Going solo can be both stressful and exciting – leaving the comforts of a fully supported big law firm can be hard. But the allure of having the freedom to practice law and serve clients the way you want is also hard to resist.

Episode #5 of the San Diego County Bar Association’s “Meet and Confer” podcast takes on this topic and is live at and on Apple iTunes and Google Podcasts.

In this episode of the SDCBA’s Meet and Confer podcast, Renee Stackhouse and I chat with SDCBA Member, David Leatherberry, about his gutsy move to leave Big Law and launch a successful and fulfilling solo practice and with SDCBA Tech Officer Adriana Linares about the tech to make it happen.

This was another fun podcast and a lively, loose conversation about going solo and the tech that allow solos to compete and succeed in a competitive legal market. This conversation will be of keen interest to all those solos and small firmers out there – and there’s lots of them in San Diego, including me and Renee  – and to those thinking about striking out on their own. Give it a listen and tell your friends to do the same!

“Meet & Confer” is a podcast for and about our unique San Diego legal community. We hope to grow our San Diego audience as we grow the podcast. Please look for new episodes, keep listening, and let us know what you’d like to hear about on future episodes by sending an email to
