All too often, small law firms find themselves in challenging situations. Being a lawyer is one of the difficult professions out there. What with long hours, strict deadlines, and piles and piles of paperwork, not to mention the highly competitive legal industry. All of these can subject them to ‘trials’ and apparently they have it on their own to ‘defend’ themselves and pull things through.
The drive to be successful can really put pressure on aspiring lawyers who want to expand their budding careers or to make their group a recognize firm in Reston or the whole of Virginia, for that matter.
So what makes up a good law firm? Well, according to Tom Wallerstein in his article from abovethelaw.com
A profession also is characterized by specialized training and/or advanced education. Lawyers receive too much of the latter and not enough of the former, but in any event this barrier to entry is purposeful and important.
What all this means is that running a law practice means operating as a professional. This, in turn, means that to be deemed successful, a law practice should provide personal service to clients within defined ethical bounds. In this regard, being a legal professional is unlike selling widgets. The standards for success are different, and more onerous.
If you feel that your practice is already getting dormant, it’s time to check your judgment and consider seeing the view from the other side, so to speak. How’s moving to a different office location?
