Creating Your Law Firm: Your Vision, Your Life
December 7, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
In partnership with WSBA’s Low Bono Section, Moderate Means Program, and the Law Office Management Assistance Program, the SU Low Bono and Solo Initiative.
Starting a law firm can be an intimidating endeavor, but it is not only manageable, it can be rewarding. Jenny Anderson and Greg McLawsen are living proof that running a small firm is possible and is a great path to fulfillment of your personal goals.
Jenny Anderson will share her experience starting a low bono practice before “low bono” became a trend, and how she grew her solo practice to a three-partner firm. Greg McLawsen will discuss how his decentralized, cloud-based immigration law firm allows him to work while traveling in Asia, and has part of its team based in Bangalore.
The goal is for you to leave this CLE feeling energized and capable of taking on the challenge of starting your own firm.
Jenny Anderson is one of the three partners that make up Anderson, York, & Stratton, a low bono family law firm with a focus on cases involving domestic violence and child abuse. Jenny is a Seattle native and earned both her BA and JD from the University of Washington. In addition to her law practice, Jenny is an adjunct faculty member at Seattle University School of Law, where she has taught family law practice skills and is developing the curriculum for a class on domestic violence. She is also a founding member and the 2014-15 Chair of the Low Bono Section of the Washington State Bar Association and serves as a mentor attorney with Eastside Legal Assistance Program.
Greg McLawsen is the founder and managing attorney of Sound Immigration, a cloud-based immigration law firm. Greg has championed the reinvention of law practice as Chair of the Solo and Small Practice Section of the Washington State Bar Association and as co-facilitator of Seattle’s Legal Technology and Innovation Meetup group. Formerly a member of the WSBA’s Future of the Legal Profession Task Force, Greg works to bring innovation into the practice of law. A proponent of alternative legal careers, Greg has run his law firm from Burma, China, India, Hawaii, Thailand, Laos, and sometimes Washington State.
