“I think it’s all about asking questions. The more questions you can ask of somebody, the quicker you can hone in on what they actually need and whether it’s a service you can actually provide.”—Jamie Whitney

On this week’s podcast, Sam talks with Jamie Whitney about how to make choices about fee-setting when starting a new firm.

Jamie Richards Whitney is the owner of Richards Whitney, P.C., a solo law firm. Jamie began her career at Fulbright & Jaworski, L.L.P. (now Norton Rose Fulbright), an international law firm recognized for its litigation teams. In 2016, Whitney started her own firm. She now works with growing businesses and online businesses to help them plan for the future, resolve disputes, and support expansion. She has served on the State Bar of Texas’ Court Rules Committee since 2009 and also provides volunteer legal services to political asylum seekers.
