"Attrition in Associates Leads to Attrition in Law Firm Marketing"

Comments about the attrition of associates probably of interest to paralegals too:

"Interesting post from Larry Bodine about how the associate attrition problems that I [Carolyn Elefant] blogged about last week are taking a toll on lawyer marketing efforts. Apparently, because few lawyers see themselves as making partner or don't care about partnership as a goal, they're not particularly interested in marketing. To quote Bodine, 'It's impossible to market a service that you don't want to perform.'"
