I Don’t Have to Be a Mind Reader to Know You Got Into This Industry to Make a Difference…

Like you, my career in the legal industry can be distilled down to a few major talking points.

I graduated in 1997 from the Saint Louis University School of Law. I opened my own practice in 2007. I was named the Best Lawyer in St. Louis by the Riverfront Times (twice).

But let’s be honest, these types of highlights don’t even scratch the surface of why we got into law, or what impact our work has on those around us.

In the 15+ years of running my own practice, I’ve dedicated my time and energy to immigration law and helping those less fortunate than myself to become citizens of this great country. I’m passionate about uniting families and protecting rights, and I’ve made it my mission to uphold those values for those who can’t fight for themselves.

Now, having built and implemented systems to improve my own law firm, I confidently manage 30 employees and spend my time helping thousands of individuals obtain their immigration benefits.

That’s how I make my mark as a lawyer and a human. If you’re ready to do the same with your practice, and life, I’m here to help you.

You Say You Want More Cases... But I’m Not Sure I Believe You

That’s right, I’m going straight for the jugular. You say you want more cases.
You tell your staff, your family and yourself that you want more cases.

But is that actually true?

If you’re like most attorneys, there’s something inside of you that secretly DOESN’T want to increase intake. This mental block is because buried deep in the back of your mind, you think more cases means more work for you.

And more work means canceling your weekend plans. Rescheduling time with friends. Missing out on time with family. Slowly forgetting what your partner or kids look like as you become one with your office (a bit extreme, but you know what I mean).

If You Want to Grow Your Firm You Need to BREAK Your Self-Limiting Mindset

With the right systems in place, more cases doesn’t mean more work for you. With the correct processes, team and mindset you can bring on new cases and make more money WITHOUT having to do all the work yourself.

If this all sounds like I’ve sold my soul in return for mind-reading powers, I can assure you I haven’t. But I do know this is how you feel because I felt this way too. Over the past 15+ years I’ve tried, tested, succeeded (and failed) every strategy under the sun.

Now, I can confidently say I know how to build a successful law firm no matter what stage it’s in, and I’m here to help you break your own self-limiting mindset and achieve success too.

I’m Not Here to Teach You How to Become a Better Lawyer...

It’s true I’ve got a few miles under my belt as an attorney (where does the time go?!) but I’m not here to help you up your legal game. I’m here to help you master your business.

Having sat through law school as a student and again as a teacher (shout out to everyone who sat in my Law Practice Management class!) I know first-hand that school doesn’t get you ready for the challenges of running a law firm.

Attracting clients. Marketing yourself. Becoming an expert. Managing people. Recruiting staff. Training staff. Holding onto staff so you don’t end up doing everything yourself (we all know what that can feel like).

These are the skills you DON’T learn in law school. And that’s why they’re the exact skills you do learn as a member of the Maximum Lawyer community. Alongside my friend and colleague Tyson, I’m here to help you smash your goals.

Whether you want more free time, more cases in your pipeline, more cash in your bank account, or more flexibility to step away while your kick-ass seven-figure business runs without you, I’ll show you how.

From Capacity to Capability: Making the Call to Add a Seat on the Bus

The difference between capacity and capability is crucial to knowing when it is time to bring somebody onboard. Capacity is about the numbers. How many people do you have currently and how many tasks are getting completed? Capability is about leveraging the right skills and innovation to grow your business. Focus on hiring someone who will be an asset and will give you the leverage needed to be a better company.
