A firm of your own

You may have moments when you stare at your files, then you stare out the window, then you stare back at the files and you think your life and your practice could be different. Maybe you’ve been nurturing a dream of starting your own shop.

Taking that step is “not for the faint of heart,” said Mike Bottaro, a Massachusetts lawyer who recently took the plunge, founding the Bottaro Law Firm LLC. You should determine if you’re cut out for solo practice and therefore whether you could be really successful.

Bottaro was the guest on “The Landy Law Letter,” a podcast hosted by John Torvi of the Herbert H. Landy Insurance Agency in Needham, Mass.

The installment is called, “Going Solo – What You Need to Know in 2011.” Bottaro cites some books you ought to read and things you’ll want to think about, if you consider going solo. And if the answer is “yes,” he has tips on how to proceed in setting up your business.
