About Me

I have been a licensed attorney in Florida since 1992.   From 1992 through 199, I practiced as a Civil Rights and Employment Law attorney, worked as a Certified Mediator, and served as an adjunct professor at Stetson University College of Law. From 1999 through 2006, I served as the executive director of a voluntary bar association.  Since 2006, I've worked exclusively as a business coach and consultant tor other attorneys.

Everything I've done in my career as brought me to this place.  I love working with my clients to help them earn more, work less and live better. I love helping them create the lives and law practices they dreamed about when they were in law school.

    In working with Nora as a Legal Practice Coach for over 7 months I have nothing but high praise. Nora was particularly helpful in helping me: 1. set goals; 2. prioritize; 3. develop marketing plans; 4. Boost my web presence; 5. Investigate case management legal software. Nora was also very good following up and keeping me on task. I would wholeheartedly recommend Nora as a Legal practice Coach.
