Carolyn Elefant is the creator of MyShingle.com, the first and longest running blog and online resource on solo and small firm practice and author of Solo by Choice: How to Be the Lawyer You Always Wanted to Be, the first comprehensive guide to solo practice published in the last five years. Carolyn is a proud solo; she started her firm in 1993 after a layoff left her with no other options. Fifteen years later, she continues to practice at the Law Offices of Carolyn Elefant, specializing in energy law, emerging renewables, appeals and select 1983 civil rights matters. Carolyn is also part of the talented faculty at Solo Practice University teaching a very important and timely course for today's solo practitioner "Collaboration."
Watch for the grand relauch of MyShingle.com coming in June 2009 and the MyShingle Fractional Law Firm: biglaw amenities and infrastructure on a solo budget.
