Seminar: Suddenly Solo--Are You Ready?

Wednesday, May 27, 2009 1-2 pm PT

Free Telephone Seminar

In these uncertain times preparation equals survival. If you have ever considered starting up your own law practice and plan to make the move soon or if you are afraid that a pink slip might be in your future, you won't want to miss this important seminar. Lawyers are not seasoned in the way of layoffs and are typically caught completely off guard and unprepared without a "plan B" when hit with a pink slip or when their firm goes out of business. California law firms are laying off lawyers by the dozens and the hundreds. You will have a better chance of survival if you are prepared.

This seminar is intended for those attorneys out of work through no fault of their own, as well as for those who anticipate that they might soon be handed a pink slip and for those attorneys who simply want to learn what it takes to start their own solo law practice right now. This excellent presentation qualifies for 1-hour continuing legal education in ethics. This seminar will not teach you how to find a job, instead it will focus on what is involved in starting your own solo law practice.

Renowned speaker and author of "How To Start And Build A Law Practice", the all time best selling book of the American Bar Association, Jay Foonberg, has helped more than 300,000 lawyers start their solo and small-firm practices. Mr. Foonberg will discuss:

  • Hoping for the best, prepare for the worst
    • Getting clients
    • Anticipating the information and documents that you will need
  • Carefully considering the Of Counsel position
  • Q & A during the last 10 minutes of the presentation.

Mr. Foonberg encourages you to send your questions ahead of time to connie.voos@ceb.ucla.edu so that he may tailor the discussion to your specific areas of interest.
