Episode 303 – Lessons on the Practice of Law in the Age of COVID-19

On today’s show, Richard Jacobs welcomes AV Preeminent rated attorney Francisco “Frank” Ramos, Jr., managing partner of Clarke Silverglate and practitioner of commercial litigation, drug, and medical device products liability, and catastrophic personal injury law. He shares his perspective on and experience within the changing landscape of law amid COVID-19.

“If COVID taught us anything, it taught us that we could all work remotely…and once things return to normal…I suspect you’re going to find a lot of firms taking up less of a real estate footprint and sharing offices…with a lot more remote work and flextime,” says Ramos. He says he’s saving about 10 hours per week just by virtue of not having to travel to and from his law office, hearings, depositions, etc. In this regard, the situation has made things simpler, but it’s certainly created challenges as well. Ramos shares what he believes is one of the most difficult aspects of the required adjustments, and how to mitigate it.

He also discusses remote jury trials, tips for keeping clients engaged and continuing to bring in new clients, what areas of law may be particularly affected by COVID-19 (e.g. employment, bankruptcy, business insurance, product liability related to personal protective equipment, civil rights matters), and more.

Tune in for all the details, and reach out to Ramos through LinkedIn or by email at framos@cspalaw.com.

About Richard Jacobs

My name is Richard Jacobs, and I've discovered quite a bit about the plight of solo practitioners and small, 2-5 attorney firms like yours these past 12 years.

I've come to understand the unique challenges in marketing ethically and effectively that attorneys face because I have:

  • Helped over 180 attorneys author their own practice area book and become the 'implied expert' in their practice area
  • Helped hundreds of attorneys successfully navigate Google's search algorithm changes, growing their websites from 2 potential clients calling a month to 4+ calls per DAY for some clients.
  • Interviewed and promoted over 507 attorneys nationwide, in practice areas such as:
  • DUI / DWI
  • Family Law
  • Criminal Defense
  • Bankruptcy
  • Auto Accidents
  • Social Security Disability
  • Slip & Falls (Premises Liability)
  • Real Estate
  • Estate Planning / Probate
  • Wage and Hour Claims
  • Expungements / Post Conviction Relief

Before you decide to invest in your marketing, it makes sense to first request your complimentary, custom, no obligation video website review.
