Tiger Tactics: Advice and Strategies to Survive the Lawyer Jungle with Billie Tarascio [LGE 055]

Apr 9, 2019 | Podcast

The importance of community and supporting each other as we build our practices can’t be overstated. Understanding that you are not alone as you build your practice is absolutely empowering.  It can lead to the lightbulb moment that can be the catalyst for tremendous growth in your practice.

Today, we will be talking with 2 of the 5 co-authors of a new book called Tiger Tactics: Powerful Strategies for Winning Law Firms. We will hear from Billie Tarascio, owner of both Modern Law (a family law firm in Phoenix) and its sister Access Legal (a document prep company for low-income clients).  Billie is also the co-founder of Modern Law Practice, a company dedicated to building infrastructure in law firms. We also will chat with Jay Ruane, criminal defense attorney and owner of Ruane Attorneys in Connecticut. They are here to share some of the nuggets from the book, so you won’t want to miss this episode.
