Since 1987, Chris has practiced in the public sector, been an associate in a law firm and been a solo practitioner.
He has worked a practice with no staff and worked a practice with multiple part time and full time employees and contractors. He has made hiring and firing decisions. He has made marketing decisions, media buys, website development decisions, social media development etc.
He gets the struggle that private practice lawyers go through because he has successfully navigated through them. The “wolf at the door” of bills and staff to pay, navigating dealings with The Bar, looking at a calendar with no new business coming in, looking at a calendar with more than you can handle, seeing marketing and advertising strategies that flop and seeing others that thrive beyond one’s wildest expectations. Knowing that every day has to be balanced with the professional duty to clients and the lawyer’s entitlement to be justly compensated for their decades of schooling and experience.
Too many good lawyers have based their fee pricing decisions upon what some other cut-rate or high-volume or newbie lawyer in the same market is doing. Chris has devised strategies to coach good lawyers to get what they deserve.
