For lawyers that are just starting out on their own, there are many books that can help. One book has been a primary tool for many startup lawyers- How to Start and Build a Law Practice. Others include Solo By Choice: How to be the Lawyer You Always Wanted to Be and Solo Contendere: How to Go Directly from Law School Into the Practice of Law Without Getting a Job.
Conferences and seminars are an excellent way to learn, as well as collaborate with other attorneys over new technologies. The ABA offers the Techshow and the Solo and Small Firm annual conference.
These are just a few of the best resources out there for attorneys to increase knowledge or learn how to break away from the firm to start their own practice and go solo.
