Thank you for visiting the Family Law Lawyer Tech & Practice blog. My name is John Harding. I am a family law lawyer practicing in Northern California. Long ago I realized that I could practice law more effectively and more efficiently (i.e., better and easier) by availing myself of the technological tools that are out there. I also learned that a successful law practice requires successful marketing. Hardware and software working together make me a better lawyer, and make my life easier. Marketing helps to bring in the business necessary for professional survival. By this blog I hope to share the tips, tricks, and technology that I have learned about so that others may benefit!

Charging For The Initial Consulation

Almost two years ago I wrote about my practice of charging for an initial consultation -- and how the decision to do so was a very positive change for my practice.  I still do charge for the initial consultation and it has only improved my practice. I also continue to chat with other lawyers about how they handle consultations. Most lawyers that I consider top shelf do charge for consultations, but how much and what they do during the consultation is still quite varied.

Ed Poll is  law practice consultant.  He publishes an excellent blog called Law Biz Blog.  He has recently posted a videocast detailing his thoughts on charging for an initial consultation (and yes, he does think we should charge for it).  Click here to view Ed's thoughts.
