Solo Practitioner Conference
Best Practices – Client Service, Reputation and Management, Social Media, Office Technology, Business Development and Ethics
The 2019 Solo Practitioner Conference is built around the assumption that as a busy lawyer doing client work plus administrative tasks, there is sometimes not enough time for new business development and management. Attend this program and understand how to set up an effective marketing and business development strategy.

Current issues will be addressed in this exciting program including the following agenda topics:
- Appreciating Clients is Ethically Required and Financially Rewarding
- What Technology Do I Really Need?
- Is Time Management a Joke?: Ways Attorneys Can Improve Their Time Management Skills
- Ethical Referrals in Person and Online: A Review of Ethics Opinions on Referrals
