Five years ago, I left my job to start my own law practice. Having always worked for others, I was unsure of all of the issues I needed to consider and steps to take to open my own practice.
Sure, I knew I needed a phone number, a computer and letterhead, but what business entity was best for my practice? What technology did I really need to have in place to successfully serve my clients? How would I create a budget, set my rate, or determine when I could hire staff? It would have been so nice if there was a comprehensive resource I could turn to for answers to my questions. Wasn’t it possible to find a roadmap of the topics I needed to consider when starting a practice?
Five years ago the answer was no, but today, the answer is a resounding yes! Continuing in its support of solo and small firm attorneys, the IndyBar is pleased to launch its newest initiative, Practice Builder, a unique product that helps guide attorneys from start up to success.
Practice Builder is driven by a robust website filled with resources to guide lawyers on everything they need to know about establishing a firm, managing and protecting a practice, and even succession and wellness planning. Night or day, attorneys can access tools such as podcasts, articles, forms, checklists, whitepapers and more to guide them step-by-step with the creation and operation of their legal practice.
In addition, Practice Builder provides one-on-one connections with leading local solo and small firm lawyers and respected partners, helping attorneys build their networks and get support when they need it. Practice Builder even gives attorneys access to exclusive discounts on products and services that will power their firm to success.
Most importantly, Practice Builder is affordable. All of these wonderful resources are available for a monthly fee of $19.99 for IndyBar members or $24.99 for non-members.
If you’re looking to start your own practice, or even take your existing firm to the next level, Practice Builder is just what you need. So take a moment to look at Practice Builder and all it and the IndyBar has to offer. I know a lot of my questions would have been easily answered a few years ago, had I had access to a resource like Practice Builder.
Your IndyBar provides everything needed to achieve success in the practice of law, and we stand committed to helping you accomplish your goals, whether you’re a new lawyer or contemplating retirement.
