Jaimie B. Field, Esq. has been involved in the legal industry since the age of twelve. She worked at her grandfather’s law firm in NYC and her father’s firm in New Jersey during school breaks. It was because of that experience that she wanted to attend law school and become an attorney.
She enjoyed her years at Temple University School of Law in Philadelphia and was lucky to obtain a job upon graduation as an in-house associate for a start-up entertainment company owned by the Jackson Family. As it was a brand new company, there were very few people on staff, so she began being called upon to perform tasks other than those related to law, including business development, marketing, and public relations. It was there she discovered a passion and natural talent for that aspect of her job.
Thus began an almost three-decade odyssey to learn and apply all aspects of marketing to help companies grow.
Even though Jaimie was fully entrenched in the marketing arena, she had never gotten far away from the law. She worked with companies that would enlist her help with projects that utilized the skills and knowledge she learned in law school.
Seeing a business opportunity, Jaimie opened Marketing Field, LLC in 2002. It would become a marketing and business development consultancy devoted solely to law firms to help them grow by finding ethical solutions to obtaining new clients and marketing their firms.
In 2008, Marketing Field’s focus shifted and became The-Rain-Maker. Since then, Jaimie has been training and coaching her clients to become Rainmakers, growing their books of business. Now, celebrating 19 years working with attorneys, she spends all of her time teaching attorneys ethical business development and marketing skills via CLE seminars, coaching, and workshops.
She has a fantastic talent for creating profitable perspectives. By listening to her clients, she helps them develop strategies based on their individual personalities. The result is the ability to open doors to growing their businesses ethically, even if they have already been shut.
Her seminars are always entertaining and informative, and she has found a way to motivate attorneys when they can’t seem to motivate themselves.
About two weeks before Covid hit, I asked Jaimie if she could help me out with a marketing plan. We spent an hour or two on the phone together, and she told me to set goals and keep pursuing them and not to be afraid to get myself out in the market. She sent me a plan to complete, and encouraged me to - more than anything - believe in myself. She gave me a dollar amount in revenue as a goal, and I laughed because it was $xxK more than I had in mind as a goal, and about $xxK more than I had ever made. Then Covid hit and my practice was literally turned on its head. Everything now is the opposite of what it was then. My clients come from elsewhere, my business is totally different than what I was doing for at least the last eight years, if not longer. But after speaking with Jaimie, I felt more confident in my own abilities to attract, keep and maintain satisfied clients. I now find myself on a trajectory which has a more than fair chance of reaching not only the goal I set for myself, but the goal that Jaimie set for me. And it's all because she gave me the confidence to believe in myself and in my own abilities. And yes, despite our external hubris, we lawyers need to believe in ourselves too.
I can't recommend Jaimie highly enough.
