So, here is a question for you…

 

Would you agree that law firm owners are some of the most disciplined people in the world?

 

That may be a bold statement but if you think about the number of years it takes to become a qualified lawyer, and to work your way up to such a position, it takes something.

 

With all this discipline, how many of these 5 challenges could they solve?

 

That’s right.

 

All of them.

 

With such discipline, they could all be easily solved by a law firm owner (probably like you) by either studying the challenge, implementing a solution, or hunting around to find the right person to solve the problem.

 

Yet why are all these challenges still holding so many law firm owners back from the financial success they aspire to?

 

It doesn’t have to be that way.

 

I’ll tell you why.

 

After having worked one-on-one with law firm owners for over 10 years, I’ve seen it’s because they are not available to solve each of these challenges.

 

It’s because most are overwhelmed with hitting their billing targets, handling lots of admin, and having to manage their team.

 

Because of this, the law firm owners become the bottlenecks in finding and implementing the solutions to these challenges.

 

The stress and overwhelm I saw my clients face before working with me was heartbreaking.

 

Many were working over 60 hours a week, and often on weekends, as they thought the only way to increase profits was by working longer hours.

 

They felt stuck in their role as a law firm owner because they felt obliged to bill more.

 

This meant they couldn’t go on holiday, they didn’t have time to get fit and healthy, so they had all sorts of health problems, and they didn’t have enough time to spend with

their family.

 

This meant while they were firefighting their demanding workloads, and managing their associates, they were dreaming of getting away from it all. When they finally did get away for a long weekend, they couldn’t stop stressing about work.

 

If any of this sounds familiar, then read on because it doesn’t need to be this way.

Hello Law Firm Owner,

 

The top 5 challenges facing small law firms were published recently on a LexisNexis Bellwether insights page.

 

Here are the challenges and the percentages, of how many of those who participated in the survey voted each as a substantial challenge:

To understand the effectiveness of the content my club members get,

here are three testimonials from clients who have implemented what I’ve shown them:

"Before receiving coaching from Dan I was just getting things "done" but not really accomplishing anything. I felt like I was the hamster on a wheel just endlessly spinning and running.

Apart from improving virtually every area of my life the biggest result I got from Dan’s coaching was selling my business for the sum of money I always wanted, which I had tried to achieve for several years before"


~ Lana Sheppard (Saskatoon, Canada) ~

“I started working with Dan on the verge of burning out and working nearly 100 hours per week with no end in sight.

After working with Dan for 6 months I reduced my usual work week to less than 50 hours while my law firm gained an extra 89.15% profit compared to the same 6 months of the year before.

 

Our returns from working with Dan have been incredible.”

~ Carlos Cruz-Abrams (Managing Partner at CAS LLC) ~

“Within 3 months of working with Dan, I learned how to get the best out of my team while gaining time to recruit new team members, train them and refine all my business operations and going from working over 80 to less than 40 hours per week which was a huge relief.

After 9 months my firm’s profit is larger while I rarely need to do any fee-earning work unless covering leave. Dan is nothing short of a wizard!”

~ Vanessa Challess (Founder & Director at Tiger Law Ltd)

Here's Carlo's journey in text:

BEFORE: When Carlos, the managing partner of a law firm that focused on M&A and corporate law was referred to me he was exhausted.

 

He felt like he had to do everything in his firm and was working over 100 hours per week. He was doing everything he thought necessary to run and grow a law firm while also training the associates, business development, and a lot of fee-earning work directly for his clients.

 

He didn't have any joy in his life because he felt there was never a moment to breathe, to appreciate the business he’d grown. Instead, he felt he had to constantly work harder and for longer hours to try and keep everything under control.

He thought the solution was to hire more people but after hiring many new team members things didn’t get easier, they got worse.

 

He was also receiving over 250 text messages a day from his clients, his staff and the people he was working with asking him a constant barrage of questions by text. 

He knew that working so much wasn't sustainable and that he needed a solution but he didn’t know what that solution was and he didn’t have time to do anything about it.

Case Study

Carlos Cruz-Abrams (Law Firm Senior Managing Partner)

Senior partner at Cruz-Abrams Seigel LLC in 6 months went from exhaustion, from working over 100 to less than 50 hours per week, growing his team with 6 new members, creating time with to be his family and regular skiing while gaining several hundreds of thousands of dollars extra profit (an 89.15% increase) compared to the same 6 months of the year before.

 

Click below to watch the interview and learn how Carlos implemented proven systems, leadership and profitable delegation strategies to achieve these results.

DURING: I was referred to Carlos by one of my past clients and we connected via LinkedIn and then on two Zoom calls.

On a third call, Carlos chose to invest in working with me and said. “I really appreciated talking to you in those initial calls. I didn't feel like you were trying to sell me something and you were very good at helping us digest where we needed to go with things. And we really liked that.” 

 

Initially, I worked with Carlos and another firm partner Jenna to get clear on what their dream targets were three years from that day and then to get clear on what needs to happen in the next year, 90 days and the coming week's most important actions to take to be on track.

 

This included Carlos communicating boundaries about how he chose to be communicated with and setting weekly one-on-one calls with his fee earners to give them the training and support they needed to increase their monthly hours of billing while also requesting that none of them unless necessary contact him outside those one-on-one sessions.

 

Within a week he’d gone from receiving over 250 text messages to less than 10 messages a day which enabled Carlos to have solid blocks of time to focus on what was important.

 

Previously Carlos let his team take advantage of him because he thought that if he simply showed his team that he was too busy they would help and do more but this wasn’t the case. Instead, we worked on improving the effectiveness of his communication and I showed Carlos how to make clear requests, hold his members to account and cut out all communication that didn’t forward him toward his targets.

 

When his team didn’t execute on work and dropped the ball, previously he would just pick it up and do the work himself, or if they did the work poorly he would just fix it and send it on to the client which caused him to become relied upon by his team to keep doing so. Instead, I showed Carlos how to hold his team members to account to fully complete each client's work to a high standard while also maintaining a great company culture.

AFTER: Within four months, Carlos was been able to cut back significantly on the heavy, strategic and business-oriented legal fee-earning work by effectively delegating it away to his existing and some new team members while his firm gradually became much more profitable than it was before. 

 

Carlos said. “I pushed against Dan for a long time. I am the highest billing person in our firm and I bill at the highest rate and the most hours so we're going to lose.” The solution to making his firm more profitable while Carlos carried out less billing work, was to grow his team with more senior lawyers to directly take over the billing work from Carlos.

 

This was done by having new team members dial into Zoom calls with Carlos and his clients until the clients expressed confidence in each new employee’s abilities.

 

After 6 months of participating in one of my programs, Carlos’s firm gained several hundreds of thousands of dollars in extra profit, an 89.15% increase compared to the same 6 months of the year before. See the screenshot below:

As Carlos says. “If you have the right processes, if you have the right team, if you have the right no-fluff communication, you can actually spend more time doing the things you love while successfully building your business and not killing yourself and growing your profit.”

 

He’s also been able to cut back on a lot of lower-level tasks which has enabled Carlos to go from working over 100 to less than 50 hours per week which he says. “This has improved my own life quality, as well as really my ability to respond to clients and to help them and to dive into these sort of heavy, strategic things that they want help with which I also enjoy doing.”

 

In our interview Carlos admitted. “For someone who's watching this, they think there's something about Carlos that allowed him to do that, and it's just not true. There's nothing special about me that allows me to be able to focus on my family life and build a successful business without sacrificing one for the other. It's that there are tools, particularly as lawyers, that were never taught.”

 

The last question I asked Carlos was. “If somebody's on the fence about investing in one of my programmes, what would you say to them?” 

 

Carlos replied. “Do it. I think that what we've seen in returns on it is incredible. And it's not just monetary returns. Our monetary returns have been insane and what we have made in extra profit as compared to what we spent on you is incomparable but the most important part to me is every other aspect of this, spending time with my wife and with my kids.”

"I've earned nearly 50 thousand dollars in less than a month"

"I was working too many hours and not having enough time nor the capacity to create the life that I wanted. A life where I work less and earn more.

You simply can’t put a price on the insight I have gained! Dan quickly made me realise my self-worth and stopped me from undervaluing myself.

As a result of Dan’s coaching I’ve earned nearly 50,000 dollars in less than a month.

In the short time that I’ve had the pleasure of being coached by Dan, I gained the confidence to live the life that I have always dreamed of.

I’ll be forever grateful."

 

~ Dan Kayser (Honolulu) ~

"I gained positive results"

“I completed a one-to-one coaching programme with Dan and the greatest result I got was setting goals with the belief that I could actually attain them, instead of just ‘hoping’.

Because of this I gained positive results such as the chance to work with some of the world's most valuable intellectual property, top on screen talent as well as members of the Royal Family.

Dan as a coach is an expert in drawing out what you need to change and understand about your life and career - he doesn’t tell you what to do, he guides you to create goals that feel 100% your own and structures to tangibly realise them.

Dan is great at leaving you feeling empowered and taking action that achieves truly amazing things."

~ Stef Jarman (Brighton, UK) ~

"selling my business for the sum of money I always wanted"

Apart from improving virtually every area of my life the biggest result I got from Dan’s coaching was selling my business for the sum of money I always wanted, which I had tried to achieve for several years before.

Dan helped me realise the difference between change versus transformation which thereby enabled me to take new actions and gain such great results.

Dan’s coaching helped me realign my vision, set new goals and to achieve them, for real."
