If you own a solo or small law practice, I know how hectic things can get, and how overwhelmed the team can get.
Listen in to my conversation with Back Office Betties owner Emily LaRusch as we talk about things you could do to alleviate the stress of being overwhelmed in your law practice.
Areas we covered:
Support to onboarding new clients
Getting someone to do the tedious tasks like capturing names, phone numbers, case details, etc., can really give you and your team more time to focus on serving the client for their case.
Mistakes that many law practice owners make
♦️ Finding who you want to serve. It’s really OKAY to repel those clients that you don’t want to work with, and only attract those you do.
You can achieve success by attracting the right kind of clients with the right type of cases.
Narrowing down a niche market.
You have to ask yourself some questions and come up with the answers that serve all concerned in the best possible way.
♥️ What’s best for the team?
♥️ What’s best for the client?
♥️ What’s best for the company as a whole?
Scheduling Software Tip
CRMs that have webforms do not require you to be logged in to create an intake. When you hit submit, the information goes directly into the system, creating a new workflow. It’s a no-brainer, and a definite time saver!
What’s holding you back?
When you’re ready to hire outside help, you have to determine whether or not you feel good about bringing on a W2 employee, or are you reluctant?
Would you be better served with a 1099 employee? If so, why?
What kind of alternatives do you have?
Can you afford it now? Why wait?
When you are overwhelmed, and you need to get tasks taken off your plate, or that of your team, then it might be time to find a contractor who could handle specific areas
👍 You could hire someone who just looks after a position, like a full time CFO (Chief Financial Officer) may do.
👍 You could hire virtual receptionists.
👍 You could hire paralegals.
But hire someone if it makes good business sense!
So much food for thought going into a new year, month, or even a new week when you have so much work to do.
