by Barry Seidel

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Overview
Back in 1982 I opened my own law practice right out of school. This arose out of a combination of necessity and the thought that it could be done! This is the story of what I did, and the various business and personal evolutions that followed. In this book I discuss how I marketed and built a practice, what worked and what didn't, and how I kept moving forward despite facing some serious challenges. I wrote this book to help lawyers and law students who are on their own or are considering that path. I hope my story will encourage people to consider entrepreneurial possibilities, to evaluate their career plans, and to pursue viable career options. As you'll see, once you've started it's easy enough to bring in business and keep busy. But of course, there are many more business and life considerations. I hope my story encourages people to discuss such things. I hope my story helps some people make better decisions and take action if they should. Pro-actively or re-actively, everyone will have a career path. Sometimes it's hard to state specific goals, but I hope we can share this one…. WHEN YOU LOOK BACK – HAVE NO REGRETS! To anyone who is considering entrepreneurial options for their career, and to anyone who is considering their current circumstances and their future path, this book is for you.
