Seminar series aimed at solo and small firm practitioners

The Oakland County Bar Association will kick off its Law Practice Management Series, its innovative continuing legal education program benefiting solo and small-firm practitioners, on September 26 at the OCBA offices in Bloomfield Hills.

“More than half of OCBA members practice individually or in a small firm of less than 10 lawyers,” says OCBA president Gerald J. Gleeson II. “Recognizing this, the OCBA put together a series of seminars focusing on the fundamentals of starting and maintaining a law practice. Whether you are a new lawyer or someone who has been practicing for years, these seminars address the needs of small-firm practitioners.”

Law Practice Management Series seminars will take place on the last Tuesday of every month from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. The inaugural program on September 26 will be “Hanging Out Your Shingle.” Attorneys Timothy P. Flynn of Clarkston Legal; Amanda A. Page of Page Law PLLC; and Richard S. Victor of Law Offices of Richard S. Victor and Of Counsel to Hertz Schram PC will discuss the practical pointers for starting a solo practice including the skills and personality required to run a solo practice; the decision to take on partners or employees; and the type of office to have, whether it is virtual or bricks and mortar.

Judith S. Gracey of The Gracey Law Firm will moderate. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own questions.

The Law Practice Management seminars are $30 each for OCBA attorney members and $40 for non-members. New Lawyers, students and paralegals can enroll for $25 per seminar. OCBA members who purchase an LPASS for the entire series will receive a discount giving them one seminar free. Register online at
