In this episode, I speak with Heidi Alexander, Deputy Director of the non-profit organization Lawyers Concerned for Lawyers.  Heidi helps manage LCLs operations and leads the organization’s law practice management program known as Mass LOMAP (the Law Office Management Assistance Program).

Episode 32 Introduction

In 2020, it has never been easier to run your own law practice.  On-line tools for marketing, accounting, document assembly and contact management have never been more affordable or easier to use.   But launching a law practice is not for the faint of heart.

My guest Heidi Alexander talks about some of the challenges in launching and managing a small law firm and how Mass LOMAP is a great resource to help lawyers get started.  We also discuss how Heidi decided to pursue an alternative legal career and the challenges she had in making her own transition.

Not long after Heidi graduated from law school, she became very interested in law firm management.  She completed a judicial clerkship, practiced for a year and then joined Mass LOMAP in 2012.  Since joining LOMAP, she has worked with solo practitioners and small firm attorneys to  develop healthy, sustainable, and productive law practices. 

Heidi is an avid speaker on topics ranging from time management and productivity to legal technology, and an author of numerous articles and a book published by the American Bar Association's Law Practice Management Division, "Evernote as a Law Practice Tool".  This year she is a chair of the American Bar Association‘s TECHSHOW Conference.
