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…

Unfortunately, time’s up on your snooze button, because, it turns out, personal injury lawyers worry about a lot of things.

“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…
We know legal document management isn’t everybody’s favorite thing to talk about. OK, it’s nobody’s favorite thing to talk about. But that doesn’t mean it’s any less crucial for the success of your personal injury law firm. Keeping documents organized and accessible helps increase efficiency in your organization and prevents the kinds of mistakes that can derail a case. Truly cutting-edge solutions go a step further to create alignment between document management and other business…
You may think of client intake as nothing more than an appetizer—a prelude to the main meal: the litigation process—but that idea is half-baked. The truth is no one eats (not your firm and not your clients) without a carefully executed intake process. Think of it in terms of cooking dinner—the intake process is all the steps that happen before you start cooking (e.g., shopping for groceries, prepping the ingredients, pre-heating the oven)…if client intake…
The threats are everywhere, they’re invisible and they’re coming for your most valuable assets. Run for your lives! OK, so it’s not an alien invasion. But the threat of cyber attacks is very real, and unfortunately, guarding against those attacks requires constant vigilance.
