I realized that the only source of income I had was my law firm, which was fine when I was earning in pesos but certainly not enough to survive in one of the most expensive cities in America.
SEATTLE (PRWEB) April 25, 2018
In Be the CEO of Your Law Firm, award-winning immigration attorney Alexandra Lozano shares her processes, her revelations, her trials, and her tribulations in order to help other solo attorneys and small law firms build the thriving businesses they’ve always wanted to have while reclaiming their lives.
“We care about our clients. We care about the causes. We are constantly connected to the job. But we are suffering from financial chaos,” Lozano says. “I am passionate about helping lawyers be the CEOs of their law firms. I know that solos and small firms struggle with this a lot—streamlining and automation allow me to do great work, the work that I love, and run a profitable business.”
Lozano has been able to strike a true balance between heading a profitable business and being present for her family. She has written Be the CEO of Your Law Firm for attorneys who are struggling to do the work that they love, make a living, and enjoy their lives. “Our passion for our work is not enough to run a successful law practice,” Lozano says. “A law firm is a business and you must treat it like one in order to not only survive, but to thrive.”
Lozano’s story: In 2012, after having worked as an associate in a couple of large law firms, Lozano was struggling with the thought of quitting law practice altogether. She decided to walk away from “big law” and relocate to Mexico to wind down while determining whether law practice was really in her future.
Lozano’s husband implored her to remain engaged, convincing her to start her own law practice in Seattle and manage it from Mexico. She made it work by convincing herself that she “only needed a law firm earning in pesos” to get by.
But in September 2014, while visiting Seattle for her baby shower, a hurricane hit Lozano’s home in Cabo San Lucas, destroying everything. At seven months pregnant, she was stuck in Seattle with just a carry-on suitcase and her baby shower gifts.
“I realized that the only source of income I had was my law firm, which was fine when I was earning in pesos but certainly not enough to survive in one of the most expensive cities in America,” Lozano recounts.
Using the methods laid out in her book, Lozano successfully rehabilitated her practice, boosting her firm’s revenue to six figures within three months and now earns into the seven figures!
