Ever feel like there are too many questions
and not enough answers?

So do the rest of us!

Choices Signs

But there is help out there....


The Small Firm Brown Bag Luncheon is held on the second Wednesday of every month from 11:45-1:00 at the Austin Bar Association.  This event is only available to members of the Chapter ~ and all it costs you is your time.

...Be a part of the discussion...
...Meet colleagues...
...Build relationships...
...Share your challenges ~ and your successes! 

Come with whatever you want to talk about today, and to share your expertise with your compatriots. 

 The Small Firm Administrators Group is a great way for administrators to share ideas in a small, informal setting. If you’re in the pilot’s chair at a firm with 30 or fewer attorneys, please join us at our next meeting. Whether you are new to law firm administration or a seasoned veteran, this is a great opportunity both to learn and mentor.


 Open only to ALA members, the group meets monthly. We strive to foster a relaxed, secure enviroment where we can talk with honesty and compassion. 

"There's nothing more frustrating than feeling you're the only one who's dealing with a certain issue, and nothing more gratifying than to learn that others face the exact same thing. We get down in the trenches and help each other solve problems."     

- Melissa Joe, long time member


While the focus is always on relevant business topics, we often find one "hot" topic emerges and totally consumes the month's meeting. Small firm administrators get immense value from these sessions and come away with new and interesting perspectives. More than anything else, it gives us a venue for expressing concerns that everyone in the room can relate to. 

Although current administrators are fortunate to have abundant resources available online, our challenges and obstacles remain. With continuing changes, from the Affordable Care Act to fee-for-service arrangements to the rise of employee-employer lawsuits, our many responsibilities keep getting bigger and heavier. Nothing can substitute the support of others who can actually hear the details of your situation and help you reason through your latest dilemma.
