Over the past 19 years, our CEO, Dan Couvrette, has seen many family law practice grow while some of them have not. Some family law firms have experienced challenges and have been losing business because they have not evolved with time, never mind being proactive. He thinks that they lose clients because:
1. There are more do-it-yourself divorces thanks to the availability of information on the internet.
2. Here is increased competition for business and the Internet has had a significant impact on how and why a family lawyer is found and hired.
3. Less people are divorcing. In fact, about 25% less over the past 30 years.
4. More lawyers are taking on divorce cases to offset business they have lost in other practice areas as a result of the economic downturn.
