Atlanta, GA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/30/2011 -- Digisoda Publishing announces the publication of Grinding It Out: How To Create A Six-Figure Law Practice (ISBN 9780 983360018, Digisoda Publishing, 2011) by famed attorney Chris Shella. Set for release on March 31, 2011, Shella, a renowned attorney for major felonies and federal criminal defense cases, outlines the steps essential to make any law practice into a six-figure and vibrant practice. Drawing on his own experience of fourteen years of practice up and down the East Coast, Shella assures the reader that what is needed to be successful is a latop, a couple of suits, a phone number, a law degree, and a bar card. It is written in easy to understand way for someone starting their own law practice or someone with an existing law practice who wants to take it to the next step.

“There is no get rich quick formula in Grinding It Out: How To Create A Six-Figure Law Practice,” said Chris Shella. “The reason for this book isn’t because I am smarter than other lawyers. It’s just that over time, I have learned what it takes to be successful in practicing law. Sadly, it’s something that isn’t taught in law school, or law books, or a professor’s lectures. It is learned from testing and errors back and fourth and the practice of law. This book is designed to help fellow lawyers and those entering the practice of law, who are facing the worst economy since the Great Depression, advice on how to run their firm and make it profitable.”

Already available on Kindle, Grinding It Out: How To Create A Six-Figure Law Practice is currently ranked number 3 in sales for books related to law education. Among the topics covered in the book are how to get your office started, how to handle cases, how to ensure payment. Shella offers advice from the desirability of laptops versus desktop computers in setting up a law office (he says laptop) to the need to run a lean and mean office – that means no staff. Overlooked by many new lawyers is the need for insurance, Shella preaches in the book the need for insurance as you start out and as your firm begins to flourish. Another key topic covered is how to bring on business for the firm. While politics to many is a bad word, Shella suggests it is a good way to make connections and bring on business for your firm.
