Last week, my colleague Susan Cartier Liebel posted on why the ABA’s recent decision to slash dues for solos is too little, too late. I agree. While I appreciate the ABA for Solosez (and publishing the upcoming social media book I’ve co-authored with Niki Black), dues cuts or not, I won’t join simply because the ABA spends too much money on political issues that I either don’t agree with or which don’t make a difference to most lawyers.
I don’t have much to add to Susan’s commentary, so instead, I’ll just leave you with these dueling videos: the one by the ABA, and the one that the ABA would put out if it really cared about solo and small firm practice. Enjoy, and let me know what you think in the comments.
