Basic Training on How to Start, Grow Solo Practice Returns — Sponsored by the DC Bar

November 7, 2013

Basic Training and Beyond,” a popular, interactive guide for attorneys on how to start and grow their solo or small firm practice, will return in December.

The program, sponsored by the D.C. Bar Practice Management Service Committee, will be offered in two full-day sessions and is free to attend. The first session, on December 11, will discuss what attorneys need to know to get an office up and running in the District of Columbia, focusing on the skills, tools, and rules for starting their own practice.

The second session, on December 18, will cover strategies for growing a law firm, including marketing, problem solving, understanding clients, and using technology. This session also will discuss client issues, case management and time and billing solutions, and thinking tools and productivity.

While the program can be taken in any order, it is recommended that participants attend the sessions sequentially in the same month.

“Basic Training and Beyond” is taught by Daniel M. Mills and Rochelle D. Washington, assistant director and senior staff attorney, respectively, at the D.C. Bar Practice Management Advisory Service. The two faculty members have a combined over 35 years of experience managing a small firm practice.

Both sessions take place from 9:15 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the D.C. Bar Conference Center, 1101 K Street NW, first floor.
