A wise lawyer asked his young associate if he knew the two hardest things about practicing law. "No," he replied, "what are they?"
The veteran explained: "First, it's getting new clients. And then, once you've got a new client, figuring out how to avoid them."
Our next session will focus on the first skill. But we'll also talk about how to get clients you actually enjoy working with. So you don't feel like you have to avoid them.
The best clients pay on time, listen to your sage advice, and appreciate your exertions. Those kinds of clients don't actually exist. So we'll talk about finding acceptable alternatives.
Got some great war stories? Bring 'em. Got good advice on how to start a new law practice? We'd love to hear about it.
Oh, and bring a few dollar bills too, and maybe a five spot. We have an offbeat raffle that funds our monthly meeting. One lucky winner wins 50% of the pot, and the rest of the money pays for the event.
Important Side-Note: Andrew Legrand is prohibited from participating, because he's won twice already. And he brazenly gloated both times.
