The Mostly Legal Podcast: Season 3, Episode 6 "Are Lawyers Bad at Business?"

Barrett Guttell

Has anyone ever bet on your failure? When Bill Lowman started ShuffieldLowman 19 years ago, partners at his former firm predicted he wouldn’t succeed. He was a young partner with a still-growing book of business who was notoriously bad at entering and billing time. But thanks to strong mentors, the ability to learn from his mistakes, and the willingness to admit what he didn’t know, Bill created an incredibly successful mid-size firm in Central Florida. He shares that story plus sage advice on creating work/life harmony, the secrets to lobstering and even dares to pick a favorite Marvel movie. As a bonus, you get to hear Amanda interview her boss and boy was she nervous!
