Quote of the Show:

6:00 “Lawyers are just too expensive for the general public. And so what could we do about it? The subscription model is a business model that you can scale your clients and your business, unlike any other model.”



  • Lawyers are considered too expensive for the general public. This comes from the debt from going to law school and when they get out, they charge a large rate to make the most money to pay off the loans.
  • A subscription model allows you to scale your business in a better and more efficient way rather than any other model. It allows you to take on more clients with less hires.
  • Fostering relationships is a great way to build your business and clients as well. You want to get involved in the community and it’s easier than ever with all the apps now.
  • Be nice to everybody and be somebody that people can rely on. Then when people are going to need your services they will be more likely to pay for them.
  • You have to be thinking about what your clients are getting out of paying a monthly amount for legal services.
  • Anytime you talk with a client, you want to get what they have to say in writing so that you can always go back to it during calls and make it unique to them.
  • To make subscription model work perfectly you have to accept payment through debit and credit cards.
