Solo Small Firm Practitioners

A Message from the Chair

Chuck Strain

"The Solo/Small Firm Committee is a group of lawyers with a wide range of practice areas and interests.  This resource provides members exposure to business practices and areas of the law that they may not otherwise encounter.  We strive to formulate interesting and informative monthly meetings on the first Thursday of every month.  We also typically offer several opportunities for CLE throughout the year. The economy and increasing number of attorneys produces a challenging atmosphere for ""the little guy.""  But as solo/small firm practitioners, we have unique advantages with which we can enhance our success.  The committee's goal is to help you do just that.  Please contact me with suggestions for monthly speakers or ways to improve the committee."
