Hi all, I have been practicing for 5 years (admitted in NY & NJ) and recently went in house. I just started a side business of writing blog posts for firms or solo practitioners. DM for more info!
Law clerk at small firm in San Diego (5 attorneys - employee ben law (ERISA, etc). Offered a position as an associate, pending admission to bar. Wondering what salary to expect/negotiate for. Thanks!
As everyone shelters in place, small firms need solid copywriting services to keep their websites fresh. I specialize in working with small firms. You worry about your work, I’ll worry about the words
I am starting my own firm next month. I am very excited and I know it will be a struggle, but this is my time and I will do whatever it takes to succeed. (Questions in comments)
Any solo immigration attorneys here? How long did you work for other firms before going solo? Is there every a good time to start a solo practice? (Specifically, in California)
Any billing software recommends? I’ve demo’d most of the usual suspects and found them all deficient
I assume many is you know the importance of an active blog to your firm website for SEO and clients. My company, Legal Verb, offers different packages of monthly legal blog posts. www.legalverb.com
Anyone struggle with not being an equity partner? I find myself frustrated being left out of decision-making, interviewing, etc. I’m the only non-equity partner in my firm, so I have no peer group.
It depends on the field. I immigration $50,000-65,000 is average but you can make much more if you become a solo practitioner.
Hoping to start a salary discussion here. Big law is very different than small law in this respect. Anyone willing to share? Trying to negotiate salary for next year. Am the only non-partner atty here
