A small firm lawyer, Rob Fisher, has taken the helm at the West Virginia Bar as reported in this article. Based on what he has planned for his state, I sure wish they’d find more like him to lead the ABA. According to the article, Fisher plans to focus on small firms and solos and to address lawyer malpractice by devising a mentoring program. He also
wwants to create a handbook on starting a law firm, something I hope that MyShingle can help with. Also on Fisher’s to do list is to create a "lawyer liason" system to elp people find out who does what, encourage small firms to develop succession plans for when they close their practices and consider offering unbundled service.
