I’m a lawyer and I practice law in my home office.
I began my law firm in 2007 with just me, as a sole practitioner.
Over the years, I noticed that my clients were hesitant to call me on Saturdays or evenings because they didn’t want to bother me during family time.

So I started to experiment with the idea of running a hybrid office where I was accessible on weekends, evenings, and most holidays without having to give up working out of my home office.
My hybrid practice enabled me to scale my practice and take on larger matters says Robert.
I grew from being a sole practitioner to having a team of four lawyers, two paralegals, and three assistants operating out of an office of our own says Robert L Mckenna III.
Today, we manage over $300 million in assets for our clients, but I still operate my firm virtually.
I don’t want to give up the freedom and flexibility that comes with being a hybrid solo practitioner.
From a client’s perspective, I can be available on weekends, evenings, and holidays without having to make any changes to the way I work.
And from the legal perspective, it allows me to be efficient in managing projects.
When I started my practice more than thirty years ago, I knew it wouldn’t be easy.
I knew that if I was going to be successful in what I do, I would have to work hard at it and learn as much as possible along the way.
I’ve learned a lot of good lessons from this experience, the most important being the importance of always challenging yourself to expand your knowledge, skills, and network.
Without learning, we will never be able to deliver great service to our clients suggests Mckenna.
That is why we should always trust our gut instincts whenever they tell us something doesn’t feel right or sound right.
