Establish Your Niche by Accident

I created a legal niche for myself almost entirely by chance.

Several years ago, I had a case that dealt with the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA). At the time, I couldn't find anyone with the expertise with this act to help teach me about it and how it affected the case I was working on. So, I summoned my studying discipline from law school and sat down to read and read and think and think...

Eventually, I amassed all there was to know about ERISA and put it to use in my case. Now, you'd think that I had just wasted a huge amount of effort on something for a single case, but you'd be wrong. Suddenly, I was the ERISA expert in my area. Because I couldn't find anyone else who knew more than I did, I learned it on my own and became the person who other lawyers would now turn to for that information.

I had created a niche for myself as the ERISA lawyer and didn't even realize it.
I easily gained state and national prominence as an expert. Suddenly, all that effort wasn't just for that one case, it was for establishing my niche in the legal world. I later figured out how to make money with this idea of niche practice, but it was only after I had given away my ERISA expertise for so long that the light clicked on.
