Susan,
One of the points i keep seeing brought up about new solos getting clients is by networking family/friends/colleagues.

But what about those of us that plan on moving to a complete new city where we will know on one?

what are your thoughts on temping (lawyer work) while building your practice?

can it be done very part time, just enough to pay the bills, while trying to build a solo firm?

Hey Susan

Any recommendations on how one could get a paid gig working for a solo during the summer?  They must need help occasionally, right?

makes it much easier for them to carry

plus, easy bum access...

Hey Susan,
What kinda work can you do in that period after you graduate but b4 you pass the bar if you want to go solo?

Im assuming you cant do normal lawyering work???

There is less and less of it,other than bankruptcy litigation, probate and family law matters. The reason of course has to do with arbitration, as well as damage caps and preconditions to filing suit (such as large cash bonds before undertaking malpractice cases). Most every consumer contract, insurance contract, etc., has a mandatory arbitration clause in it.



um. so your question is: you hear there is no more litigation because everybody goes to arbitration, so what should you practice...? how about arbitration?

i considered that, but not sure how it pays...

Unfortunately, the information you are providing is too vague and overbroad.  It would be remiss of me to comment on what other solos have shared with you because I don't know what was said.  You will need to be more specific.

basically, they are saying that with all the new regs and rules that its very tough for a solo to do litigation work (esp in the beginning)

heres some of what one of them said...
