Forty years ago today, I left the world of employees and became an entrepreneur by opening my own law firm. The law was soon incorporated as Barry Zalma, Inc. When I opened for business on October 1, 1979, I had no clients and no assurance that I would have any in the future. I had borrowed money from the bank to transport me for the first six months and was worried about my ability to pay the loan with my third child to be born.
To my surprise and delight on October 1, 1979, at 8:10, the best claims user on the London market, Alan Warboys, called from London and gave me my first case as an independent lawyer to represent certain insurers at Lloyd & # 39 ;s, London. He and Lloyd & # 39 ;s Underwriters he represented showed faith in me as a lawyer and insurance expert. Alan is now and will always be my law firm's first client and is still and always a good friend. He's retired from the market now and I'm retired from law practice. Even though I retired from law practice, I still work an eight-hour day, five days a week as a consultant, author, blogger and video blogger. law in California full time until I retired from law practice in 2015. To you, besides Alan, who have honored me by keeping me as a lawyer, thank you for a long, productive and successful legal career.  In 2015, I asked the California Bar to make my license to practice law inactive, and I agreed. I will limit my work to working as an insurance claims handler, insurance fraud and insurance consultant, expert witness, teacher and author.
