Solo Practice & Small Firm Section

The Solo Practice & Small Firm Section—launched in 1996—evolved from the recognition that many sole and small firm practitioners desired and at times needed the camaraderie, intellectual stimulation, and informational exchange that attorneys generally find in larger law firms. By having consistent networking and fellowship opportunities, the Section has evolved into a collegial organization resembling a “firm,” with specialists in various fields both willing and able to offer assistance to other Section members.

Members have access to the section email listserv that provides a wealth of referrals and resources to small firm practitioners. The Section hosts breakfasts in alternating months and hosts other social activities for members. We participate in the Bar’s MCLE Spectacular each November.  Our MCLE Spectacular programs have included panel discussions on how to open a law firm and how to prepare a small firm for death, disability, and disaster.
