Overcoming the Churn: The Secret to Profitable Practices

Let’s talk about ‘Overcoming the Churn’, a topic that has been gaining steam in the legal circles lately. More and more lawyers are facing tremendous stress due to outdated practices which are not only inefficient but detrimental to their work-life balance. Mike Whelan, a former family law practitioner, has identified this problem as “the churn”.

Understanding the Churn and Overcoming it

Understanding and overcoming the churn can be transformative for legal professionals. Whelan discusses in his book, LLawyer Forward, that this churn represents the archaic ways of practicing law, which increase pressure on lawyers and hinder productivity. So, overcoming the churn becomes crucial to building a successful profitable practice.

In this episode Ernie asks him about how lawyers can overcome the churn to create profitable and enjoyable practices.
