As many of you know, one of my outside projects is the American Bar Association’s Law Practice Today webzine. The May issue is now out and is chock-full of great articles.
Here are a few highlights:
A set of three articles, including What Clients Want: Learn How to Listen to Clients When They Talk (Foonberg’s Rules of Listening), from Jay Foonberg whose legendary book How to Start & Build a Law Practice, which launched many law practices, will soon appear in a new fifth edition.
Ed Poll’s Six Things That Drive Clients Crazy (And What You Can Do to Avoid Them). Ed’s new book, Collecting Your Fee: Getting Paid from Intake to Invoice, is drawing a lot of high praise and is on my reading list.
My good friend Wendy Werner has an excellent article that deserves a wide audience called Where Have the Women Attorneys Gone?
This issue has seven feature articles and six columns and will help cement Law Practice Today as a must-read for anyone seriously interested in the business of the practice of law.
I’ve chipped in with my monthly links column, Putting PDF and Adobe Acrobat into Your Tech Toolbox.
You can subscribe to a monthly e-mail “reminder” version of Law Practice Today, whether or not you are a member of the ABA Law Practice Management Section, at
We are also ready to talk to potential sponsors and advertisers for placement in both the email version and on the web edition as well. If interested, get in touch with me and I’ll get you to the right people.
I also want to note the great work Fred Faulkner at ABA does in producing and handling the technical end of LPT. Check out Fred’s blog.
