If you think you can go solo all alone, you’re wrong. Even if you’re the only one on your firm’s payroll, there are countless people who, if the relationships are cultivated, are very important to a solo attorney's success. Solo practitioner Neeti Pawar offers practical tips for the aspiring self-employed attorney, such as best practices for preparing to launch, bookkeeping, insurance, overhead and other specifics related to running your own firm. It’s listening, networking and adding value to the community that distinguishes the successful "solo" practitioner.
