Practical “how-to” seminars offered for small firm and solo attorneys at three convenient venues in Massachusetts

Increase revenues, decrease stress and take better care of clients

In mid-September, the Massachusetts Bar Association is pleased to present the “Practical Solutions Series.” The seminar series will be led by Mark Powers, president of Atticus, a nationally-recognized organization that specializes in training and development for attorneys. MBA’s Law Practice Management and General Practice, Solo & Small Firm sections will sponsor the three seminars that will instruct attorneys on how to increase revenues, decrease stress and take better care of clients. 

Powers will lead the seminars in Worcester, Boston and Taunton. The series will kick-off on Tuesday, Sept. 18 at the DCU Center in Worcester; it will be repeated on Sept. 19 at the MBA headquarters in Boston; and then offered a final time on Sept. 20 at the Holiday Inn in Taunton. 

Each of the three one-day seminars comprises morning and afternoon sessions. Powers will cover “Essential Time Management Tools for the Stressed-Out Attorney” from 8:30 a.m. to noon and “How Good Attorneys Become Great Rainmakers” from 1 to 4:30 p.m.


Half-day tuition for members is $75, while full-day tuition is $145. Non-MBA member are $150 for half-day and $220 for the full-day.


“Not only are we thrilled to partner with Atticus to provide the Practical Solutions Series to our members, we were intent on offering each of the three seminars in easy-to-reach locations for many solo and small firm practitioners,” said MBA Executive Director Marilyn J. Wellington. “We realize all attorneys, especially those in small firms, are often hard-pressed to find time away from the office, but we hope that the three different locations add convenience for attorneys to attend such a worthwhile educational program.”


The September “Practical Solutions Series” will be the first of several series presented by Atticus to bring MBA members and other practitioners throughout the state valuable “how-to’s” for effective law practice management.
