Outsourcing the Practice to Focus on Marketing
I outsource the practice of law and focus on the coding. I hire unemployed young lawyers to go to court to handle DUIs and criminal cases for a $100 a court appearance. I refer a lot of other things out, and I keep high value tort cases for myself.
My day is spent at the office advertising/coding, answering the phone for new business, and doing client intakes. Court is a distraction from advertising.
I don’t even know where to start pointing out all the problems with this. It’s like building a law practice in a minefield and inviting your clients over for a daily game of lawn darts. This commenter is either trolling for curmudgeons or the poster boy (or girl) for all of Scott Greenfield’s worst fears about today’s young lawyers.
