Differentiate yourself! Stand out from your competition! Find a niche practice area! That’s what we all hear as unsolicited advice while starting up a law practice. Easier said than done, right? What is the answer then? What steps should you take as you embark on this big adventure?
The simple answer is, do what you love and everything else will follow. When I joined my current office in 2014, I was the only assistant to the founding attorney, still in law school and in search of my place. I was always intrigued with personal injury, and after my own unfortunate car accidents, I knew that personal injury was my calling. I not only knew what our clients were going through on a deeper level, but I found it rewarding to be their voice and advocate throughout the process.
