Empowering Lawyers to Start w/ Carolyn Elefant 464
Categories: Podcast

Not only is Carolyn the author of the book Solo by Choice, but she runs the longest-running blog on solo and small law firm practice.

It all began with a website in the early 90s for solo and small firm practitioners. She would go on to focus on legal innovation, woman ownership, and diversity in the legal profession. 

Now, she’s the owner of a national law firm focused on power, pipelines, and property. Carolyn has been quoted in publications like the New York Times, featured in the ABA Journal, and appeared on the Daily Show. Additionally, her book has helped launch thousands of solo and small law firms. 

In this episode, super lawyer Carolyn shares how she got started before the world wide web was what it is today, how her blog has evolved, and how she is helping so many others start their own law firms.
