Law Firms/Attorneys/Solo Practioners
Attorneys and law firms are built upon some of the most intelligent individuals. However, none of the major law schools have a good law firm management tool. Attorneys are not taught enough about communication, time management, and business skills.
Go Far Consulting’s principal, Elaine, is a long standing member of Alameda County Bar Association and on the Executive Committee for the Business Law Section. For many years, she has provided MCLE classes for the bar on communication, negotiation, exit strategy and business development.
Why we help attorneys:
We have a true affinity with attorneys and connect it with our commonality in experiencing being bullied as children with no one to stand up for us. What we admire most about attorneys is that they stand up for others, helping their clients get justice and feel supported. We want to contribute to their businesses so that they can protect more people. The attorney firms that we work with see growth and development enabling them to help more people.

The # 1 Complaint from Attorney’s Clients: What is the status of my case?
With a lawyer’s work load, follow up with clients regarding the progress with their case can get forgotten or be inconsistent. Absent follow-up is the #1 complaint of clients regarding lawyers.
What will it take to improve productivity dramatically?
Time management is the number one challenge for attorneys who balance the demands of client work, gaining clients and running a business. Technology and administrative duties can gobble up time. How can you structure days so you can see more clients and deal with other critical activities that make an attorney productive?
Go Far Consulting has expertise working with attorneys their staff, bringing significant improvements to a challenging everyday legal work-life.
One of the challenges facing attorney firms today is passing the baton from the experienced attorney planning retirement to other team members. Harvesting intellectual property, maintaining client retention and stability of the firm are key areas that Elaine focuses on through this transition period. Elaine’s experience in growth strategies and future development of building employee confidence while maximizing PR and minimizing stress help bridge this gap.
Having an efficient law practice and a good work/life balance takes planning. It’s critical to focus on the right processes to reach success and that takes the understanding of how you work and what works for you, there is no ‘one size fits all’.
