Tim Semelroth ran a succesful personal injury and worker’s compensation practice out in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. When an opportunity to fold a social security disability practice into his came up, Tim jumped at the chance!
After less than three years, the disability practice area jumped from $0 in revenue to $750,000!
Tim credits his success to his time with Great Legal Marketing and the strategies he learned and used in the personal injury and worker’s comp parts of the firm.
While speaking in front of a crowd of hundreds of other solo and small firm lawyers, Tim had a simple message: “If I can do it, so can you.”
Angela McIlveen and her husband, Sean, started a brand new family law practice at the end of 2011 in North Carolina. They didn’t expect to start a practice then, but Sean’s previous law partner retired without any notice just a month earlier!
In 2012, Angela started her membership with Great Legal Marketing, and the practice grew so quickly that she had to quit a previous day job she held on to “just in case.”
The first-year revenue for McIlveen Family Law was $589,000.
The following year, after putting the GLM marketing system in place, revenue grew 95% to $1,163,048!
But it didn’t stop there…
After another year, revenue spiked up again to $1.6 million during 2014!
And in 2016, Angela’s practice was listed on the prestigious Inc. 5000 as one of the 5,000 fastest-growing businesses in the United States. Not bad for a family law firm that didn’t even exist five years prior!
Bob Battle, a traffic/DUI attorney in Virginia, credits the marketing systems he learned from Great Legal Marketing for quadrupling his firm revenue (and personal income) in two and a half years - as a true solo practitioner!
Francine Love used the Power Tools program to double her income in the first 90 days as a business law attorney in New York.
Here’s what Florida immigration attorney Abe Cardenas has to say about GLM: "It's very simple. Do you want to grow your law firm to the point where you can have more time for yourself? Do you want to enjoy the practice of law again and not feel like you're in the 'rat race?' Do you want to learn what they should have taught lawyers in law school about the business and marketing of law practice? Is that you? That was me. But not anymore. One of the best decisions I’ve made in my practice was to become a part of Great Legal Marketing."
Matthew Dunaway is a bankruptcy attorney in Alabama. After committing to implement the core strategies of the Power Tools program, he had his ”Best year in a long time!”
Criminal defense attorney Daniel Izquierdo is located in Florida. After a super successful 2015, he managed to exceed his 2015 revenue in 2016… BEFORE the end of the third quarter of the year! That put him on track for 25-33% growth!
Also in Florida is Kristen Marks, a trust and estate planning attorney. There must be something in the waters of Florida, because Kristen had the same report as Daniel, “I’ve already surpassed my 2015 total revenue in the first three quarters of 2016!”
James Short, a criminal defense and traffic attorney in Virginia, said: "The team at Great Legal Marketing is outstanding. They are very enthusiastic about marketing and are so willing to provide assistance. I highly recommend GLM.”
Christopher Russell handles personal injury cases in California. After attending one of our events, here’s what he had to say: “My only regret regarding GLM is that this fantastic, practicing-changing, eye-opening, enthusiasm-inducing program wasn’t available to me 30 years ago when I started practicing law.”
Here’s an incredible note we received from Michele Lewane, a worker’s compensation attorney in Virginia: "Since becoming a member of GLM, our receivables have more than doubled in less than 3 years! Can’t say enough about how my husband has been able to quit his job and come work for the firm - it has positively affected the firm’s business. It’s brought our family closer together, allowing for more family time due to the less hours I work.”
From Canada, this is a note from medical malpractice and injury attorney Ches Crosbie: ”I had my best financial year ever, and my efforts results in pro-victim amendments to the Fatal Accidents Act and pro-consumer amendments to the Consumer Protection Act, and change to the Rules of Court. Not a bad year for any lawyer. I share this more as testimony to the value of membership than to brag.”
And finally, a “warning” from Brent Adams, a personal injury attorney in North Carolina: ”Do not join Ben’s program unless you are prepared to live a better life, have a more successful practice, and prudently manage more money than you ever imagined would come to you through your law practice.”
