How Do I Build Upon My Existing Foundation in This Discipline?
Once you are committed to a discipline, meaning you have already certified and are settled in your new pursuit, the challenge becomes where to go from there. Certainly, this involves building your knowledge base and skill-set so that you remain competitive and do not grow stagnant. Focusing your practice in a particular area of specialty is one way to enhance your credibility as a subject matter expert, build your brand and reputation, distinguish you from your peers, and generate higher than average fees. This starts with training and certification (where applicable and available). Specialization in high demand areas can facilitate gaining recognition in the communities you serve. But in the end, everything you do to advance your knowledge and standing can put you in high demand, particularly with attorneys who see you as a more credible expert.
