Leverage The Small Law Office Legal Resources Within Practical Guidance

Accomplish more with fewer hands.

At a small law firm, you don’t have the luxury of delegating more tedious tasks to a team of associates, and with clients increasingly demanding more value per billable hour, you need a small law office practical guidance solution to help you accomplish everyday and foreign tasks. Turn to the 1,300+ attorney authors sharing exclusive insights and materials, available only on Practical Guidance. This small law firm service features an invaluable collection of practical guidance from small law attorneys with unparalleled authority and experience in your field. Use the practice notes, sample forms and agreements, and checklists to save hours combing through research—and instead, focus on the high-value legal matters that matter most to your small law practice.

Pinpoint exactly what you need.

Solo practitioners are often required to be in the weeds of legal research due to the hands-on nature of their work. The Practical Guidance solution boasts intuitive navigation and design—making it easy to search by task, content type, or jurisdiction. Small law firms can say goodbye to infinite scrolling through lengthy search results with our practice area information, organized by task hierarchy, so you can browse a comprehensive collection of practice-specific content or quickly drill down to find more nuanced, specific results. Find comprehensive answers fast and refine your search with pre- and post-search filters. With the leading practical guidance solution, your search can be as narrow or expansive as you need.

Receive step-by-step practical guidance.

Those who practice independently can often feel stuck if they hit a roadblock in a case or encounter an unfamiliar legal task. As a solo practitioner, you’re expected to be a jack-of-all-trades. Occasionally, you’ll need a fresh perspective or guidance on how the latest legal developments affect the files on your desk. Leverage the Practical Guidance team of experienced attorney authors whenever you have a question. Expect a rapid response within approximately 24 hours, so you’ll never need to worry about missing a deadline.
