I am a career management and business development coach for lawyers and other professionals.
I help motivated lawyers make changes faster & more effectively than working on their own. My clients use our coaching calls to brainstorm & work on making sustained changes in career management, business development &/or professional satisfaction.
An attorney open to coaching can get these results because with a coach the attorney has a sounding board, support, guidance, structure & accountability.
For some, I am like a partner you would like to encourage you, see the best in you & push you to thrive in your legal career. You decide what you want to work on and the desired results. I help you focus on what you want, accelerate progress & get results.
For laid off lawyers, new lawyers, ones re-entering the job market, transitioning &/or looking for a better fit, working with a coach will help you find a job or a new path more efficiently & quickly, with less stress & burnout.
I have coached attorneys of all types, including partners, associates, solo lawyers, judges, inhouse counsel & recent graduates, as well as law students, legal assistants, office administrators, engineers, insurance professionals, business owners, teachers & others.
I also provide business development trainings & LinkedIn trainings for law firms. I speak to, train & am active and connected in bar groups locally, statewide & in the ABA.
Helping individual lawyers & other professionals get results:
- take charge of your practice & career
- get more clients, build a book of business, increase revenues
- advance in your firm
- find a first or next job, make transitions
- resumes, cover letters & interview preparation
- build your reputation & your network
- market & promote yourself
- increase productivity & improve time management
- outplacement services
Endorsements from fellow lawyers are an important consideration for many when selecting the right attorney. Be the first to endorse your colleague!
