Part of the strategy of building your law firm is connecting with other firms and developing referral networks. Most of us also belong to various Civic Organizations as well. What we miss out on is really using our law firm as a platform to support charities. My own law firm is doing just that by creating a monthly highlight for needs in the community and partnering with other law firms to support various local charities and organizations that provide pro-bono or low cost legal services to our communities.
For me, my favorite charity is Feed Northland Kids. This organization is set up in our local schools to provide meals kids can take home for dinner and on the weekends.
I also want to help support our Clay County Juvenile Office by helping coordinate donations for foster kids.
It is also my dream to offer my DIY Divorce Secrets and DIY Estate Planning Secrets to local domestic violence and homeless shelter and other organizations that have residential services to help people get back on their feet.
