Last week’s Biglaw to Yourlaw Teleseminar was a great success, but folks still continue to download the free e-book.  I had hoped to make a tape of the call available, but somehow managed to botch the recording.  Since I need to re-tape anyway, I’m going to do a second round of the call – this time on THURSDAY, JANUARY 8 at 3 pm EST.

If you have ALREADY downloaded the e-book or previously registered for the call, you will automatically receive the dial-in information via email to be sent tomorrow.  If you have not downloaded the e-book or registered, please do so here.

In another sign of the times, my book, Solo by Choice is sold out on both Amazon and Barnes and Noble.  The books are currently being restocked, but in the interim, you can get a copy directly from my publisher at Lawyer Avenue.com.

    Carolyn – enjoyed the call yesterday. I am about to make my second venture into pure solo practice, and I’ve enjoyed your site and learned a lot from it. I might make two suggesions for further emphasis on calls like yesterday’s – maybe these points are fleshed out in your book.
    * If you are keeping your BigLaw area of expertise, compete on price only a little bit; you are still providing the same product, but any big price chop will often be taken as a sign of lower quality. And any price advantage for the same experience is a competitive advantage.
    * Especially if you are staying with your BigLaw area of expertise, you have more flexibility than most big firms to experiment with alternative fee arrangements, and you should take advantage of that. I think that goes hand in hand with your “unbundling” discussion.
    Of course, you may not have said these things b/c you don’t agree with them.
    Thanks for all you do. I agree this is a great time for folks to take the plunge; I am going around quoting you that no security beats false security. All you ever have is who you know and what you know, and so you might as well put that to work for yourself.
