In this episode, Steve Fretzin and James Grant discuss:

  • Hiring a business coach early in your law firm. 
  • Missteps along the journey to having a successful law firm. 
  • Why you need to understand your numbers. 
  • Time blocking, not multitasking. 


Key Takeaways:

  • Coaches may be expensive, but if you are getting a 10x return or more on that investment, it is absolutely worth it. 
  • If you are cheap in your law firm, you will reap what you sow. 
  • In hiring an attorney, they should be producing profit for the firm within 4-6 weeks.
  • You might be a great attorney with a great mind, but if you aren’t running a good business your client will not be getting the best service. 


“You may not be the best numbers person, but don’t be afraid of the numbers; the more you know, the better decisions you can make based on objective metrics.” —  James Grant
