About the Position
How to Manage a Small Law Firm has an opportunity for a full-time fractional Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) position that is as challenging as it is rewarding.

We strive to help and support law firm owners who are facing challenges in marketing their law firm, and this position is crucial in allowing us to effectively help them.

This position requires a person who is positive, energetic, creative, and have the ability to hold firm owners accountable, with a natural inclination to want help anyone they’re talking to.

If this is consistent with your mindset, we look forward to receiving your application.
