The Next 7 Figure Attorney Summit is Announced

7 Figure Attorney - West Palm Group Shot

It is with great excitement that the team at 7 Figure Attorney announces our next Summit on Thursday, March 8th, 2018 at the Rosen Shingle Creek Hotel in Orlando, Florida!

The 7 Figure Attorney Summit was extremely popular with our first group of attendees in West Palm Beach in March 2017. We had 30 lawyers from three different states in attendance, all of which had left with the highest remarks for the Summit!

What is the 7 Figure Attorney Summit?

  • It’s a one-day seminar, jam-packed with practical advice and tips on how to build a great law firm from our distinguished speakers
  • You’ll receive a total of 6.0 CLE credits from the Florida Bar in categories including General, Ethics, and Technology credits
  • All of your expenses are included in the reasonable registration fee of only $499
  • You’ll join a growing group of 7FA alumni who keep in touch via Facebook groups and our online web portal at SevenFigureAttorney.com

Craig Goldenfarb is the founder of his own multi-million personal injury law firm in West Palm Beach, and the creator of the 7 Figure Attorney Summit. Joining him at the Summit as confirmed speakers will be Michelle Winfree, his Director of Administration at the firm, Tom Copeland, Director of Marketing at the firm.

Winfree and Copeland will speak on subjects including human resources, building a great team, marketing with a purpose and a budget, and so much more.

Why Orlando?

In discussing the next Summit, we realized it was time to bring our unique program to lawyers outside of our county. We wanted a centralized location that is popular with Floridians. What better option is there than Orlando? You can bring your whole family! The Rosen Shingle offers various pools and spots for entertainment for the family while you attend the Summit. Stick around the hotel to try one of several different restaurants and bars afterwards!

The Rosen Shingle Creek Hotel is offering a block room rate of only $249/night, in case you are coming in from out of town.

You can register for the 7 Figure Attorney Summit in Orlando here.

The Florida Bar Approves the Summit for CLE Credits

We are excited to announce that The Florida Bar has approved the 7 Figure Attorney Summit for a total of 6.0 CLE credits! We believe that the course accreditation by the Florida Bar is a testament to the practicality and utility of the content we have created for the Summit. The importance of teaching lawyers to re-think their law practices as viable businesses that serve to deliver long-term value to clients is a concept the Bar appreciates.

CLE credits that have been awarded:

  • 5.0 General CLE credits
  • 0.5 Technology CLE credits
  • 0.5 Ethics CLE credits

The reference number for our course is 1701544N.

About the New Hilton West Palm Beach

We are excited to be partnering with the brand new Hilton West Palm Beach for the first 7 Figure Attorney Summit!

From their website:

“Hilton West Palm Beach, a AAA Four Diamond hotel, is located 2 miles from Palm Beach and across from CityPlace shopping center. With comfortable guest rooms, alfresco dining options and a vibrant pool scene, our hotel is great for leisure, meeting or business travelers. The 400-room lifestyle hotel is connected to the Convention Center, with modern meeting spaces and lawns for weddings and events.”

The hotel opened in 2016, and features several restaurants, a bar, and a beautiful pool, and is right across the screet from West Palm Beach’s main entertainment hub, CityPlace.

Detailed Agenda for 7 Figure Attorney Released

Any legal business or marketing seminar worth its salt will live or die by its agenda. Star-speakers alone are not enough to make sure that every attendee will walk away satisfied that they received their money’s worth.

That’s why at 7 Figure Attorney, we are putting an emphasis on the program itself. That includes the breadth and depth of topics to be covered, accompanying take-home materials, and the utility of the information provided (in other words, is the information immediately and deeply useful?)

We put a lot of thought and time into developing this year’s topics for the first 7 Figure Attorney Summit, which we are proud to now release!

Meet Craig Goldenfarb, Esq.

Craig Goldenfarb HeadshotCraig Goldenfarb, Esq. is the founder of the Law Offices of Craig Goldenfarb, PA in West Palm Beach, Florida, and also your founder, host, and main speaker at the 7 Figure Attorney Summit for 2017. His law firm (“LOCG”) is one of the preeminent personal injury law firms in the ultra-competitive South Florida market, thanks to Craig’s prowess as a businessman and marketer, and the incredible team of dedicated employees he has built over the last fourteen years.

Craig started LOCG in 2002 with one secretary, two staplers, and most importantly, a belief that he could do it on his own. Fast forward to 2017, and LOCG has nearly 900 cases in house, a staff of nearly 50, and a multi-million dollar top line. The firm grows by about 20 each year. How did that happen?

At the 7 Figure Attorney Summit on March 16th, 2017, you’re going to find out. Craig started 7FA with a simple goal: to share the things he’s learned about the business of law with his fellow solo and small law firms. Building a seven figure law firm requires a strong foundation of business acumen, a bit of luck, and whole lot of determination and tenacity. Many of the hard lessons learned in building a successful law firm Craig had to discover on his own. At the Summit, he’s going to save you that trouble.

From Craig’s presentation at the Summit, you’re going to take-away:

  • The foundation and principles of the business of law that they don’t teach you in law school
  • How to mitigate risk and overcome fear in building your law firm and marketing yourself
  • Proper business structures for law firms, and how to budget time to work on your business, instead of for your business
  • Why standing on the shoulders of those who came before you is so integral to success

And much, much more. Craig is an entertaining, inspiring, and energetic speaker. You may want to bring two notepads for this one!
