Coach and Mentor to solicitors
Running a law firm can be a challenging task. Staff and recruitment challenges, business growth and cash flow challenges, even the dreaded work-life challenge. As a coach and mentor to solicitors since 2003, I have helped law firm owners across the UK and Ireland to overcome every issue imaginable and to fall back in love with their law firm. If you need some help now, why don’t we talk?

Please call 0117 290 8555 to arrange a mutually convenient time for a telephone discussion, Email me or complete a Free Online Enquiry. There is no cost or obligation. We will have a chat about where you are and where you would like to be and I will suggest some things you can do to get there quickly.

Why choose me as your coach or mentor?

I was a solicitor from 1991 to 2003. Since 2003 I have been running Samson Consulting. I specialise in the legal profession for several reasons:

  • I know the industry inside and out. From working inside it to working with law firm owners and engaging solicitors to carry out legal services for my personal and business needs, I know this industry and all of its challenges very well.
  • I am told that I am a good listener. Perhaps, more importantly, I hear what is not being said as much as what is being communicated to me. This allows me to ‘cut to the chase’ so that I can solve the problem quickly and efficiently.
  • I am a simple person. I won’t over complicate matters.
  • I gain my job satisfaction from my clients’ successes. If we agree to work together, you get me on your side. I will work with you to achieve the results that you are looking for as quickly as possible.
  • I do not tie any of my clients into long term contracts. I only want to work with you and you with me if what we are doing is working for us both, so I never tie my clients into long term contracts.
  • I am the author of the Amazon bestseller The Law Firm Growth Formula. However, my expertise in the legal sector is not just limited to law firm growth. Coaching and mentoring on all aspects of running a law firm is a large part of what I do.

Let’s talk.

If you have not engaged a coach or a mentor before, don’t worry, I make it easy for you to discover more. Simply call or email on the details below and we will set up a mutually convenient time to discuss where you are and where you would like to be. I will outline a way for you to get there, with or without my help. It is then up to you whether you choose to go ahead.

I look forward to speaking with you soon.

Case Study

Beating the big boys whilst spending a fraction of their budget

We focus on accident claims, and it’s vital for us to have a strong web presence, which we didn’t have before Nick got involved.

As a result we had to buy in leads from other sources, reducing our profit margins and making us reliant on other companies to generate revenue.

We did have a company working on our Adwords and website, but the truth of the matter is that they weren’t getting the results we needed them to get – we only had a handful of clients coming in from those efforts, making us highly reliant on buying in the leads from elsewhere.

And then I came across one of Nick’s books, was impressed by what I read and got in touch with him.

The rest – as they say – is history.

We started working together with a clear brief: Nick’s job was to help us bring in more self-generated work, so we could stop relying on buying leads.

He started by working on our website, making it more accessible and easier to navigate.

Next he overhauled our Google Adwords, which the previous company had been running fairly unsuccessfully.

Adwords is hugely challenging in our sector, with some very big players bidding on some of the most common keywords, making it very difficult for any smaller firms to get a look in, and I’ve got to be honest and say that I didn’t know how Nick was going to make it work.

But he did, by analysing very closely what people were looking for and tailoring our Adwords efforts towards them.

It worked! We were competing with the big boys whilst spending a fraction of their budget, and the amount of work we got in was tremendous – we jumped from just a handful of leads and clients a month to 500 leads and 150 clients, every single month, all from our online efforts.

Nick didn’t just work on the lead generation side of things either – he helped us with the client conversion process too, training our team, making our sales calls better and improving our onboarding process to avoid drop-offs due to ‘cooling off’.

Now we don’t buy in any work at all, our pay-per-click efforts do a sterling job, and the large client database that Nick has helped us build has allowed us to increase the amount of work we do by a factor of ten, in just three years.

I’m one extremely satisfied client, and despite the dramatic differences Nick has been able to make in the time we’ve been working together, things are still improving thanks to his guidance and support.
