Law Dogs: Therapy Dogs

The entire CWSL Community is invited to join us for some fresh air and “canine” therapy. It’s no secret that stress is a major impediment to academic success. Research has shown that the simple gesture of petting a dog can lower blood pressure, reduce the heart rate and calm an individual who is stressed.

Come and meet trained therapy dogs from “Love On A Leash” and “Therapy Dogs, Inc.”

SDCBA Presents: Opening Your Practice - The Decision and Plan

Presented by the San Diego County Bar Association
[1 hour of General MCLE is available for this program.]

Please join us for this first program in a series focused on opening your own practice. Do you have the tools (and confidence) required to open your own practice? To help you make that decision, our experienced panel will tackle the complex questions and preparation needed to open your own practice.

Melissa DeLeon, Esq.
Lindsay Mercer, Esq.
Nicolle Richardson, Esq.
Hass Sadeghi, Esq.
Panelist & Moderator - Mike Battin, Esq.

The Decision: (questions to explore)
Will you enjoy working in a solo or small office environment?
Do you have the broad skills needed to run a practice?
It is a small business, so if you do not have the skills then are you willing to learn them or hire people to help you manage it?
Who should you consult before finalizing?

The Plan: (the broad brush picture of how you envision your practice)
Solo or ??
Form of business entity?
Vision of clients or area(s) of practice-who will you serve as clients?
Marketing Plan-how do you intend to market? Any existing clients?
Office, Shared Office or Virtual office?
Office management and software?
"Must do" checklist before you get started (including State Bar paperwork, business licensure, etc.)
