On this week’s Wealthy Woman Lawyer® Podcast, we speak with Melissa Emery, Owner of Emery Law Office in Louisville, Kentucky. Melissa was an atypical law student, attending school two states away every weekend as a mother of four, yet still finishing in the top 10% of her class in just over two years. She opened her practice in 2017 and focuses on helping people who have been injured in motor vehicle collisions.

Melissa says, “I think when you’ve got people in your life that help you, you want to give back and help other people. That’s the thread that I feel runs through my life and through my business: I want to help other people. Not just clients, but other lawyers and their staff. And, the more I can expand my business, the more people we can help.”

We discuss business development practices to reclaim your time, as well as:

  • Overcoming hiring fears
  • Aiding staff with personal goals to empower employees and your business
  • Building a comprehensive referral network with other trusted attorneys
  • Approachable and personal marketing to connect with clients
  • The mindset needed to attract aligned and ideal clients 
  • And more
