Solo Small Firm Practice News

Posted on: Mar 24, 2020

By Morgan Decker, Rubin & Levin PC

We are in uncharted territory right now.  

Currently, are you:

  1. filing motions from a spare bedroom or dining room table
  2. attending hearings and meetings via your iPhone
  3. helping your children navigate their e-learning curriculum (and trying to stay sane at the same time)
  4. some or all of the above 

The legal community is working harder than ever during this unprecedented time in history!

A large part of our profession, especially that of a small or solo practitioner, is networking and making connections to keep the wheels of business turning. Nearly every business in Indiana has implemented reduced hours or closures to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus and law firms are no exception. Here is a great article from with some pointers on how lawyers can stay engaged and in touch, despite the need for social distancing.   

A small or solo practitioner must make the most of every resource and every minute of his or her day. This article can remain helpful even once we are allowed to shake hands and meet for lunch again. This may be the perfect opportunity to create great social networking habits for your firm that will pay dividends past the moment when hand-sanitizer is available by the cart-load and toilet paper is not $73 a roll.

Stay safe everyone!
