Up and Running

I finally have things up and running in the new office space in Lebanon. The final piece, internet access, was installed yesterday. Last week was the first week that I was actually open here and seeing clients. I had several, which is encouraging. I think this office will be productive.

I am currently developing a marketing plan. In this month's ABA Journal there was an article that gave tips for marketing a small law firm. I am happy to report that I was already following most of those tips.

Perhaps the biggest marketing item on the agenda is that I am writing a column for the Wilson Post, the newspaper with the highest circulation in Wilson County, Tennessee. That column will focus on legal news that is of interest to the lay person, such as rights under the Federal Fair Debt Collections Practices Act, credit reporting laws, consumer protection laws, landlord/tenant, criminal law and the like. The column should be available online and I will post a link here when it is. The first appearance will be Wednesday, November 7, 2007.

I also have a long list of topics to blog about, compiled during my absence. There have been some interesting developments in lawyer marketing online and I have some cases that pose novel legal questions that make for interesting discussion.

My most major project right now is moving into the house that I leased in Wilson County. That gets accomplished at the end of this month.
