The Six Systems Every Law Firm Owner Needs for More Freedom, More Money and More Happy Clients | (CET9TSS) | Thursday, December 10, 2009 | 12:00 p.m. – 1:30 p.m. EST

In this fast-paced presentation, Alexis Martin Neely will guide you through her experience of leaving the big law firm life and starting her own firm with limited financial resources, while she was the breadwinner in her family and had a baby at home with another on the way. She’ll share the trials, tribulations, and rewards of growing her practice from scratch into a million-dollar-a-year law business in just three years and how every solo and small firm and family law practitioner can follow the proven blueprint for success she developed and has now successfully taught to more than 150 other lawyers.

Speaker: Alexis Martin Neely, Family Law Planning Institute, Los Angeles, CA
