What should you keep in mind when just getting started as a lawyer?
The first year of practice can be intimidating. There is a steep learning curve, and we don’t always have the luxury of a collegial atmosphere with the tools and resources that law school provided. As I navigated my first year of practice with a small firm, I learned some tips and tricks that solo practitioners and small firm attorneys use to manage their time and business better. A well-managed practice allows attorneys to focus on the important things, and continue to grow. Below, I have shared some tips that I picked up, and some secrets I learned from those wiser than me. I hope you find them as useful as I did.
