On May 17th, 2022, Brett Trembly, attorney and co-founder of Get Staffed Up, was featured on the Maximum Lawyer Podcast. Hosted by attorneys Jim Hacking and Tyson Mutrux Maximum Lawyer Podcast aims at creating a collaboration of attorneys from all over the world to share ideas, resources, solutions, challenges, and triumphs of being a legal entrepreneur.
In this amazing episode, Jim, Tyson, and Brett discuss the journey of hiring and business culture. They start by diving into Brett’s background and how he became a successful lawyer and entrepreneur. While in law school Brett really enjoyed litigation and as an entrepreneur at heart, he always knew he wanted to create something of his own. After law school, he worked for a small law firm for three years. He then realized that he was ready for more and started his own law firm in 2011. Ever since then, Brett’s law firm has grown to over 30 employees and 11 attorneys.
Hiring to Grow
The one principle that has allowed Brett to grow his business is early hiring. Although he had to learn this lesson after struggling with his law firm. After years of trying to do everything himself, he is now a delegation expert. The truth is that you cannot afford to do things yourself. This is because when you are doing anything other than legal work you are not going to grow. However, when you delegate all the administrative tasks needed to run a business and focus on the legal work you will be able to bill double the hours of work within a month.
Tyson asks Brett how did Get Staffed Up came about. Brett explains that he and his business partner had synergy and knew that they wanted to work together. As soon as ‘offshore staffing’ became a topic of discussion they knew that bringing that to the legal sector would help people get over their first hire; which is a major pain point for all business owners. After designing the business model and putting some systems in place they officially launched Get Staffed Up in July of 2018. With no plans to slow down, Get Staffed up has the ability to recruit on scale incredible people from Latin America and South Africa. The mission is to free lawyers from doing everything themselves.
