Solo Small Firm Section: The Value of Solo and Small Firm Practice: Find Your Niche and Own It!

April 23, 2015 @ 8:30 am - 10:00 am

Presenter:  Davis Senseman, Davis Law Office

Solo and small firm lawyers wear many hats: legal expert, business owner, caregiver, sales person and entrepreneur. This is both the beauty and the burden of solo and small firm practice. In the hustle and bustle of every day, however, it can be hard to view the practice of law as more than just a series of individual client transactions, but instead about relationship building (with clients and others), access to justice and personal fulfillment. It can be even harder to distinguish yourself from those around you and then feel comfortable living in that niche.

Our speaker, Davis Senseman of Davis Law Office has found her niche as the owner of a small law firm, has embraced it and owned it. From offering complete transparency in her client development practices (her law firm posts their pricing online!) to finding unique (and ethical) ways to co-work and collaborate with other business professionals that complement her practice, Davis will share how she has built a successful practice that is also innovative, fulfilling and focused on relationships and service to others. Participants will walk away with a renewed perspective on the value of solo and small firms in the community and strategies for maximizing the potential of their own firms by finding and owning their niche.
