Thinking of Going Solo? Be Prepared to Practice Law and Run a Business!

A law practice is a business. No matter how good an attorney you are, your practice will not take off without that recognition.

This article was written for new solo attorneys, those who are thinking of hanging out a shingle, and those who were dismayed when they saw their tax return for the first time after beginning to practice on their own.

When building a business, there are many important considerations that we think ofand some that we don’t. Ensure that your plan is comprehensive (you can do it!).
