About the Book
Newly revised and completely updated, the fourth edition of this comprehensive guide includes practical information gathered from a wide range of contributors, including successful solo practitioners, law firm consultants, state and local bar practice management advisors, and law school professors. All the contributors share tips and advice that can be easily implemented in your solo or small-firm practice.
This classic ABA book first walks you through a step-by-step analysis of the decision to start a solo practice, including choosing a practice focus. It then provides tools to help you with financial issues including banking and billing; operations issues such as staffing and office location and design decisions; technology for the small law office; and marketing and client relations. What's more, the final section on quality of life issues puts it all into perspective. Whether you're thinking of going solo, new to the solo life, or a seasoned practitioner, Flying Solo provides time-tested answers to real-life questions.
"Bill Gibson offers a blueprint formula for building a successful personal injury practice. Loaded with valuable tips, strategies, ideas and solutions, this book is a 'must-have' for solo practitioners and small personal injury firms. You'll turn to it time and again for Gibson's helpful guidance, as well as for his 'ready-to-use' letters, worksheets and forms. I wish it had been available when I started my practice." -Philip H. Corboy, Corboy & Demetrio Chicago, IL
"Gibson has written a practical, no-nonsense guide with forms for an attorney who wants to build a personal injury practice. The forms alone make the book worth owning and using." -Paul N. Luvera, author, lecturer and past president, Washington State Trial Lawyers Association Seattle, Washington
