8 Part Audio Series for Solo Practitioners, Law Firm Associates or Small Practices

Are you:

  • A solo or small firm lawyer that wants to grow your practice, without spending your last dime on 'marketing?'
  • Overwhelmed with all of the available marketing materials and unsure about where to start?
  • Pressed for time or tired of reading about marketing ideas that are geared toward 'biglaw' attorneys?
  • An associate who wants to build your rainmaking skills?
  • Looking for affordable ways to stand out in the legal community?
  • A great lawyer, but clueless when it comes to marketing?
  • Concerned that you don't have the wherewithal to create a thriving practice?

You don’t have to spend all of your hard-earned money bringing in clients.
There are very effective ways to market and build your practice without breaking the bank. And you don't have to hire someone with an MBA - you'll be able to effectively implement these techniques yourself. In this audio series and the accompanying notes and exercises, you'll learn practical, effective solutions for growing your law practice without spending a boatload of money.

There's lots of information out there about marketing a law practice, but much of it is geared toward the biglaw firms with big marketing budgets. This eight week teleclass series shows you how to make the most of your marketing dollar.

You can find people who will prepare websites, brochures, business cards, etc. for your firm. But all of those marketing materials won’t do any good if you don’t know what to do with them. This program will show you how to use these materials effectively in all of your marketing endeavors. Your materials must be written so that they capture the attention of the clients YOU want - in a way that will have them picking up the phone to call your office for a consultation.

The old rule of thumb is that you get 80% of your work from 20% of your clients. How do you attract more of the '20% clients'? How can you focus on those 20% to ensure that they’re getting the best possible service? Remember – making rain isn’t just about attracting new clients – it’s also about your existing and former clients. This program will teach you how to identify and target the clients that are the best for YOU and your practice.

cd photoIn only 8 audio sessions, you'll have a practical, focused approach to marketing your practice that will save you time and money and reduce frustration and anxiety.

This audio series will give you practical tips for marketing your firm. But more than that, you’ll get information about ways to structure and run your practice so that you not only attract more and better clients, but so that you can make them loyal clients who will refer you business over time, long after your work for them is done.

We guarantee that these tactics will be easy to apply. We'll show you how to capitalize on your strengths and use these techniques as building blocks - you won't have to apply all of them immediately.

The bottom line - when you're done listening to the audios and doing the 'homework' exercises, you'll have more confidence and be able to jump-start your practice.

Allison Shields of Legal Ease Consulting has been a practicing lawyer for over 13 years and the Administrative Partner at a 50 lawyer firm. Her background provides a unique perspective on the challenges faced by law firms and law firm managers in particular.

Allison has been involved with all aspects of management and marketing, and faced many of the same daily challenges lawyers face. She discovered her passion for helping lawyers and law firms create practices they love, while attracting the best clients and providing those clients with exceptional service.

Here's what others had to say about the program:

“The materials were excellent. I would definitely recommend it to other attorneys. I’m already using some of the tactics I learned.”

Brian Mittman, Esq.,
White Plains, New York

“I have really enjoyed listening to both of you. I learned a lot from both of you, and it has caused me to do a lot of thinking about my clients and my practice. Candidly, the class exceeded my expectations about receiving information to "put it all together" to market my practice.

Thank you both for putting together and presenting a great class.”

Mark R. Callender, Esq.
Baton Rouge, Louisiana

“The seminar exceeded my expectations because it contained so much information. Taking the course again is something I think I would do.  There were many levels of marketing that were addressed.

My business has grown tremendously as a result of the marketing seminar.  I was able to increase my rates, fire bad clients or let them move on.  I now have a better evaluating tool for clients and  I have a much better idea of who my ideal client is."

but now I think she's one of the best law practice management 'coaches' around. She really understands how to take the lawyer's skills and let your firm grow in the direction you want it to. She understands the business side of practicing law. She gets to know you and your needs and really helps avoid meltdowns."

“Last January, I thought that spending money on coaches or other investments into my practice was a bad idea, since it meant spending money. This year, I know that the money I spent on ‘How to Grow Your Law Practice on a Shoestring Budget’ was the best investment I made in my practice so far.”
