Literally just talk to encounter and give them a business card. Give out thousands a year. If you're fairly normal and can hold a conversation this should result in lots of clients after some time.

how many business cards do you give out a month? What are some places where you chat people up most effectively?

I order 2k cards from Vista Print about every six months. I'm pretty much out when I re-order.

I literally talk to people everywhere. In line at the market, waiters, uber drivers, mailmen, people at the gym, people at jui-jitsu, etc.

I was Chandler and Kenny at lunch a couple weeks ago and I just called over the bus boy and told him to send me cases just to make a point to them.

Brother what do you think about Orange County as a market compared to LA for wat you do? Obviously it’s a lot smaller. Could you also tap into LA if you’re based in OC?

My practice is in consumer law, so a lot of referrals come from bankruptcy attorneys because people with debt issues likely deal with automated calls, creditor/collector harassment, and credit reporting issues. Therefore, I just tried to network with as many bankruptcy attorneys I could since the typically don’t handle consumer issues beyond bankruptcies. I also paid generous referral fees.

Some work referred from my own firm, answering questions on Avvo, advertising on Avvo, getting my name on some lists of attorneys doing some specific types of work.

in general it's pretty easy to find clients when you provide a service that almost everyone needs

85% of it is just being likeable
