Solicitor – What Is Your Dream For Your Law Firm?

Legal Marketing ConsultantThis picture is of me fulfilling one of my dreams, which happened just a few days ago. I finally had the chance of batting with my son, Samuel, in a local cricket match. The opportunity has been presented to me before, but sadly I failed to hang around long enough in the middle of the cricket pitch for him to join me.

This time was perfect. I managed to say around until the end of our innings, and Samuel batted with me for the last two overs. It was perfect!

We went on to win the match too, Sam taking some great catches and bowling one of their opening batsmen too, not bad for a 12 year old playing against adults.

Anyway, what is the point of this picture for you? Well, this was one of my dreams ticked off; are you ticking yours off your list?

Whether they are the dreams you have for your law firm, or the dreams that you want to be funded by the profits from your legal practice, or the dreams that you can fulfil by being able to spend more time away from your practice, are you ticking them off?

Are you where you hoped to be at this stage of 2014?

With the summer holidays upon us it provides a wonderful chance to assess whether you are on track for your 2014 hopes, goals and aspirations, because if you are not, there is still time to change things and finish 2014 on a huge high.

If one of your goals is to spend more quality time with your family, you may well be able to check that one off over the summer break. If it is one of them, do the work you need to do now to ensure that you can properly switch off whilst you are away with them.

Is your law firm where you want it to be too? If not, what has to change to get back on track?

Do you need to take more action or different action if what you are doing is not currently working?

Do you need more legal staff, support staff or external suppliers to help you achieve all that you need to achieve to reach your targets?

What difference will it make to you if you can reach or exceed your goals, on a personal and a business level?

If you have already reached or exceeded your objectives, should you just pat yourself on the back for a job well done, or should you stretch yourself a little bit further? It may be the former, in which case do take the time to congratulate yourself (something most solicitors find very difficult to do).

However, if you decide that some further action is required, take the quiet time now to unwind first, and then to plan your attack from September onwards, when you have three good months to make things happen before the year ends.

It is completely possible to double or triple your law firm profits, but doing what you have always done will not make this happen. Don’t let 2014 just peter out; go and grab it by the short and curlies and make it a great year for you and for your law firm!

Law Firm Marketing

Tim Weir

Having implemented a raft of improvements to our website and marketing campaigns suggested in Nick’s excellent books, I decided to contact the man himself for a one-to-one discussion.

The thirty minutes spent with Nick on that video call provided me with more business improvement tools than I could’ve hoped for. Nick even took the time to give me some insights on client conversion particular to our area of practice.

Online reviews are often brimming with trite phrases and hyperbole, but I cannot find any other way of saying that my only regret is that I didn’t contact Samson Consulting sooner.

As a medium sized Law Firm we have been dealing with Nick for a good few years now – his assistance and support delivered in a friendly but professional way has been invaluable; added to this, coming from a legal background he has a firm understanding of what solicitors require.

At our initial meeting with Nick he advised on various marketing strategies including simple changes to our website that would enhance traffic to the site.

We are now working on a new marketing project and know, as always, we are in safe hands.

Michael Birch

Less than a year ago I asked Nick to help me grow our practice by making the telephone ring.

He’s certainly done that and much more.

The improvements are incredible and Nick has guided me through the many challenges of scaling up, not least the need for a client focused approach.

This has allowed me to start the next phase; organising the practice to ensure a better lifestyle balance for all of us, whilst we continue to grow.

Mark Shepherd

I have worked with Nick for many years. He is an excellent consultant and helps law firms and businesses attract the clients they are looking for. Highly recommend.

As the owner of a small to medium-sized law firm, I have found that Samson Consulting’s Marketing4Solicitors monthly newsletter has proved absolutely invaluable throughout the last three years or so. Of all the marketing advice I’ve had over the years, this has proved by far the best value – bringing us tens of thousand of pounds of extra work every year.

One of the best tricks Nick Jervis [who owns Samson Consulting] uses, is not only to identify the kind of marketing actions a small or medium-sized business can take themselves, but he also explains why it works and most importantly then takes you through, step-by-step exactly what you need to do. As someone who is passionate about growing my business, I really look forward to receiving Nick’s excellent newsletter every month.

It’s worth pointing out that initially I was sceptical about his promises – so many marketing businesses promise the earth. But within a couple of months I was absolutely convinced he was right and I have been hooked ever since.

I recommend Nick Jervis and Samson Consulting without any hesitation whatsoever.
