    This review is from: How to Go Directly into Your Own Solo Law Practice and Succeed: Into the New Millennium and Beyond (Hardcover)

    I started with the first edition, and opened my law office April 1985. I followed advice from Singer, made some money first year. Referrals from public defender conflicts of interest or overflow; some work from sending out announcements; writing articles for magazines. Networking was key. By the third year, I was in the black, meaning I was covering expenses and making some money. By fifth year, I was swamped with work, and remained so ever since. Singer’s book was my business plan, adapted for my area of specialization.

    Highly recommend this book to anyone who wants his own solo law firm. One caution. Singer says his book is for solo. He mentions problems when you bring in other lawyers. I tried brining in other lawyers, and found only one good lawyer matched to my work ethic, practice. I returned to solo, and found I was happier. I grossed more money with another lawyer. But I did not make more money. About the same net income solo.

    As a solo, keep in mind, security of “job” or your law practice is “strength in numbers.” Have many clients pay you reasonable fees, and the gross increases fast. Repeat business from some clients, new clients keep coming.

    My motto:

    ITS NOT HOW FAST YOU MAKE IT. ITS HOW LONG YOU LAST.

    Good luck to you!
