  • Founding Member/ Past secretary | Flying Solo Networking Group

    2010 - 2016

    Flying Solo is a Chicago area networking group for attorneys only. We accept two members from each law practice area. We also accept membership from licensed, non-practicing attorneys who are working in other entrepreneurial businesses and professions that compliment the group as a whole and provide reciprocal value (again, two members from each of those areas as well). New members must be solo legal practitioners or sole owners of their respective non-law businesses, although we have grandfathered in long-standing members who have transitioned to very small non-solo businesses (2-6 attorney law firms or similarly situated non-law businesses in which the former solo practitioner is a partner or owner).

    Our goal is the professional success of our members. We accomplish this goal by focusing on internal referrals of business, the continued education of our members, helping our members keep up-to-date on changes in law, procedure and technology, the provision of mentoring and professional support, and the offering of ancillary services and connections. We meet on the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month in the evening, at The John Marshall Law School. We also hold social functions and holiday celebrations, and we periodically participate in other groups' functions, such as the SBAC (Small Business Advisory Council) and Linked N Chicago.

    We are lucky to count as members not only newly practicing attorneys, but seasoned veterans who are well-known in their practice areas, retired members of the local judiciary, realtors and other business owners.
