If you have been mulling over the idea of launching a new solo law practice, consider these four benefits of joining the ranks of independent attorneys:
- Be your own boss. When you start your own law firm, you are your own boss. You call the shots. You make the rules. That can be an attractive proposition for new lawyers who usually must work long, hard hours for someone else to get the glory. When you work for yourself, you get all the rewards and benefits of that work.
- Find your own clients. Business development may be scary at first, but it can be rewarding, both financially and personally. You know the quality of your own work, so you can tell people you believe in it because you believe in yourself. Finding new clients doesn’t have to be hard: Use your network of peers, social media and other resources to help you build referrals.
- Set your own hours. As a business owner, you don’t have to work until 7 p.m. every night. You can have a set schedule or a flexible schedule that fits your life as well as your clients’ needs. You can work weekends, if it makes more sense. If you have a family and need time during the week to take care of them, you can schedule your work around those needs.
- Be responsible for your work. When you work for yourself, you are responsible for the work. The buck starts and stops with you and, in turn, you reap the benefits that come with the pride of ownership and responsibility.
