Collaborate with Other Lawyers.

You’re not alone. View other lawyers in the LexLawLawyers network as unofficial “partners” in your professional development. Our motto is “work together while practicing independently.” Collaboration is the key to success for lawyers starting a practice. Avoid re-inventing the wheel on issues. Learn from a network of peers who have already gone through the experience. Talk about marketing strategies, firm mechanics, substantive legal issues, and more. A discussion board is a perfect place to ask questions to fellow attorneys. Work together while practicing independently. Save money and learn from each other.

  • Collaboration.  Collaborate with other lawyers and brainstorm ideas, find solutions, and connect with peers across the nation.
  • Discussion Board Forum.  Don’t re-invent the wheel. Pose a question and wait for suggestions to come flowing in. But it’s a two-way street. Provide suggestions as much as you ask questions.
  • Private Discussions. The discussion forum is for the use of LexLawLawyers members only.  Only members can pose questions and only members can suggest answers.  All questions and answers are located behind a paywall.
  • Novel Issue of Law.  Sometimes a novel legal issue arises that stumps the average lawyer. Reach out to the discussion forum and inquire whether other members have had the same issue.  Learn how other members resolved the novel issue.  Save time on legal research and increase profitability.
  • Client Development.  Share marketing ideas with fellow members across the nation. Did you get a great result from a particular marketing campaign?  If so, share your success with fellow members.  Looking for a new marketing campaign? Learn from other members what worked for them and consider adopting the same marketing campaign to your practice.

Take the Entrepreneur Test

Answer the questions below to determine if you have what it takes to start a law firm. Lawyers who want to start their own firm should answer affirmatively to most of the questions below or should partner with another lawyer who answers affirmatively to most questions.

Invest in your future! Use this incubator to start building your own law firm. You worked hard in college and again in law school. Now it is time to reap the rewards of your intensive legal training. Earn the profits you deserve!  Develop pride in yourself and earn respect from your peers. If you possess a heartfelt desire to build a respected legal career, along with the vision and drive to succeed, then take the entrepreneur test to see if you have what it takes.

Some lawyers have the courage to open a solo-practice law firm. Other lawyers start a law firm with one or two other lawyers they know and trust. There is strength in numbers. It is appealing to young lawyers in particular to have a law school classmate or fellow associate nearby for support. Others establish an “affiliation” with an existing firm. Sometimes a lawyer needs another lawyer to brainstorm and bounce ideas around. Either way, a lawyer who starts a law firm must wear two hats: a lawyer hat and a business hat. This website trains you for both!

You can add the URL of your own personal page to your business card, email signature block, and all marketing materials. Your personal URL would be www.LexLawLawyers.com / directory / lastname-firstname.
  • Professional Email Address. It’s amateurish to use your personal Gmail or university email account for business. Receive a customized email address to project added professionalism. Your email address would be [lastname]@lexlawlawyers.com. Cement yourself as a professional by using a branded email address.
  • Business Cards. Receive customized business cards to distribute to family, friends, referral sources, networking contacts, prospective clients, and of course clients! Cards identify your name, phone number, URL of your personalized web page, and professional email address.
  • Email Signature Block. Use your email signature block as a marketing opportunity. Every email you send should be from your professional email address (see above). The block should provide the URL of your personalized web page, your email address, and your phone number. The email signature block appears on every email you send. Think of it as free marketing!

Client Sales - Close the Deal & Profit.

 

Your marketing campaign worked and prospective clients are calling you. Now what? LexLawLawyers teaches you the skills to become a rainmaker who converts “leads” into “revenue.” Learn how to close the deal and convince prospects that you are the ideal lawyer to solve their legal problems.

  • Become a Rainmaker. Rainmakers understand that generating clients is the most important factor for achieving success. Great legal skill without clients results in failure. Clients pay the rent, keep the electricity on, provide salaries, power computers, and fund marketing.
  • Rainmaking v. Marketing. Successful marketing strategies prompt prospective clients to contact you. But contact is only half way home – and is not the same as generating revenue. Rainmakers close the deal and convert prospects into paying clients.
  • Sell the Sizzle Not the Steak. Learn the techniques rainmakers use to focus your initial consultation on the legal solutions you can provide.  Solutions are the “Sizzle” that must be front and center during the consultation with prospects. The “Steak” is the explanation of how you will achieve the solutions. Leave the “Steak” out of the conversation. This is hard for newly-minted lawyers because they have just spent three years of their lives focusing only on the “Steak.”
  • Prospect’s Mindset. LexLawLawyers will help you understanding the prospect’s mindset, which is critical for selling legal services effectively. The more a rainmaker understand the prospect’s apprehensions, needs, and desires, the easier it is to consummate the engagement.
  • Designing Your Sales Process. Learn how to design your sales process from start to finish. Leave nothing to chance. Study how rainmakers dynamically designed their selling processes.  Understand the six steps to success: need analysis, question probing, need awareness, need solution, trial closing, and need satisfaction.

Law Firm Formation & Mechanics - Fundamentals of Starting a Firm.

 

Lawyering is a business. Like any other business, you have to select the appropriate legal structure. LexLawLawyers helps you make that decision by educating you on the pros and cons of each type of structure. Tax considerations are also discussed. Banking requirements must be followed, virtual leasing arrangements made, and technology needs solved.

  • Legal Structure. Before you begin practicing you must select the appropriate legal structure: sole proprietorship, partnership, limited liability company, and professional corporation. Study the courses to learn the advantages, disadvantages, liability issues, and other factors.
  • Tax Considerations. LexLawLawyers provides course material that helps you understand the tax consequences of each legal structure.
  • Banking Requirements. Take the course on banking requirements and learn the difference between a bank “operating” account and a bank “client trust fund” account.
  • Leasing. Virtual attorneys don’t need a physical office anymore, except for meeting with clients. Study the course that explains how to utilize a “virtual office” provider to use a professional-looking office for client meetings only.  Save money and project professionalism.
  • Technology. Newly-minted lawyers are far more technologically savvy than more-seasoned lawyers. Nonetheless, LexLawLawyers offers a technology course that discusses the following: computer needs (laptop, desktop, iPad, etc.); software needs (Microsoft Office software, remote software, backup software, etc.); peripheral devise needs (printer, scanner, external backup, etc.).
