A little over ten years ago, I organized informal get-togethers once a month at a local pub to talk about law practice management challenges. It was casual, and agenda-free. No topic was taboo, and all who were interested were welcome. This little group grew by word of mouth to a group of 200+ attorneys who wanted to continue to hear about our get-togethers. And we continued out meetups each month all this time, celebrating our 10-year anniversary in the Fall of 2017!

Two summers ago, I decided to take it to the next level, and organize a one-day conference in Chicago to expose the great things our group does, to facilitate a sense of community for lawyers like us, and to share our collective knowledge. I invite you to read more aebout the Friendly Lawyers Association at www.friendly-lawyers.com.

This awesome group of voluteers have joined me in dedicating a portion of their spare time to make this conference great! From our first planning meeting, where I emphasized that I’m not interested in competing with other bar association legal conferences, that’s not what we have ever been about. I want this conference to be about engaging each other, and inspiring each other to fight the good fight when running your practice and building your business, so you know you are not alone. This is about bringing the energy level way up, and motivating you! That has been the focus of these wonderful, creative minds in organizing this conference. With deepest gratitude, I am happy to introduce you to:
