Are Your Associate Attorneys
Producing the Monthly Revenue
They Are Capable Of?

(Even if you answered “Yes”, read on,
because the truth is likely “No”!)

For years, I repeatedly encountered these kinds of problems with my associate attorneys.  (You’re probably familiar with many of them!)

  • My associates didn’t work “hard” enough (or at the quality level I expected)
  • They spent too much time on non-revenue producing activities (which I couldn’t bill to clients)
  • My associates couldn’t “close” engagements anywhere near the level I could (or at least the level they should)
  • They couldn’t seem to focus on getting work completed and out the door  so we got paid (lots of files were 80% done and monthly cash flow was completely unpredictable)
  • Associates came and went through a “revolving door” (and the constant disruption to the firm and our clients was a disaster!)

I didn’t know what to do, because like most attorneys, I had never been taught how to run a successful business - - including how to compensate associate attorneys so that they were motivated to consistently producing the results I wanted, and to stay with me long-term.

Almost miraculously, once I figured out how to hone my associates’ compensation structure, I found that all of them - - including some of whom I thought were already generating their maximum monthly revenue - - quantum leaped their results and my firm’s bottom line!  (And now several have been with me for over 10 years!)

I had to learn this through years of expensive and aggravating “trial and error”.  But you don’t.
