Starting a Practice

There are many details involved in establishing or closing a law practice. There are also traps for the unwary. Do you know the IOLTA requirements for Pennsylvania or how to find them? Do you need a separate account for client expenses? What type of entity will be appropriate for you? Where do you turn for malpractice insurance? Are you required to have it?

Should you go solo or join your practice with others? There are a lot of considerations to take into account - advantages and disadvantages - before deciding if you are cut out to be a solo practitioner.

How do you develop a business plan? What technology will you need?

This section is designed to help you find the answers to these and many other important questions which will arise.
