Great insights

For anyone starting a solo law practice this is a must listen to podcast. The insights are great. Very practical information for a new solo.

A practical must listen

I recently opened my own law firm and I cannot begin to thank the New Solo podcast enough!! While I knew litigation, I was not up to date on the business side of law. This podcast expedited my investigation in this regard and gave me the confidence to move forward on my way. Quite frankly, I highly doubt I ever would have followed my dream without New Solo!
