Vista Team

We like to say, “We don’t take ourselves seriously, but we take what we do very seriously.” And, it’s true. As the top consulting team in the legal industry, we strive to transform and elevate law firms through thoughtful analysis, industry know-how, and lasting support. Our approach and methods are tried and true. We know results matter. We act as your accountability partners pushing progress, achievement, and growth at your firm. We work to gain an understanding of your objectives, point out holes in your operation, and design a clear path for change. Our goal in any engagement is to become part of the DNA of your firm. We’re your consultant, your coach, and your mentor. We help your firm become more systematized and data-reports driven. In other words: scalable. We’ll show you what needs to be done to move to the next level, and we’ll help you do it.

Vista Team


We work with your team to kick-off a project and then we monitor, tweak, and review ongoing progress. Our role is decidedly one where we teach you and your team how to fish so that you will continue to thrive long after we’ve gone. We help you balance innovation with industry best practices. Conformity and uniformity isn’t the goal of our engagements. We don’t try to push every law firm into the same box. Nope. We know where and when to apply best practices and when it’s time to think outside of the box. This innovative spirit, coupled with the implementation of tools, procedures, and processes that help you achieve consistent excellence, provides your business the potential for unrivaled success.


When it comes to consulting teams that specialize in operations optimization, we know you have a lot of choices. But none of them know you the way we do. Vista Consulting Team works exclusively with plaintiff personal injury law firms. When we step foot in your office, don’t expect slick suits and a shower of industry buzz words.

"After founding and managing one of Nevada’s largest personal injury law firms for over 30 years, and teaching law practice management, I didn’t think there was much a consultant could do for me. I initially asked Vista, 'Why would I pay you to tell me what’s wrong with my firm – when I already know it?' Their response was, 'We’ll help you fix it.' That had actually never occurred to me, which showed how much I needed them. Beginning with the onsite visit and comprehensive Needs Assessment, the Vista team not only helped fix what I already knew needed attention, I’m pleased to admit they revealed and helped us resolve several problem areas I previously didn’t know about. Not only that, through consistent coaching conferences and initiation of dynamic reporting of key performance indicators, Vista trained and transitioned a new management team to take our firm to the next level. I’m completely satisfied with Vista and recommend their services to any firm, large or small."

–Richard Harris

"I have been working with Tim McKey and the folks at Vista Consulting Team for many years. From attending their conferences to hiring them for a comprehensive firm review, I attribute much of the success of the firm to the techniques they share. As they have grown, the advice they provide goes to a higher level. What started with a focus on metrics and KPI's (which are still the building blocks) has risen to a focus on team building, firm culture and improved means of delivering legal services. It's been my privilege to work with them and I can't recommend them highly enough."

–Michael McCready

"From operations to accounting, from marketing to income production, the team at Vista has done it all and seen it all. They bring all of the experience and commitment to excellence to bear and work with you to achieve the results that you have dreamed of, but been unable to reach. I know it works, I am living it."

–John Michael Bailey

"I have to confess, I was initially skeptical that Vista could significantly improve my firm. Heck, we are a small firm (4 lawyers) in a small city and have been in business for 60+ years. Frankly, we were already doing well and had managed to carve out a successful business handling personal injury and malpractice cases. But I met (and liked) Tim McKey and we were having a good year, so I thought, let’s give them a try to see if they can offer any meaningful improvement. I am happily surprised to say that hiring Vista is one of the best business decisions I ever made. Vista analyzed and made recommendations in a few key areas and helped us implement changes in those areas. In less that one year, we are already reaping substantial dividends from those simple changes. As lawyers, we think we are pretty smart and know our business pretty well, but I can tell you that inviting an outside set of experienced eyes to take a close look at the way your firm operates WILL reveal many things you never saw and many areas for improvement. If you want to REALLY learn about your firm and how to improve it, I HIGHLY recommend a consultation with Vista."

–Jim Reed

"Vista has been a consultant to our firm for almost 2 years. One of the best business decisions I made was to retain Vista. They know plaintiff personal injury firms A-Z. And that's how they analyze your firm, its efficiencies (or lack thereof or worse), office design/flow, reception procedures, telephone procedures, equipment of all types, etc. If you think your office is running at the top of its game and you don't need them, you're probably wrong. I can't imagine Vista not being able to improve even the best run firms. The payback from what they do is likely to be realized within the 1st 3-6 months."

–Jerry Parker

“The Joye Law Firm would whole-heartedly recommend Vista Consulting’s services. It’s been nearly two years since Vista did the initial needs assessment at our firm, followed by several weeks of ‘boots on the ground’ work. With the benefit of hindsight, I can easily say that improvements we’ve made as the result of their services have easily more than paid for the costs of the same (and that was probably true a few months in). This is true based on improvements in our case management efficiency and especially in regard to better intake procedures. Our average new cases per month have increased 50%, and this is due in large part on our doing a better job of following up on potential new clients.”

–Kenny Harrell

“… They have also worked with us in ways to improve how many new cases we sign-up – they constantly are coaching us in ways we can do things better in that regard. In our weekly meetings we go over our new case sign-ups, our demand times and various other statistics and topics. They hold us accountable to ourselves… I could go on & on – our accounting department was also restructured based much on their recommendations. And, Vista also researched and found a new CPA firm for me which actually keeps up on telling me what needs to be done instead of just keeping things as the status quo.”

–Bill Berg

“We met with Vista for a strategic planning session as our firm is at the crossroads and we wanted some outside perspective to help us with our planning. Vista provided a very focused environment so that we could develop our “Painted Picture” or 5-year plan. As we were very involved in the process, the conclusions we arrived at were not surprising to us, but having a road map to help us take the next step has been very beneficial to us. We have been working on the required steps and are making progress, and we do always come back to the Painted Picture and the principles we discussed in realizing our objectives. It is very much an ongoing process, and we know Vista is there for us, if and when we need their further input and objective perspective. Vista’s knowledge of the inner working of Plaintiff Personal Injury law firms allowed them to offer their insight and perspective to our unique circumstances. The fact that we are in Canada proved to be no barrier to understanding what our firm is all about.”

–Wendy & David Share

"As our firm grew, it became difficult to track the progress of cases through the various units, along with the customer service provided to our clients. VISTA developed dashboards for all this and more! When viewing our dashboard, I now have all the important data at my fingertips: client contact, file review, the number of demands filed, files placed in suit, and so much more! Our unit managers also use these tools to ensure that attorneys and staff are staying on-track. As Managing Partner, I am pulled in many directions at once and am often out of the office — the dashboard allows me to zero in on issues as they develop, regardless of my location or the time of day. Great solution for us!"

–Paul B. Harding

"Within a short time of working with the Vista team, the main accomplishment – one that I did not anticipate – was to find a way to ensure the things I valued were actually being done by my team. We have become a firm driven by client service, and the Vista dashboard reports and other tools merely help us achieve those goals. It’s hard to do all of the above without a plan, and Vista has worked directly with my internal team to not only come up with a right-fit plan, but also helped us implement that plan successfully."

–Gary O. Bruce

"Vista's core team is a tripod of experts helping to shape me into a better Managing Attorney. They do it without fear and with so much grace, humility, and patience! And they throw a great party after the hard work all day!" #OurConsultantsAreBetterThanYours #Guaranteed
