Opening your own law firm can be the most rewarding and most challenging endeavor you’ll encounter in your career. So why go it alone?
The popular CBA-CLE program is back this year, and learning about the ins and outs of going solo has never been easier!
Our experienced faculty is made up of attorneys and professionals who have either been in your shoes or who have helped attorneys just like you, and they will walk you through the process – from deciding to hang your shingle to actually doing it – with valuable ethics lessons and precautions all along the way.
The keynote presentation, Solo by Choice, will be given by Carolyn Elefant, Esq.. Carolyn has been a resource, an advocate, and an inspiration to lawyers around the country who are either currently solo or considering solo. Her blog, My Shingle, is one of the most popular resources for solo lawyers online and she’s grown it while practicing energy law – as a solo, of course!
Topics of the program will include:
- Setting Up Your Office
- Choice of Entity
- Developing a Business Plan
- Managing Your Malpractice Exposure
- Practice Management
- Bookkeeping, Record Keeping, and Billing
- Trust Account Management
- And a Panel Presentation “From the Trenches” – Let these attorneys tell you what they wish they had known when starting out – benefit from their experience and advice!
Also, back by popular demand is the half-day Saturday session on technology – your first partner in hanging your shingle.
Don’t miss this excellent opportunity to learn not only the fundamentals of going solo, but how to develop your practice into a success!
