In these tough economic times, solo and small practitioners are searching for ways of attracting new clients, improving productivity, and raising the bottom line. It takes time to think outside the box and figure out how you might do things differently to achieve better results, and, as a solo or small firm practitioner, you already have a great deal on your plate. What is the solution?
Plan to attend “Solo and Small Firm Power: The Best Things Come in Small Packages” on Friday, March 7 from 9 a.m. – 4:45 p.m. with nationally-recognized guru of small firm and solo practitioners Jim Calloway of Tulsa, Oklahoma. You are probably aware of his blog, “Jim Calloway’s Law Practice Tips”; now, come to learn what the expert has to offer for your practice. The emphasis for the all-day conference is on marketing and technology with topics such as “60 Tips in 60 Minutes” covering marketing, office technology, useful gadgets, internet tips, specialized software applications and more.
Following this segment is “Getting Paid for Your Hard Work” by learning how small firm lawyers can reduce their accounts receivable and improve their cash flow with proven techniques, including learning to recognize in advance the warning signs of clients who can’t or won’t later pay their bills.
“Using Technology to Market Your Law Practice” explains how you can use technology to develop your practice with more and better clients. Jim has spoken on this topic at the last two ABA TECHSHOWs® and brings a wealth of information to this exciting topic from email newsletters to traditional web sites to blogs and RSS newsfeeds.

“Keep ‘em Coming Back for More: The Secrets of Client Satisfaction and Retention” focuses on client satisfaction improvement techniques that will supercharge your practice. As Calloway states, “Satisfied clients are those who return for more services in the future and recommend your firm to their friends and colleagues. Dissatisfied clients bad mouth you to others and sometimes file grievances.”
