"I once listened to an attorney speak about the pitfalls of starting his own law firm. He lamented losing hundreds of thousands of dollars due to inefficiencies in his management practices. He then gave examples of things he would have done differently. Everything he listed is taught in the MSLA program. Had he spent a little extra time and money by enrolling in the MSLA program he could have saved himself a lot of time and money."
