On top of everything, I am constantly annoyed by the partners taking the credits from my work. No recognition or whatsoever. In turn, the firm tells us to develop business on our own. When we bring in business, the partners snap the credits as quickly as they can. Funny.

I am an associate attorney for a solo and the only one. We work with individual clients, not corporations. So I started to do intake and client consults and got 6 retainers in 6 weeks. I am eligible for a bonus based on my billables, but I brought in about $10,000 for the firm just due to some sales skills I never knew I had lol. So I asked about fee splitting these sales and the boss said no, it will go to my billables and to a sizable bonus. Still, should I push for fee splitting or let it go?

Ladies & Gentlemen, with one month left in Q2, some will fall short of our numbers. Others will hit them. I can’t speak for all of us here, however, I can speak for myself.

If you have to prospect, if you’re looking for new business, is it worth $1500 to put 95% of your prospecting process on autopilot? If so, let’s chat.
