I have spent a good deal of my career trying to get lawyers to spend less time with other lawyers and more time with clients and prospects. In many cases, a lawyer’s business development and networking efforts are more effective when spent in industry or business-related organizations than bar association groups. However, there are certainly times when relationships with other lawyers can lead to client development opportunities, especially when those lawyers don’t do what you do. It all… [read post]

Sir Maurice Drake, the judge in charge of the jury list from 1991 to 1995, died on 6 April 2014, aged 91. There was an obituary in the Daily Telegraph on 9 April 2014. After war service in the RAF – as a navigator on night fighters – where he won a DFC, Maurice Drake studied law and joined the Chambers of Quinton Hogg (later Lord Hailsham). He was a successful common law practitioner, doing both criminal and civil work – including some libel.  According to the Daily Telegraph… [read post]

I recently posted on the initial steps after getting a DUI and the decision to hire a DUI attorney. The decision to go to jury trial and which attorney to hire should go hand in hand. Some attorneys never go to trial. Things happen in cases where a previously poor case for trial may evolve into a viable one. For instance, in one case where a young client crashed into two cars at 7:15am in the morning, and was found to be over .25% BAC, the officer made multiple mistakes in both PAS and breath… [read post]

Law firm marketing is a complex and competitive business. And there are many reasons why certain law firms fail to grow or even fail to survive. However, in my working with more than 10,000 attorneys over the years, I’ve come to find that there are essentially 3 main reasons why attorneys fail to grow their practices:
 1.  Lack of time. This is the single biggest complaint we hear. You’re stressed for time. You barely have time to serve your clients, much less market your… [read post]

The Indiana Supreme Court has placed an attorney on probation, after finding that she withdrew unearned funds from her client trust account.  In the Matter of Jennifer L. Graham, an attorney wrote a check to herself from her client trust account in the amount of $1,100, and wrote the words “HELP ME” next to the check number in her account ledger book.  A few days later, she wrote another check in the amount of $550 with the same phrase written in the ledger.  When she… [read post]

Finding federal court records online has always seemed more difficult than it should be!  While Westlaw and LexisNexis provide access to the federal docket sheets that list the filings for each case, the filed documents themselves are not always available.  Instead, a service called “PACER” (an acronym for “Public Access to Court Electronic Records”) became the method of choice for obtaining federal court documents.  PACER is not without its shortcomings: there… [read post]
