One of my favorite bloggers Carolyn Elefant over at the MyShingle.com blog has written a wonderful new book called “Solo by Choice.” I just received a copy of the book last week and look forward to reading it. I did get a chance, however, to skim through the table of contents and various chapters. It is comprehensive!
Here is a list of some of the topics covered.
Solo By Choice has more than 300 pages of solid, practical advice on these topics: Making the Great Escape ... Getting Started ... Setting Up Office ... Selecting Practice Areas ... Handling Clients ... Billing & Fees ... Generating Revenue ... Outsourcing ... Marketing in the Digital Era ... FAQ's on starting a firm from BigLaw, government, law school ... and Part-Time Options for parents.
I highly recommend that anyone considering solo or small firm practice read this book. Carolyn has provided detail beyond any expectations.
