Love this Podcast

The Lawyerist podcast is really helpful because there are in-depth discussions of real-world problems facing solo and small firm lawyers with solutions and things to think about. What I love most about the podcast is that it approaches the profession of being a lawyer from the entrepreneurial business side which is so lacking in most firms (small and large). They also do a good job of curating their sponsors so they are products and services that actually add to building my business (kind of like a Tim Ferris model where I actually appreciate the sponsor messages).

Starting Law School at 57...

I’m a 1L with an hour of windshield time every day. Stumbled across The Lawyerist, and really enjoying it.

After 35 years as a consulting engineer and Chief Technology Officer for a small company that grew from 70 to 250 people over 20 years, the topics that the hosts cover are relevant to any business and they are very well presented.

Listen to your people and your customers.
Leverage technology.
And don’t be afraid of what’s around the corner...it just might be an opportunity!!!

Thanks for being there!

Really helpful

Sam and Aaron are REALLY out to help us lawyers. They don't sugar coat how hard running a law practice can be, but they do provide a wealth of information, reviews of products, and connections to other leaders/resources in supporting fields that guide you to best practices. Podcasters rely on sponsors, but Laywerist doesn't seem to promote their sponsors over competing products so I feel like I can trust their reviews. On their website, they've got charts where providers are compared using objective categories. A ton of free info. Thanks, Lawyerist!
