What if you had total control overyour hours and weekends? What if you didn’t have toanswer to anyone? What if you took control over your future? When you work for someone else, you don’t control your future. Your boss decides how much money you make and how many hours you work. For many, the law is just a job that you do to make ends meet and pay the bills. It’s time to change that It’s not just about work and money. It’s about loving what you do and looking forward to coming to work. It’s about spending time with your family and living a fun life. It’s time you make the rules For the first time, you have in your hands the technical, managerial and entrepreneurial secrets to running a multi-million dollar law firm. Tried and true methods for managing and growing the injury law firm of your dreams is now in your hands—precise methods that, when applied, will slowly but surely grow your law firm into an asset that serves your ideal lifestyle. Who said you have to be a slave to your law practice? IT’S TIME TO BREAK ALL OF THE RULES so you have the one thing that all lawyers should seek: autonomy to live life on your terms. THE POWER OF A SYSTEM Torts, contracts, constitutional law…you got your fill in law school of theoretical concepts that you need to pass the bar exam. But then a funny thing happened, you got out of law school, opened your new law firm and you realized something—no one ever taught you how to run your own law firm in law school. Suddenly, you’re on your own with fancy new letterhead, a few clients and not much else. Your dusty law school books aren’t much help. It’s great to have your book smarts and fancy law degree but how do you pay the bills every Friday when your staff wants their paycheck? You pull your hair out wondering how you got yourself into this mess. This book was written for you. You are not alone. Yes, others have done the same thing before you and believe it or not, there are tried and proven recipes for success. Instead of fumbling around like the other lawyers in your town and just waiting for your phone to ring with your next case, you study the recipe and principles for a big-time injury law firm and little by little you begin implementing systems into your new law firm. You have in your hands tried and proven systems for the injury law firm of your dreams. It’s not just the technical aspects of running your own law firm, but the managerial and entrepreneurial principles that you must have to keep a constant stream of new cases and clients coming down the pipe. And no, these are not law school theoretical concepts but the technical, managerial and entrepreneurial “how to” steps that have been tried and tested over years of trial and error. You won’t find a book like this in your law school library…or anywhere else. Law school’s out—no more time for theoretical concepts—it’s time to get bills paid, move cases to trial, start making money and begin living life on your terms.

A Cup Of Coffee With 10 Of The Top Personal Injury Attorneys In The United States - This book is for anyone who has been seriously injured in an accident. Ten of the top personal injury attorneys in the United States will provide you with valuable insights, guide you through the hazardous steps of filing a claim, and shepherd you around the landmines when dealing with insurance companies. If you are the victim of an accident that was due to the negligence of another person or company, you are entitled to compensation for your injuries. Unfortunately, most people don't realize that insurance companies have no incentive to be fair or to fully compensate you for your injuries. Their unstated goal is to find ways to deny your claim or minimize their liability, and pay you as little as possible. We asked 10 of the best personal injury attorneys to share their insights about what you should know before you settle your claim. I personally believe this is the most powerful and enlightening book ever written on the subject.
