The foundation of a strong law practice is a strong referral network. While referrals can come from your clients, a strong referral network among your legal colleagues is important too. If you receive a potential matter in an area in which you do not practice, you need to know what questions to ask, documents to request, and key direction to dispense, prior to sending that matter to your colleague in that area. Attend this program to learn how to handle the initial call and gather useful information from the potential client during that first contact.
