  • New Lawyers on their own

    In the beginning of my career, I started off as a junior lawyer working for other law firms and senior lawyers. Although it was a great learning curve and interesting experience, I decided to risk it and start my own firm while law society fees are still low. In Canada, once you graduate your fees are much lower than the norm to help you get established.

    A couple of tips that have helped me along the way and hope will help you:

    1- Contact Paralegals in your area.
    Paralegals are a great resource for lawyers looking to get new business. Paralegals are restricted in the type/level of cases that come their way.
    Many clients contact paralegals regarding cases which a paralegal is restricted from taking - Suggest to these paralegals to refer you business and suggest to their client your law services if they are not able to work on a particular case due to these restrictions - agree on a referral fee.

    2- Don't be shy to ask. Establish good relationships with senior lawyers and ask them if you are unsure about a case or how to handle a situation. If you develop a good relationship, they will send business your way when they are too busy for a particular case.

    These are simple tips that have helped me and may sound obvious to some but I hope they help.

        Very remarkable experience though! That is right, anyone will start at the bottom first before he can go to the top. We must learn the experience as a neophyte lawyer in the field before we will become expert and experienced.

        To all the new lawyers out there! Keep going on! Press on ... SUCCESS is within your reach.

              Thanks for sharing your tips that you experienced as a young lawyer. Your guide will help the younger lawyer and grab the responsibility for their own professional development. While learning the law is relatively straightforward, it is much harder to cultivate the other qualities and skills that lead to success.

                Its good to take care for new lawyers their own. New comers have to take care about rules and regulations. And also think about the disadvantages and flaws of it.

                  I advice for the newbies to start in a lower section because it is better to be low than to high fast without experience.
