Have happier clients. Get better results. Make more money.

You can have a more efficient and profitable law practice by being a better manager of your clients, cases, and practice. When we are disorganized, we waste time and resources. Stop Putting Out Fires will help you build a more productive practice by focusing on three areas:


  • Have happier clients by better understanding their needs and establishing strong relationships.

  • Get better results through more effective case management and litigation strategies.

  • Make more money -- not by working more hours -- but by setting goals and working more effectively.



Stop Putting Out Fires is an indispensable resource for any lawyer who wants to be more productive, capture more billable time, and learn from the hard-earned lessons of others.
