Like you, I am a lawyer. Not only a lawyer, but a solo lawyer at the Skiba Law Group. I know the pride of owning my own law practice. I know the long hours, the stress, the ups, the downs, the clients, and everything in between of running a law practice.
I have started my own practice – twice. I have made many mistakes, a few good choices, and hopefully learned from them all. I currently practice law at the Skiba Law Group in the Phoenix, Arizona metro area, author a bankruptcy blog (http://skibalaw.com), consumer rights blog, and produce a weekly podcast found at Skiba Law Group.
My first attempt at writing an article for a blog was in June 2009. Since then I have written hundreds of articles on different blogs that helped take two of my blogs to the top five in local Google search results – both in the highly competitive area of bankruptcy law.
My purpose at JDBlogger is to show you that you can take control of the marketing of your law practice. That you can build a thriving and profitable law practice with more clients than you thought possible. And you can do all of this without having to pay Google or some marketing company thousands of dollars a month.
Best of all, you can do it with professionalism and become the go-to lawyer in your field.
At JDBlogger I will teach you what I have learned over the years. Blogging, podcasting, and social media are here to stay. They will revolutionize the way you market your practice – even the way you think of your law practice.
Your practice. Your way.
I have been practicing law for about 10 ten years. I opened my own law practice after I had been out of law school for a mere 18 months. The practice grew from a solo operation to have an associate, a law clerk, and staff members. Three years later I took an offer to become part of a well-respected Phoenix real estate firm. It wasn’t too much later than I realized that I enjoyed the small firm law practice and after three years of firm life jumped back out on my own.
I attended law school at the William S. Boyd School of Law at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas and completed my undergraduate degree at Brigham Young University.
While at BYU I had the privilege of playing football and was part of the inaugural Mountain West Conference champion team.
My wife Jessica and I have six kids (yes…six), three cows, two horses, and about twenty chickens. I would tell you what I do in my free time, but I haven’t had any in about fifteen years and I can’t remember what I did before then.
