfulfilled working as associates for other lawyers or who recently graduated from law school with the courage to “hang out a shingle” and start their own law firm. This book provides you with concrete guidance about issues I wish someone had taught me before I started my own law firm.
Share my 35+ years of legal experience and learn tips on starting a law firm in the current legal environment. I especially encourage young lawyers to consider starting a bankruptcy law firm as I did many decades ago.
Some lawyers have the courage to open a solo-practice law firm. Other lawyers start a law firm with one or two other lawyers they know and trust. There is strength in numbers. It is appealing to young lawyers in particular to have a law school classmate or fellow associate nearby for support. Others establish an “affiliation” with an existing firm. Sometimes a lawyer needs another lawyer to brainstorm and bounce ideas around. Either way, a lawyer who starts a law firm must wear two hats: a lawyer hat and a business hat.
