Jim Calloway's tips on going solo

Jim has an excellent blog where he frequently publishes practice tips for new and more experienced lawyers alike.  A recent column of his in the Oklahoma Bar Journal summarizes what he calls the "Seven Deadly Sins of Opening a Solo Practice."  They include:

1. No clients

2. Too much overhead

3. Taking on work you cannot do or support

4. Not paying enough attention to finances and financial reports

5. Failing to focus on technology

6. Failing to focus on limited practice areas

7. Failure to build client-friendly systems (It is all about the clients, after all.)

Check out Jim's full column here.
