What are your New Year’s resolutions?
You don’t really have to choose, because in 2016 you’ll see posts on all these topics and more!
STREAMLINE YOUR PRACTICE IN THE NEW YEAR
We begin the year with a Fresh Start. If you’ve ever felt disorganized or overwhelmed, this post is for you. No habit or office system is written in stone. You can make adjustments, update your practices, or create new procedures. For a kickstart, visit this blog tomorrow.
BETTER CLIENT MANAGEMENT
Recommitting to marketing and client retention begins with understanding how to control and relate to clients. Watch for Turn Over a New Leaf with Better Client Management on January 11.
SHOW ME THE MONEY
Collecting fees is a battle every lawyer fights. In 2016 we’ll revisit fees and fee collection with a look-back to these classics, updated for the new year:
- The 7 Golden Rules of Collection
- Can I Double My Fees if the Client Doesn’t Pay?
- Bartering Legal Services
- Four Sure-Fire Ways to Get Paid
Speaking of money, be sure to stay tuned on January 25th for Do Lawyers Have an Ethical Duty to Replace Hacked Funds? Cyber crime is an ever-growing problem. If you’re hacked and trust funds are taken, are you automatically obliged to make your clients whole?
BETTER TECH FOR EVERYONE
On January 19, we’ll revisit lessons learned at the PLF’s Seamless Client Intake Webinar featuring Lexicata. If you resolved to embrace the cloud or upgrade your tech for 2016, attending this FREE program is a good start. Registration is closing soon, so if you haven’t signed up yet do so before January 6. Visit the PLF Website and select CLE > Upcoming CLE.
Happy New Year!
