About The Conference


NOVEMBER 16-18, 2017

Jump-Start Your Law Practice is a live 3 day event with Steve Adams, designed to provide the secrets to creating, building, or improving your own solo law practice or small law firm. You’ll network with lawyers from around the nation and listen to expert speakers who will give you their insider knowledge to thrive.

Using the principles in Steve’s new book Practice Law Like An Ironman, you’re going to unlock the forces within that can help you break through any fear to create the independence and the success you deserve. From start to finish, here’s an indispensable checklist book that provides every component needed to set up your office in record time. Whether you just graduated from law school or have been practicing for years, Jump-Start Your Law Practice seminar will move your professional career to the next level.

Steven did it—and so you can you. He left the Hamilton County Prosecutor’s office after eight years when he decided to start his own criminal DUI defense and family law practice. He went from earning $42,000 a year to $240,000 in his first year going solo. Amazingly, he accomplished this with minimal overhead or the outlay of other business expenditures. And from that point forward, his practice became exponentially more lucrative, year after year, with a 2015 gross of over $1 million. You’ll see how he did it in at the seminar. In the end, Steve and his guest speakers will provide a sequential, logical approach to professional independence while giving you the flexibility to craft your own legal niche and brand.

Referrals Strategy – How to get and benefit from referrals.

Referrals are not about who you know but all about who knows you, who likes you, and who trusts you.

A strategic marketing plan helps you fully define your niche within a practice area and identify ideal prospective clients with enough specificity to market to them effectively.

Law Practice Leadership and Management - Good management is about managing systems not people. Good hiring is about hiring the attitude and the aptitude and teaching the skills. Learn to develop systems to create a self-managing enterprise leaving you free to lead your team and practice to new heights.

Technology –Choosing the right law practice technology (management, cyber security, legal research databases, and digital marketing) from the beginning saves money and time and avoids the danger or expense of migrating later, breaches of confidentiality, or lost data. Hear directly from practitioners and technology providers  and identify which solution meets your needs in terms of cost, function, and the ability of the solution to grow with your practice. Avoid the costly mistake of choosing the wrong technology by learning from both providers and practitioners.
