One of the things of growing a firm; it’s like raising a kid, it’s like an organic thing; it’s alive.
In this episode Jim and Tyson interview Attorney Mike Campbell and go through the issues of running and growing your own law firm.
Mike Campbell graduated from the University of Missouri in 2011 and after working as an attorney for other lawyers for a couple years, he decided to take the leap and open a solo practice. He runs his own law firm since 2015. http://mikecampbelllaw.com/
Should I hire someone?
Major issue for Mike. As the firm grows, more work needs to be done, and if you want to keep on making a good job with clients and results, you’ll need to eliminate, delegate and/or automate. If your systems are in place, sometimes the only way is staffing, and having people working for you is not easy.
What are we doing well? What should we do better? And what we should stop doing?
