Group Mentoring Meeting

Date and time: June 29, 2011 at 12:30 pm
Location: Boston Bar Association: 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA
Event: Group Mentoring Meeting.
Description: The principal purpose of the meeting is to network and to discuss issues common to your practices in an informal, non-judgmental setting, including, as examples, client development, setting fees, dealing with clients, seeking advice. The hope is that this can become a regular event at which we can combine networking and camaraderie with practice tips from me and other experienced lawyers. Because space is limited, I would appreciate it if you could let me know if you plan to attend.

How to Establish Your New Law Practice

The Movement from Theory to Practice: What To Do When Being a Lawyer Gets Real

When you graduate from law school, and your days of book learning are officially over, you're presented with a significant shock to the system. All of a sudden, the fact of your being a 'real lawyer' is officially established. It's natural to have lots of questions, to worry about a number of things and to get stressed out. Oftentimes, it's difficult to find more experienced attorneys to talk to, especially in the prevailing economy, when everybody's working over capacity. And, even if you have mentors, there may be gaps that need filling, since your questions may cover a broad range of concerns.

If you're starting out as an attorney, and need answers to your burning questions, our panels can help you along the way.

Our expert panel covering substantive matters will present answers to common questions new attorneys face, and will take your questions, as well.

Hello all: I'm hosting a free group mentoring session, or just call it a group get together, with lunch provided, to talk and guage the interest in having periodic get togethers to discuss practical issues in the running of a law practice and to facilitate networking opportunities.

Your only responsibility is to let me know if you're coming. If you'd like to see my background and experience, please check my legal website at The website also references several blogs I've posted on law practice topics, including a blog that was posted on the LOMAP website.
