Quote of the Show:


“Knowledge is power with action and execution.” – Molly McGrath




    • Intake systems and processes are frequently mismanaged in law firms, needing more action-oriented understanding.
    • True show rates involve clients showing up prepared and engaged, rather than a simple follow-up call.
    • It’s crucial to track metrics by practice area and individual team member performance.
    • Intake doesn’t stop at the first call; it extends to the moment the file closes after a client’s matter is fully resolved.
    • Employees, empowered with the right knowledge and processes, can become instrumental in transforming law firm efficiency.
