4:00 - 7: 00 p.m.
Location: Seattle University School or Law, Sullivan Hall, Room 309
Alumni are invited to join us for a month-long workshop series on developing your law practice, focusing on marketing and building a book of business.
Your practice is set up and your first client walks through the door - what do you do? Do you take this first client's case? How do you establish a client-attorney relationship? Once you have a steady stream of clients, how do you maintain good client relations? Join us for this afternoon workshop that will cover both preparing for your first client interactions as well as maintaining good communication skills as your practice grows. Trainers will cover "first client" topics including how to determine whether to take a client, what do when you know nothing about a case, retainer agreements, and engagement letters as well as "communication" topics including writing letters to prospective clients, clients, opposing counsels and witnesses, keeping clients informed, drafting demand letters, and voicemail etiquette.
