How many numbers in your cell can you recall on memory alone? It’s probably a lot less than you could ten years ago. That’s because you don’t need to—after all, that’s the reason you own a “smart” phone. And while being able to easily recall your cousin’s friend’s sister’s Twitter handle is nice, it’s a lot more important that you can summon your clients’ contact info on a moment’s notice (and opposing counsels’…and insurance adjusters’…and…
Over the last few years, digital marketing has become an integral part of running a successful personal injury law firm. What is digital marketing, you ask? Google it…just kidding. Digital marketing is basically any marketing you do over the internet (including mobile devices and apps), e.g., this blog post is digital marketing…how meta! See? It’s everywhere! That’s why, over the next few weeks, we’ll introduce you to the different components of digital marketing for personal…
We’re all familiar with the adage: “breakfast is the most important meal of the day.” And while lunch, dinner, and dessert fans may argue otherwise, it doesn’t undermine the fact that what happens at the beginning of something (in this case, the day) often informs what happens during the rest of something.  Think about it—a bad first date can turn you off to an otherwise compatible partner, and a terrible meal at a new restaurant…
In order to attract a “mate”, you might agree you need to do certain things—e.g. dress well, be funny, give thoughtful gifts; but simply knowing the right ingredients for a good partner, doesn’t ensure you’ll attract one of your own.  After all, picking out good gifts, pants, and jokes isn’t easy. Similarly, there are several ways to attract new personal injury clients (e.g., SEO, advertising, glowing reviews), but knowing what you need to do isn’t…
You’ve been there before—a matter comes across your desk and, for whatever reason, it’s not a “fit” for your personal injury law firm.  At that moment, you’re forced with a decision: “Should I take this on?” After all, what’s the alternative: surpass the revenue and give it to one of your personal injury competitors, instead? The answer is two-fold: 1) yes, you should and 2) you’re thinking about things wrong.  Put it this way: say…
Our last blog hit the alarm on the legal practice nightmares that prevent you from getting the shuteye you deserve and demonstrated how you can put those fears to bed. Unfortunately, time’s up on your snooze button, because, it turns out, personal injury lawyers worry about a lot of things. Since you’re already up in the middle of the night, use this time to check out the reasons you’re still awake and our tips for…
“You look tired.” Has a co-worker, friend, relative, or stranger said that to you recently? While that statement could be construed as rude, for most lawyers, the sentiment rings true. While being a personal injury lawyer can be extremely rewarding…it can also be extremely stressful. Being a PI lawyer carries with it a unique set of stakes—clients come to you in a vulnerable state; it’s your job to make sure they don’t stay that way.…
The way most law firm’s think about task management procedures is how many teenagers regard their parents—they don’t realize their importance until they mess up. The difference is, for law firms the consequences are way more damaging—for teens, forgetting to get gas may cause them to be late to a party; but if your team members forget a deadline, you could lose a case, a client, and, even worse, your reputation. That’s why it’s so…

Wouldn’t it be nice if the minute you were hungry, the food you wanted appeared? Take-out from your favorite Italian spot? On the table. Your grandmother’s deviled eggs? In the fridge. A snack for the gym? Here’s a to-go bag. A reservation at that trendy new Mexican place? Right this way. Unfortunately, that’s not how it works: the Mexican place is booked through 2020; your pasta spot takes over an hour to deliver; you forgot…
