The Un-Billable Hour
Managing your law practice can be challenging. It’s important to bone-up on best practices regarding not only your cases but marketing, time management, attracting clients, and all the things–outside of your client responsibilities–that you need to do. The Un-Billable Hour is a law practice advisory podcast.
The Un-Billable Hour hosts a monthly virtual roundtable conversation where lawyers and legal professionals can discuss issues their practices are facing and receive feedback.
