Welcome to the Solo Practice Toolkit

A User-friendly Guide to Starting Your Own Law Practice

With each passing year, more and more Tennessee attorneys decide to “hang their own shingle” and begin a solo or small firm practice.  We live in age where nearly infinite amounts of information are available – if you can find it. Too often, the most necessary piece of information is the proverbial needle amongst a trillion bytes of digital haystack.

2013-14 Tennessee Bar Association President Cindy Wyrick recognized the need to develop a single, user-friendly guide in which new solo and small firm attorneys could access useful information in one place. Her vision has resulted in this TBA Solo in a Box Toolkit. The information contained in the Toolkit was gathered from numerous existing TBA resources, as well as from successful solo/small firm attorneys across the state.

This is – and always should be – a document in process. If you have useful information you would like to add, please contact TBA staffer Christy Gibson.
