Best Practice Tips from the Last Ten Years

David Leffler

Yes, it’s true. I’ve been writing this column for ten years. My first column came out in the October/November 2002 edition of GPSolo magazine. That was the same year that the U.S. Congress authorized the Iraq war and created the Department of Homeland Security.

I remember in the early summer of 2002, jennifer j. rose, then editor-in-chief of GPSolo, sent me an e-mail asking if I was interested in writing a column about solo law practice. As I was a lawyer in solo practice, I figured that this would be easy to write about but truly doubted if I could come up with enough material beyond one or two years. Turns out I came up with enough ideas to keep the column going a bit longer than that.
