Change your practice and your life

I’ve been an attorney for ten years, licensed in three jurisdictions. I’ve been in a law firm, an assistant DA, in-house general counsel, and a solo practitioner. I’ve been searching for a way to make my legal career fulfilling, rewarding, and low stress for the entire time. I’ve dabbled with flat fees here and there, mostly with Estate Planning work, but I’d never really been able to figure it out. The fears kept calling: “What if I don’t charge enough?” “What if they don’t pay?” “I really have no idea how to charge for this case?” “All my clients know is hourly fee billing, they’ll all disappear if I change things so drastically?” “I can’t afford to quote such high prices, can I?”

Those fears are all real. Brita’s course shows you how to overcome those fears. I’ve now been implementing the strategies and techniques that Brita teaches for a few months, and I have been freed from most of those fears. I recently quoted a potential new client my newly figured flat fee, without flinching. Since she’d been referred by a friend, I actually discounted the quote (don’t do that). She frankly and honestly told me she thought that the fee was way too high. This time I didn’t scoot the fee down, or offer some other sort of discount. I stuck with it, and she walked out the door. Of course I found out from my friend that she hired another attorney who quoted her half the fee, but who has nowhere near the experience or understanding of her Estate Planning needs. I hope she doesn’t regret it.

Why do I tell this? Because, without Brita’s course, this lady would be my client. She would be difficult to work for, she wouldn’t value my work, because I didn’t ascribe the proper value to it. You need this course. It will change your practice, and your life.
