Episode 47: A New Era of Immigration Lawyering: How Embracing Technology and Affordable Pay-As-You-Go Pricing Can Significantly Increase Profits and Legal Accessibility

Originally from Trinidad, Jamila Little has always been passionate about immigration law. However, it took her some time to take the plunge from the corporate world and start her own practice. Once she finally did, she was committed to not only making great money but also serving as many clients as possible in the process. During this interview Jamila shares how she has implemented legal technology that reduces the amount of time she personally spends on each case by much as 75%. She also shares how eliminating her upfront retainer and allowing her clients to “pay-as-they-go” has enabled her to serve more clients and consistently bring over $15,000 per month in additional revenue into her firm.
