Olmstead and Associates began a relationship with Karl Truman Law Offices almost two years ago, providing Karl Truman, the sole proprietor of his 14 year-old firm, with management consulting services to redevelop his management strategy and streamline productivity. Through an initial consultation and management review, ongoing coaching sessions and a comprehensive course of action, Olmstead and Associates successfully helped Karl Truman identify and establish goals both for the firm and the employees, maintain a proactive leadership role in his firm and ultimately increase both his employees’ job satisfaction and his firm’s profitability. Today Karl Truman Law Offices has grown from one to three practicing attorneys and nine employees with bases in both Jeffersonville, Indiana and Louisville, Kentucky. Olmstead and Associate’s legal management-consulting firm’s mentoring and coaching services have been instrumental in the success of the firm and its continued growth.
Olmstead and Associates attributes much of Karl Truman’s growth to having clearly defined both short-term and long-term goals for success. The following are some of Karl Truman’s objectives that were established during the ongoing consultations and coaching sessions.
In 2000, only two years ago, Mr. Truman felt the need to re-evaluate the structure of his firm so he employed the management consulting services of Olmstead and Associates. During this time, when Karl Truman Law Offices and Olmstead and Associates began their initial consultation, Mr. Truman’s firm was composed of two attorneys, three case managers and two staff members. Today the firm has expanded to three practicing attorneys and nine other employees, for a total of twelve employees. Through the objective and tactical relationship Olmstead and Associates has built with Mr. Truman’s firm, the firm was able to grow and expand, taking on more clients while increasing client satisfaction. Mr. Truman attributes much of his growth and success to Olmstead and Associates, helping give his firm a clearly defined direction and a paved road to get there.
