File Checklist – Data Driver
On the inside of your new case file, consider keeping a checklist and reference. I prefer making a label because I use a template and can easily stick it on the folder.
Useful information to include
Client name and address
Source of referral to you (!! this is the most valuable marketing data you can collect)
A checklist of stages and deadlines (e.g. obtain records, expert disclosure, discover closure, expectation of a trial date)
Contact person at the law firm who can tell me what I need–usually a paralegal or admin. assistant. Get to know these folks on a first name basis and you’ll have a much better chance of getting your answers quickly–like setting a deposition suited to your schedule!
Establish an email signature for your business email. Make it simple to reach you!

“Psychiatrist or Psychologist + Forensic + Expert + Witness +++++” The profession comes with so many letters and requires better typing and spelling skill than your average bear.
Available domain names are slim if you stick with the obvious–I’ve been trying to figure out how to get the owner of forensicpsychiatry.com to sell to me for years!
Most forensic professionals use their entire name, Drjoesjameschmoephd. It’s hard to remember and hard to type.
Workaround: Think outside the box or consider a second domain name that points t your primary website.
A fun tool is namemesh.com. You type in your search name and if it isn’t available, Namemesh displays handy alternatives.
