Deliberate Solos is a networking group for solo practitioner lawyers and the freelance professionals who assist them (co-founded by Zara Watkins).

We are part networking (in an authentic style), part business development incubator (because who learned how to run a business in law school?), and part pop-up law firm where we share our questions and ideas in order to tap the collective wisdom of working together (something solo practitioners often miss out on). 

See below for info on our next meeting (note: meetings are usually on the 3rd Wednesday and each month has a unique theme—check back often).

Get in touch


Next meeting is on Wednesday, October 16, 2019
