Law Practice Tip for the week of March 2, 2015
I have found that lawyer clients are very poor at estimating the time to complete a project. This can be a severe problem, especially in fixed fee cases. Keep time records on fixed fee cases and see how your fees compare to the time actually spent.

“I practiced law in Houston for 25 years as an associate, solo practitioner and law firm partner. I worked in many different law practice areas including (but not limited to) business litigation, business transactional, corporate, probate, domestic relations and personal injury. Because of my own law practice experience and from coaching lawyers working in numerous other practice areas, I understand the day-to-day challenges and demands a lawyer faces.
By 1996 I was complete with my law practice experience and wanted to make a career change. After careful consideration, I decided on coaching fellow attorneys to greater career success. I studied coaching methodology at Coach U, received certification by the International Coach Federation as a Professional Certified Coach and established Coaching For Lawyers in 1997. I have been working with attorneys continuously since then.
Over the years I have helped hundreds of attorneys. Lawyers as diverse as managing partners, junior associates, senior associates, big firm, small firm, national firm, regional firm, solos and in-house, across the United States and in various countries around the world. I have found great satisfaction in seeing my clients succeed.”

It works a lot like a sports coaching situation. If, for example, you want improve your golf score. A golf coach would look at your game and tell you objectively the good and the bad. He would make suggestions, help you brainstorm ideas to improve various problem areas, recommend a practice routine and expect you to follow it. The end result is that you improve your golf game. Coaching for Lawyers works much the same way.
