In our current podcast series, I interview the owners of 4 very different law firms and we dive deep into their marketing.
Today’s episode is the fourth of that series. I interview Dan Finn, of Finn Legal Group, based in Southern California.
After spending years in class action litigation, Dan started his estate planning and business law firm during the pandemic. While these practice specialties are seemingly different, in this podcast episode you’ll hear why they work so well together.
Plus, Dan has created a super smart business model, one that ditches the expensive hourly billing and is far more transparent, friendly and enjoyable for the attorney and client alike.
And, I’ll say this episode is super special for me because Dan is a long-time friend.
I’ve had a front row seat to his entrepreneurial journey and have been so impressed by everything he’s done to grow his firm during, what frankly, is a scary time to leave employment and start your own business.
“I think it’s definitely off the beaten path, but I really, really believe in what I’m doing. You know, unfortunately, gone are the days of personal lawyers dedicated to helping individuals and their communities. I think they’ve been replaced by mid-to-large law firms that are only concerned about their bottom line and not fostering the attorney/client relationship.” – Dan Finn
