From Little Shingles, Big Law Firms Grow

Everyone starts somewhere, law firms included.  Consider this story from Forbes about Jere Beasley, one of the nation’s most successful personal injury lawyer who’s secured multimillion dollar settlements and verdicts against some of the largest corporations in the country.   According to the story, Beasley started a solo practice because he couldn’t find a job.  Today, Beasley’s little law practice that occupied a couple of rooms in an old house fills three buildings, with 44 lawyers and 225 support workers.

I realize that personal injury work isn’t everyone’s cup of tea.  But my point is simply that there are opportunities to grow your law practice beyond just one or two lawyers if that’s what you want to do.
