You cannot be in the business of escalating conflict so that you can charge more hours.
You have to shift what you are offering so that you can create a business model that works.
Brief summary of show:
In this episode, I speak with Ali Katz, Family Law Attorney and Founder and CEO of New Law Business Model.
What Ali Katz kept discovering was that the traditional law practice model we’ve been taught — based on forms and documents, billable hours, and one-off transactions — is broken, both for lawyers and their clients.
So, she invented a new law business model in her own practice back in 2003, and within three years had built a 7-figure law practice on this new model, as a single mom, working just 3 days a week in her office. From there, she founded New Law Business Model to teach her revolutionary model to other lawyers who want to serve families and business owners as a trusted advisor, while loving their lives and law practices.
Today, Ali is the CEO/founder of New Law Business Model, as well as the lead Personal Family Lawyer, serving as senior partner and law business mentor to more than 300 Personal Family Lawyer law firms across the US.
Ali gives listeners actionable tips on:
• How the law industry is broken
• Why the scarcity mentality doesn’t work
• What meaningful service means to Ali
• Tips to make your law practice saleable
• How to niche down and why you want to
Ali Katz's Book
From the publisher:
A neuroanthropologist maps out a revolutionary new practice—Hedonic Engineering—that combines the best of neuroscience and optimal psychology. It’s an intensive program of breathing, movement, and sexuality that mends trauma, heightens inspiration and tightens connections—helping us wake up, grow up, and show up for a world that needs us all.
This is a book about a big idea. And the idea is this: Slowly over the past few decades, and now suddenly, all at once, we’re suffering from a collapse in Meaning. Fundamentalism and nihilism are filling that vacuum, with consequences that affect us all. In a world that needs us at our best, diseases of despair, tribalism, and disaster fatigue are leaving us at our worst.
