"I have known Jen Lee for nearly a decade now. I am not alone when I say Jen is one of the best networkers, innovators, and attorneys I have ever met. When she launched her Build a Bankruptcy program, I did not need a testimonial to know that I was going to get my money’s worth. My law partner and I recently finished the program. It was thorough and focused a lot of attention on the business aspects of running a Bankruptcy practice, which most of us attorneys will tell you is the place we struggle the most when trying to build a profitable law practice. The timing of the program’s launch could not be more perfect as the current economic climate has increased the consumer and corporate needs for debt solutions that allow them survive the aftermath of a pandemic. If you are looking to start a practice or expand one, I highly recommend completing Jen’s course. Unlike a MCLE training, you will walk away from these classes ready to open your bankruptcy practice-including selecting practice management software, running cases, setting up work flows to maximize profitability, and having a marketing plan that won’t empty your pockets on expensive and often useless advertising or lead generation scams.
