Wesupporting our estate planning lawyers who adopt the New Law Business Model.
“I’d gotten to a point in my law firm career where, to keep progressing up the ladder, I felt like I was going to be bringing a lot more value to the firm than they were to me.”
Will Stafford left big law to start his PFL firm, consistently producing over $30,000 per month in revenue after just his first six months of membership with New Law Business Model, and now Will is on his way to a $500k+ year.
Frequently asked questions about
New Law Business Model
How do I know estate planning is the right practice area for me?
If you want a practice that is systematizable, meaning you can build a business around it…yet, each client is interesting, fresh, and grateful for your services, we think estate planning is the best. Plus, when you do it the way we teach, you can make a great living and have a great life while doing so. But, if you aren’t sure, check out our Masterclass on Why EP is the best practice area.
What makes NLBM so different?
We aren’t just giving you teaching or coaching or theory, we give you a whole new service model + the 6 systems to support you to build your law practice into a thriving business. We’ve done all the heavy lifting of trial and error, testing what works, and doesn’t, and built a business model that works for lawyers and their clients. Plus, we’ve created a national brand and network that creates built-in demand for and trust in your services once you earn the PFL designation. We’ve been supporting lawyers since 2006 … we’ve got you.
How many hours do NLBM lawyers work a week?
We have many lawyers who are working part-time making six figures because of the efficiency of our systems. This doesn’t happen overnight but is a reality you can create by investing your time, energy, attention, and money wisely, which is exactly what your Law Business Success Coach will support you to do. Build your life and law practice on your terms.
How do I earn my PFL designation?
You begin by learning how to provide Life and Legacy Planning, and then to implement our 6 systems for building a business you love around Life & Legacy Planning. Once implemented, you’ll work with your coach to take and pass our PFL assessment so we know you can fulfill on the PFL Promise before receiving your PFL designation.
How long does the NLBM program take?
Lawyers with estate planning experience will see results in the form of higher fees and happier clients in as little as 14-30 days. If you don’t have estate planning experience yet, you can start seeing new clients for Life & Legacy Planning in 60-90 days.
How much will I make as a PFL?
You choose. You can choose a solo model with outsourcing and take home $10,000 a month or build an empire taking home $40,000 per month or more. We have PFLs earning $25k a month working part-time, and some with multi-million dollar practices with multiple lawyers. That’s the beauty of it.
