I'm excited to share with you a new service I'm offering to attorneys and other professional service providers, and hope that you will share this information with those you know who are looking to grow their practice or business, despite these difficult times.  


For the first time, the legal industry is not "recession proof".  Billing rates are being challenged more than ever before.  business meeting 3 peopleClients expect results sooner and for less cost.  Competition has increased both in sheer numbers of attorneys, and through the offshoring of legal services and the use of contract attorneys to lower legal costs.   

Legal services are viewed as a commodity these days, much like IT services.  


I view these times as an opportunity to strengthen relationships, both with clients and strategic partners.   People still do business with people they know and trust. But change is necessary.  Old strategies will not work in today's economy.


I've spent 20 years in the legal profession, 14 of it in the practice of law owning my own family law practice and 6 of it in the business of law owning a legal referral practice.  I've worked with a team of trusted colleagues in small law firms, each with their own specialization, who took good care of the clients I referred to them.  

business team 

My brand is solid as Your Legal Resource, because of the relationships I've built, and the good quality services my team of attorneys provide.  I will continue to provide legal referrals to clients in need of legal advice or representation.  However, in response to current times, I've decided to expand my services and be a Legal Resource to attorneys who struggle with the business of law, either because they never had to be a "rainmaker" before, or because they are so busy handling the practice of law. 


I am offering consulting services to attorneys to equip them with the business tools necessary to sustain a viable practice.  I will tailor my services to the needs of each attorney I work with, and will help with any or all of the following needs:


-Identify and develop essential referral partners beyond the legal community;


-Cultivate prospects and long-term client relationships;


-Generate broader awareness of your law firm;


 -Navigate and use networking/social media sites to your advantage;


-Develop contemporary branding, newsletters, and client communication campaigns, through our strategic marketing partners.



If you know an attorney or other professional service provider who could benefit from these or other services to build or grow their practice, please contact me.  Feel free to forward this newsletter to them, using the forward button at the bottom of the page.



All my best,
