LawBiz� & Los Angeles County Bar Association Join Forces
The Los Angeles County Bar Association Announces LawBiz® Management Co.
Named as a Member Benefit Provider
For Immediate Release
Los Angeles, August 28, 2006:
In a joint announcement today, LawBiz® Management Co. and Los Angeles County Bar Association announced a new relationship by which members of the Association will have access to the management skills and practice guides made available by LawBiz® and noted law practice management expert, Ed Poll.
Law school did not teach lawyers how to effectively interact with clients; did not teach lawyers how to efficiently practice law; didn’t teach lawyers how to become good rainmakers or make money! "These skills are learned, if at all, from the "School of Hard Knocks!" according to law practice management coach and consultant, Ed Poll.
"We are excited to introduce to you someone you may already know and certainly have heard about, Ed Poll, principal of LawBiz® Management Co., has spent years defining and refining these practice management skills and we now offer his sage advice to our members," said Michael T. Elliott, Director of Marketing for the Los Angeles County Bar Association.
Poll addresses both operations and practice development issues in his work. Poll said that if a lawyer wants to grow his/her practice, the lawyer must provide exceptional service, not just outstanding service. Poll further said that this is something lawyers struggle with; lawyers are so focused on fixing the problem presented by the client that they forget both about the client and about acting in a business-like way in dealing with the client. However, this is the best and easiest way to attract new clients, according to Poll.
LawBiz® Management Co. consults with and coaches lawyers and law firms throughout the United States, Mexico and England. Poll is a Board Approved (SAC®) Coach to the Legal Profession and a Fellow of the College of Law Practice Management. For more information on LawBiz® Management Co., contact Ed Poll at edpoll@LawBiz.com or call (800) 837-5880.
