WHAT WE HAVE WRITTEN
Smock Law Firm Consultants' partners have written extensively on law firm topics and our clients and those we are meeting/serving for the first time have all spoken positively of the practical and useful advice we provide – before they even knew us or hired us.
Our usual approach is to have one of our partners author the original draft of a monograph, but then the other three partners weigh in with extensive critiques and suggestions. While we keep the topics current, we find that most have a much longer shelf life than we originally envisioned. For instance, it has been over 25 years since effective practice group management became a staple of law firm management's "best practices," but the monographs we have written during the ensuing period on this topic are still both viable and valuable.
Thus, we have included all of our law firm monographs in this section. They are listed below from the most to least recent and can be viewed by clicking on the title.
