Today is our first anniversary. It’s been one year since I jumped head first into Linden Legal Strategies. The morning I announced to the world that we were open, I wasn’t sure whether you would embrace our message. Whether you’d like what made us different. Whether our model would “work.”
One year ago, I took a leap of faith. After over 10 years practicing law, I knew what didn’t work and knew that I could do it better. I posted on Facebook that my doors were open, held my breath and, just like that, without any clients (or even an office at that point), I was on my own.
The past year has been everything I hoped it would be and then some. In the past year we opened our first office, hired our first employees and, most importantly, helped over fifty businesses work towards their dreams. Like any small business, we’ve had our challenges but each one has made us stronger and more resolved.
As we look ahead, we know that good things are in store. We continue to work with some of the most innovative and creative businesses in RVA. You are the backbone of the Richmond economy and its an honor to help you grow.
We are currently working through our B Corp Assessment and hope that come this fall, we’ll be a Certified B Corp. And, we’re busy with our two new speaker series:
- Lunch & Learn – a quarterly luncheon providing legal and business education to small businesses, and
- Connect & Grow – a quarterly experiment in business development through unstructured conversations with local innovators and business leaders
So today, on our first anniversary, I want to say thank you. Thank you for your support. Thank you for your business. And thank you for allowing us to show you that there is a better way to provide legal services. A better way to engage with your community. And a better way to help small businesses grow.
