A simple fact: A law firm is a business. While that business is the practice of law, which carries with it several other obligations, responsibilities and higher ethical standards, in the end, to make it work, you must think as much as a business person as you do an attorney.

Starting and maintaining a law firm is a tough task. Presumably, we are in business not just to tread water, but to make money. Taking our business to the next level is far from easy. Nor is there a scientific formula that works for everyone. Some attempts work and work well and others simply fail.
