Solo Lawyer Meetup Wrap-up (October 20, 2010)

Filed under: Editorials | |

Thanks to everyone for attending the first El Paso Solo Attorney Meetup.


Topics discussed included:

  • What to do with the back room filled with paper files?
  • Using Google Voice / Google Phone in your practice.
  • Balancing working as lawyer with the running your law firm as a business.
  • The state of market for legal services.
  • Ways to position yourself in front of prospective clients.

Personally, I got to share my own recent marketing discovery that has increased my intakes by 30%. However, I am not going to share it here. Not because I want to you to buy an ebook or subscribe to a marketing course — it’s not about that. I want you to attend the meetups.

I want these meet ups to be a chance for lawyers to get together and openly share what’s making a difference in their firms. I want solos to pull together and help each other. This only works in a participatory environment. So, if you want the good stuff, you have to attend.

The next meet up will be on November 10, 2010 (the second Wednesday of the month). All solos are welcome to attend (even of you are not in El Paso County). Mark it on your calendar! I hope to see you there!

    I haven’t thought much about professionals having blogs, being a part of social media. You’ve got a good niche to write for. I only thought professional needed a website to make it easy for people to find them. You’re going beyond that, its good.

      Being found is easy. The problem is that you are found as part of a group. That is, you come up as just another hit on google. If you have worked for it (and a had a share of luck) you come up on the first page. But, even then, the question remains, how do you stand out.

      I have written about this for the Denver bar. I am waiting for them to get around to publishing it. :)
