For the month of March, I am going to use my Link of the Day feature to highlight legal blogs that I think are interesting and useful. Some may not be directly related to personal injury or Social Security disability law, but all of us who represent injured and disabled people occasionally need help in other areas. Today’s entry in March of the Blogs:
Susan Cartier Liebel is a Northford, Connecticut lawyer and consultant who publishes the Build A Solo Practice blog. Susan consults with “Newly Minted or Well-Seasoned” lawyers, and she is “Dedicated To Helping You Create and Grow Your Legal Practice.”
Susan has been honored for her teaching abilities, and this is how she describes her mission and her qualifications:
It is my personal mission, through education and authorship, to change the way law schools educate their students and the way the legal community receives solos.
I am uniquely qualified to consult lawyers on how to start and grow their law practice whether right out of law school or shortly thereafter because that is exactly what I did. I live what I teach and preach.
I went to law school a decade after graduating from Syracuse University’s Newhouse School of Public Communications with a degree in advertising. In those ten years I earned a living in advertising, promotion, marketing and sales as both an employee and an entrepreneur. In sales, whether starting a new office for a recruiting company or selling planned unit developments, I was always the top salesperson. Why? I believe in what I do and I understand how to first identify and then address the needs of my clients and as well building a network of relationships which is the basis for a truly successful practice.
