New Attorney?

Starting a New Law Firm

Ms. Pizzini offers consultations to lawyers seeking to open their own law firm.  With her vast business experience, she assists lawyers on how to start a successful practice. Her areas of expertise include: Marketing, Advertising, Billing, Time Keeping, Client management, File management, Budgeting, Profit and Loss Statements, Staffing, and Expense Control- all of which will be covered in the consultation.

Ms. Pizzini has combined her years of experience in managing Wal-Mart Stores with the best practices for law practice management. She offers both one-on-one consultations and group classes.  New lawyers will be able to visit the Pizzini Law Firm for a firsthand look at how she runs her law practice, or the consultation can occur at the new lawyer’s own office.  Lawyers can see the business operation up close and ask questions on all aspects of the practice.

This unique opportunity is not available to most attorneys and has been a very valuable service for those wanting to run a successful and profitable firm.  Ms. Pizzini has been sought out by the Family Law Section of the Oklahoma Bar Association to teach seminars on this subject in Tulsa and Oklahoma City, and has been lauded by their attendees and organizers alike. This program has been beneficial to brand new lawyers as well as experienced lawyers seeking to be more efficient and profitable.

If you have questions, or would like to schedule a consultation, feel free to contact the office for more information.

Testimonial from Attorney Lee Anne Dickens

"Linda's expert advice on how to start your own law firm is relevant, easy to follow, and delivered with enthusiasm.  After my half-day session in her office, I felt confident that I had all of the information I needed to comply with the regulations which govern how lawyers are to maintain their practices.   Her tips are derived from her own experiences with what works, and what doesn't.    Linda's willingness to teach me how to establish and maintain my practice didn't stop at the end of my session in her office.  She gladly provides ongoing support and encouragement."

Testimonial from Attorney Michelle Smith

"I am a solo practitioner. I met with Linda Pizzini to discuss ways to improve the efficiency and profitability of my firm. Linda currently runs a successful law firm in Yukon, Oklahoma. Prior to becoming a lawyer, Linda was a store manager for Walmart where she was responsible for a multi-million dollar operation and supervision of 300+ employees. This combination of legal and business experience gives Linda a unique and invaluable perspective. During our meeting, Linda provided strategies for the business end of my practice in the areas of organization, accountability, goal setting, measurable results, delegation, software choice, cash flow and marketing. Linda's ideas were practical and I was able to put them to use immediately. The strategies I learned from Linda have improved my business and I highly recommend her program to new attorneys and to established attorneys."

Testimonial from Debbie L. Smith

"Linda Pizzini was incredibly helpful to me when I decided to go into solo practice. I was an Assistant District Attorney and decided to make the change to become a solo practitioner. After working in a state office, it was a huge change to be on my own! I was struggling big time! Linda offered to spend some of her valuable time with me to share some organizational skills with me. She also shared concrete ideas with me to get my business going. The awesome part was that they worked! She is very good at helping to give ideas to get your practice moving on to success. Linda is also very encouraging. I walked into her office feeling very defeated and wondering if I had made the right move. I left believing in myself and knowing that there were things that I could start doing the next day to get my business going! I would recommend Linda to anyone who is starting their own law firm!"

Testimonial from Amy Bankhead

"Linda taught me so many practical things about running a successful law office. Within a day I learned invaluable lessons that will remain with me my entire legal career.

Some examples of what she reviewed with me include:

  1. Tips on Trust accounting.
  2. Website design do's and don'ts.
  3. Introduction to new and improved billing software.
  4. Current books and their authors in specific areas of law.
  5. Creating successful and organized client files.
  6. Reviewing client contracts that cover everything that you need start to finish of a case.
  7. Tips on marketing tools and the names of the companies she uses for promotional products such as pens, keychains and business cards.
  8. Advice on advertising online as well as in the Yellow Pages.
  9. Advice on how to network with other attorneys and how to get referrals.
  10. Tips on how to handle clients that no longer want to pay you your fee.

I will be forever grateful to Linda for her guidance and leadership as I continue to successfully build up my law practice.

Sincerely,

Amy Bankhead

Attorney at Law"

Testimonial from Allyson Dow

Linda:  Thank you for today.  I learned so much.  Here is my testimonial:

I attended the Starting a New Law Firm course with Linda Pizzini in March 2017.  I learned so much.  Linda walked me through the process of being a business owner and running a business.  She showed me her way of doing things and gave suggestions when I told her the specifics of my practice.  She taught me the importance of first being a business owner, and then a lawyer.  As a younger attorney, being a successful trial lawyer is often all that I think about.  However, I learned today that I have to be a good business owner first.  It changed my way of thinking and I am excited to use the new tools that I learned into my business.  Finally, Linda left me with a trilogy that I found very compelling:  when purchasing items, you do so for one of three reasons:  it makes you money, it saves you money, or it brings you happiness.  I think that can apply to a lot of things in owning and operating a business, and it is a trilogy I will not forget.

Thank you,

Allyson Dow
