Episode Notes

Carolyn Elefant probably does not need much introduction here. MyShingle, which she started in 2002, is one of the longest-running law blogs on the Internet, and serves as a kind of celebration of solo practice. Carolyn has written two books, Solo by Choice and (with Niki Black) Social Media for Lawyers: the Next Frontier.

In today’s podcast, we discuss what you can and should do in advance if you are planning to go solo. Part of advance planning is psychological stuff, like setting a date. Some of it is practical, like building savings and “practicing” for your solo budget, whether to get malpractice insurance, and when to take which steps. And some of the issues are ethical, like what you can do before you leave your current firm. Of course, we also spend some time talking about how to get clients.
