TEN The Esquire Network

TEN The Esquire Network The Esquire Network ("TEN") hosts networking events for lawyers to meet lawyers to create their inner circle of referral sources. At The Esquire Network (TENesquire) attorneys build relationships with other attorneys to increase the number of referrals they receive and give.

If you are a lawyer, think about it for a minute: From whom do most of your best referrals come? For most of you the answer will be other attorneys. Our method for facilitating this relationship-building process is time-tested. We make it easy and - according to our members - enjoyable. Check out the website at www.TENesquire.com. We have 30+ monthly meetings in Los Angeles, Ventura and Orange Counties. In 2015 we will expand into the Inland Empire, San Diego, the San Francisco Bay Area, Arizona, Nevada and even China. You may attend as many as you want for one month free of charge. (Travel expenses not included.) Simply RSVP at www.TENesquire.com. As a members, you enjoy access to all meetings. We encourage you to try out multiple meetings and then settle in to 1-3 that you attend consistently to build relationships with the other regular attendees at those groups. Members also receive daily Leads & Needs emails from other members.

Mission: To help lawyers increase the number of referrals they receive from their peers.

Join us on your lunch break today for a fun Downtown LA meeting. There's still time to join, we just got started!

We’re all suffering from zoom fatigue, it’s undeniable. But we also know how important it is to remain visible. Experience has shown that people participate more, and feel more included, in smaller video conference groups.

So, for our October DTLA meeting, we’re going to break out into 20 minute speed troikas, of 4 persons each, and assurance has been given there will be no overlap of members. We will have open discussions on professional and personal topics, depending on the group comfort level.

We will start with a very brief elevator pitch session, and then do the breakouts. As with every year, we will have a costume contest.

As lawyers, we usually strive to do whatever we can to help a client or to advance our careers… but how are you at saying “NO”? Do you have challenging clients who always call after hours and expect you to respond? Do you give in when potential clients request a discount in your fee for fear that they will go elsewhere? Do you share ideas with or give advice to competitors? Do you ever wish you turned away certain opportunities that you only took so as not to look bad? There is “NO” doubt that this conversation about setting limits, both professionally and personally, will be one of our most interesting discussions yet! Hope to see you tomorrow!!
Save the date for our TEN Sherman Oaks meeting next Tuesday, August 8, 2017. THIS MONTH’S TOPIC: SUMMER SOCIAL! Social media is increasing in popularity for professionals. Do you use social media to market your business? Do you write a blog? Have a business page? Actively use LinkedIn or Avvo? Do you use Twitter? When it comes to sending referrals, do you post recommendations on social media sites? If not, what is holding you back? Join us Tuesday, August 8 for this super social seminar! RSVP at
