Daniel Struna
As Director of Client Relations with Atticus, Daniel conducts in-depth diagnostics and consultations with attorneys and law firms. As a licensed attorney, he is uniquely qualified to help clients identify their core issues in the areas of time management, work/life balance, staffing, profitability and client development. He also works with attorneys who are looking for guidance across a full range of exit strategies, from selling their firm to bringing on a successor.

Since joining Atticus Daniel has worked with the top attorney coaches and innovators in the country. His goal is to help attorneys as they seek to increase their income, decrease their stress, improve their client experience, and have more time to pursue personal interests.

Prior to joining Atticus, Daniel co-founded a million dollar small business and consulted a multi-million dollar development company in Bogota. Daniel has a degree in Theology and is a licensed attorney in two States. He lives with his wife, Natalia in Orlando, Florida.

It’s one thing to be a great lawyer, but it is quite another to run a successful small or solo practice. The key business skills to operate a thriving law firm aren’t taught in law school. Atticus, the nation’s premiere practice management coaching agency, teaches attorneys how to have highly successful practices, without sacrificing health or time with loved ones. For small and solo firm owners specifically, Atticus created The Solo & Small Firm Foundations for Growth™ — a series of three-hour CLE courses that introduce attorneys to the Four Cornerstones of Practice Growth™. You’ll transform your firm’s future by implementing the most effective strategies, tools and materials derived from Atticus’ exclusive nationwide group programs.

This seminar is an introductory to intermediate level program.
