Law Firm Management Consulting

We provide knowledge, services and processes to help small law firms organize and manage their businesses.

Whether you’re an established law firm or just starting out, building and maintaining a law practice is a lot of work. For most attorneys it’s overwhelming and frustrating – you didn’t go to law school to research software selections, create office policies, compare insurance policies, design job descriptions, or any number of other administrative tasks.

Diane was great to work with! She is very responsive and knowledgeable about practice management systems. She went the extra mile to provide thorough information and to help my firm find the right case management solution.

Diane's extensive experience in the trenches as a legal secretary and an office manager shines through in her presentations.

Unlike other programs that give very general information, Diane was specific and detailed and provided real life ways to deal with varying personalities and situations. Plus she's a lot of fun!

Diane’s professionalism, efficiency, delivery, customer service and follow-up is excellent and I truly appreciate all the support she has provided my staff and I.

Diane has an innate ability to assess critical operational challenges and then systematically address them in an effective and productive manner.

As an attorney transitioning into a management position in a small boutique law firm, I found Diane’s presentation extremely helpful. Law school does not train us to be managers, but with Diane’s help any attorney can make strides towards improving his or her management skills.

I attended Diane’s course on Generations in the Workplace at DLC’s conference for solo and small law firms. She presented interesting, well-researched content and gave specific examples of how to improve communication skills. I recommend her course.
