Dear Judged
how to build clientele..I would like to figure in the list of the most successful attorneys for 2007. This infers that I would have to work on my list of clients. From your experience, how would you help me climb up the rungs faster?

Dear Unununium,

Aren’t we feeling a little ambitious? That’s quite a goal you have…and to be honest, I’m not sure how feasible it is. However, if you’re looking to build up your clientele, here are some things you should consider:

1. Word of mouth: I’m not kidding…you’d be surprised how much business a good referral from one of your existing clients can bring in. Subtly let your clients know that if they know anyone who needs an attorney, you’re the go to person…

Quality advertising: By quality, I’m not talking about pasting your face on the side of a bus. Invest in some quality, professional marketing material, and send it out to everyone in your area.

Connections: Try and network with other attorneys in your area. Attend those terrible bar mixers, and see if you can connect with other attorneys who would be willing refer some business your way. Yes, hanging out with other lawyers sucks, but success comes at a price!

Good luck!
