In this episode, Alay and Eric discuss: 

  • Putting in the time to learn the craft. 
  • A frictionless approach to the client journey. 
  • Developing functional workflows. 
  • Defining roles and responsibilities with a focus on strengths. 

Key Takeaways: 

  • Use a detailed intake process to weed out the clients that are not right for you. 
  • Take the time in the beginning to build your intake process and run all the scenarios you can think of. It will save you so much time every week. 
  • Running a law firm is still a business. You have to focus on the business side, not just the legal side. 
  • Take the time to put energy and effort into the things that matter most to you – whether that’s learning a new practice area or streamlining your client experience.
