With over 200 attorneys on the listerv with various areas of expertise represented, it’s a trusted source our members can turn to for answers on complex legal issues or items as simple as where to find office space.

Join the conversation! Sign up for the solo small firm listserv.Dan Dean of Fotouhi Epps Hillger Gilroy & Mau says, “The Solo/Small Firm Listserv has saved me many trips to the law library! When I have a question, I can ask the listserv and I usually receive about five responses that same day.”

Furthermore, the connections made through the listerv can be very valuable according to solo attorney Lillian Ng. “The listserv is a great way to connect with others who face the same issues inherent to solo or small firm practice. It’s also a gateway to networking with fellow attorneys from diverse areas of practice who provide a plethora of resources from practice tips to substantive law!”

Other members appreciate how quickly they can get answers from their helpful colleagues. Charles Spiegel says, “I cannot imagine being able to build my San Francisco friendly family law practice in the past five years without BASF’s Solo/Small Firm Listserv. Being a solo practitioner, I was worried about isolation - instead I feel I have more collegiality ‘virtually.’ The questions presented range from referrals to law firm management to substantive questions to LGBT issues to the ADR processes I promote in my work; and colleagues’ answers are heartfelt and prompt.”
