So you have decided to open your own law office? Congratulations! You will be joining the approximately 1/3 of all Florida lawyers who have found being a solo practitioner a rewarding career.
Wanting to go solo is easy, but what do you need to know? How do you actually launch your own law firm? Do you rent office space? Do you go virtual? What’s a virtual law office? You likely have dozens of questions and may be unsure where to start. Fortunately, you are in the right place!
The Florida Bar Young Lawyers Division has established this website to assist you in the process of establishing your own law firm. This website is designed to provide you with the basics of starting a law firm. Every lawyer and every firm is different, so this is not a replacement for your own due diligence and research, and certainly does not address everything detail you need to know. But, if you follow these steps, you will be on your way to accepting new clients soon!
