The Eichholz Law Firm
I was beckoned to stabilize a faltering law firm during a turbulent phase when the founder faced incarceration. With a solid legal background, I was uniquely poised to resurrect the firm's dwindling fortunes.
Under my stewardship, the firm underwent a metamorphosis: expenses were meticulously trimmed, processes streamlined, and an innovative marketing strategy was unleashed that tripled the firm's revenue. My penchant for leveraging technology led to the creation of a proprietary lead tracking platform, 'Track My Leads', instrumental in meticulously monitoring, measuring, and managing the efficacy of our advertising campaigns, thereby significantly enhancing ROI.
The firm's trajectory of growth was unmistakable, and upon the founder's release from prison, I devised a blueprint to transition him into a Legal Funding venture, thus ensuring a continuum of productivity and revenue generation. The journey, although marred by a breach of trust, was rich with learning and underscored the indispensability of integrity and due diligence in professional engagements.
Director of Marketing (Founder)
As the Founder and Marketing Director of LegalHub, I spearheaded an innovative venture that revolutionized the way leads were provided to attorneys, marking us as pioneers in the field. Despite facing substantial scrutiny and opposition from bar associations due to my non-legal background, my unwavering commitment to innovation shone through.
My strategic acumen led to the recruitment of Robert B. Trussell founder and CEO of Tempur Pedic as a formidable partner, and together we navigated the waters of adversity. One of my pivotal successes was personally recruiting the nation’s foremost authority on Legal Ethics, Jeffrey Hazard Jr. whose endorsement significantly fortified LegalHub’s ethical standing, compelling the state Bar Associations to cease their opposition. Amidst these challenges, I successfully raised $3 million in funding, although a major portion was strategically allocated towards addressing the adversities posed by the bar associations. The journey, though tumultuous, honed my resilience, negotiation skills, and affirmed the transformative power of innovation even in traditionally rigid domains.
Founded the trailblazing tech startup, iJango, and ignited its journey by securing a substantial $6 million in private equity funding. Conceptualized and pioneered a proprietary business model which catalyzed remarkable growth, propelling the search engine towards a significant market presence. Despite the initial success, faced a challenging turn of events when the board of directors made the decision to transition leadership, a testament to the unpredictable, yet enriching path of entrepreneurship. My tenure at iJango not only honed my technical and strategic foresight but also imparted invaluable lessons in navigating the complex dynamics of startup culture and stakeholder management.
