One of the programs my law firm offers is something we call the Lawyer for the Day program. Essentially, a business hires us for the entire day to make a house call at their place of business to complete a pre-defined scope of work for an agreed flat rate.
Here is a summary of our very first Lawyer for the Day session. I did this one with my partner, David E. Reed.
We arrived at 8am, set up our computers and printer, and went to work until shortly after 5pm.
In just a single day, we completed the following projects:
That's a ton of legal work to complete in a single day. We were able to get this much work done because we worked at the client's office and because the executive team understood going in that we would need their time and attention throughout the day to make critical decisions. We were also able to become more familiar with our client's business and goals. This always happens when we make house calls, and this is the reason why we work on site at our client's office when possible.
Our client was delighted with our work and the flat fee they paid for Lawyer for the Day session, and we were thrilled to deliver more value than we charged for our work and services.
The Lawyer for the Day concept has been tested and proven!
