Networking is an important part of being a lawyer. Sometimes you need to associate another lawyer in on your case, refer the case out all together, or perhaps, someone will think of you when they need to refer a case out. But who do you call if you don’t know the members of the bar association where you practice?
This is the challenge for older lawyers and younger lawyers alike. Most of the time, the older lawyers don’t know who is doing complicated estate planning in town because they don’t come to the bar association meetings. Young lawyers don’t know who to go to for advice when they get stumped, again, because they don’t go to the bar association meetings.
Stop being a homebody even if you are an introvert because it is bad for business. Instead, get out there once or twice a month and attend our monthly luncheons. Additionally, you should attend our professional development seminars as well no matter how long or short you’ve been practicing law.
We have bar luncheons scheduled for March 8 and April 5 both at 12:00 at Oakwood Country Club. The Annual Meeting is set for Thursday, May 4, 20176. Cocktails will be served at 6:00 p.m., with dinner following at 7:00 p.m. The tentative location is Boonsboro Country Club. Join us and participate in the networking opportunities that we provide so that you can grow your contacts in the Lynchburg legal community and learn a few things along the way.
