Resident-at-Law Program

Our Resident-at-Law program benefits solo and small-firm practitioners, and recent law school graduates and is based on the groundbreaking program started by Naples estate planning and probate solo practitioner Laird A. Lile. Praised by the Bar and profiled in national legal publications, this model, which emulates a medical residency, involves a commitment by the selected, recently licensed attorney to serve the firm for a specified period of time, and in exchange, the firm commits to teaching the basics of law practice management. The law firm pays the Resident as an employee and the Resident's work on client matters is billable, at the discretion of the law firm, to the law firm's clients. Stetson has consulted with Lile and has developed a toolkit of best practice information, template forms, job descriptions, sample offer letters, and other items. For more information on how you can start a Resident at Law program for your practice, contact Joann Grages Burnett at [email protected] or 727-562-7303.
