In this episode, Jim and Tyson interview attorney Jason Korner, a criminal defense expert. They will go over his career, his transition from government work to private practice and then going solo and building his firm, his mindset, his client base, marketing, struggles and lessons learnt along the way.
We can talk all day long about legal reputation and skills at trial, but if somebody hears that you are a good lawyer and that your firm is a good firm and they call and that first phone call doesn’t goes well, they are not gonna hire you. (..) Earning their trust and getting them to hire you, starts with the first call.
