In collaboration with the Law Practice Management and The Sole Practioner and Small Firm Section sections, Marc Breakstone and David W. White Jr. of Breakstone, White & Gluck PC, hosted the annual Massachusetts Bar Association's "How to Start and Run a Successful Solo or Small Firm Practice Conference" on Jan. 17 at Lombardo's in Randolph.

Breakstone opened the day with an impassioned presentation on what to consider before going out on your own. A full slate of programming followed with fellow panelists sharing success stories throughout the day and offering substantive tips and tactics on setting up and running a firm. The day ended with all of the panelists coming together to share marketing secrets -- the cornerstone in any successful business endeavor.

"The program got my wheels turning. Meeting others trying to start their own firm was inspiring. It gave me the push I needed to get started," said first-time attendee Tiffany Shapiro.

"I was considering starting my own practice and attended to learn about the traps for the unwary," said attendee Scott Peterson. "I learned much more, including the gold standards for office technology, billing, marketing and social media. Before you take the leap, attend this seminar."
