Why Networking Is So Important For Lawyers - And How To Do ItWhy Networking Is So Important for Lawyersand How to Do It

Remember your first day in elementary school, and all the new things – taking a school bus, meeting new kids from other neighborhoods, to say nothing of lots of new rules? As a lawyer, it’s been 20 years or more since your first school days, but those beginnings can still teach you plenty about adapting to unfamiliar settings and new challenges – like attracting clients to build your law practice.

Credit checks during the employment process is okay, credit scores are not. Can you see the difference? Some states have somewhat restricted the use of credit reports, the practice is still considered legal for employment screening purposes. (more…)
