The Case for Culture
Most lawyers don’t set out to be business owners. They become business owners when they open their own law firm, and from that point forward, their work tends to become disconnected and chaotic. They’re so busy with HR, bookkeeping, and marketing that they’re lucky to have twenty minutes a day to work on cases. Many lawyers are drowning, which contributes to the profession’s unsettling levels of alcoholism, drug addiction, and depression.
Eric Farber knows what it feels like to be, as he puts it, “running in scarcity.” He did it for years before discovering the secret to turning things around: putting Culture First.
In The Case for Culture, Eric gives lawyers the wisdom and tools they need to transform themselves and their culture. By creating a community of people and rallying them around a shared mission, you’ll build a law practice that will take care of you, not the other way around. If you want to grow your practice and be happy, it starts with culture.

“I have known Eric for many years, as a lawyer, counselor and friend. His insight for building and inspiring teams has always been invaluable.”
“Having worked with hundreds of firms over the years, it isn’t difficult to see that the wisdom in these pages is what gets a firm to go from good to great!”
“In this approachable, actionable book, Farber shows why and how every law firm must put culture first to build the kind of long-term success that won’t leave partners and leaders wrung out.”
William J Hunt
“Innovative and necessary, the ideas in The Case for Culture bring some humanity to running your law practice.”
“Building a multi-million-dollar law firm of your own is within the grasp of every lawyer who has a good-enough reason to do it. What stops most lawyers from even trying are a series of false beliefs about how it has to be. In this book, Eric demonstrates by his actions and then teaches with his instructions how to build a law firm that is a reflection of your values. Happy lawyers really do make more money and firms that reflect our values tend to make us happier human beings.”
“Being a lawyer is a truly awful job (ask me how I know), but it doesn’t have to be that way. 80% of what makes it so awful could be solved if firms took the ideas in this book seriously.”
“A firm’s culture is the foundation for its success or failure. Within these pages are critical ideas and concepts of how to build your firm’s culture first, in ways that permanently synergize sustainable growth. Your new list of ‘to-dos’ will begin on page one.”
“Have you ever wondered what the future will hold for law firms? The Case for Culture spells out what will be required over the next few years not just to win but to still even be in business. Ignoring what Eric teaches in The Case for Culture would be a massive business blunder.”
ERIC FARBER is on a mission to change how law firms operate by showing lawyers the value of putting culture first. During his twenty-five years as a lawyer, Eric has lived the transformation from scarcity to abundance that becomes possible when you shift your perspective and prioritize people. As the CEO and Chief Legal Officer of Pacific Workers’ Compensation Law Center, Eric’s focus on culture helped him build a seven figure firm that’s gone from four people to forty in just five years, been an Inc. 5000 company twice, was named to both the Bay Area 100 list of fastest growing companies, and spent two consecutive years in the top 50 of Law Firm 500.
