Coaching for Lawyers

You’re in the right place if you’re:

  • a formerly-practicing attorney
  • a currently-practicing attorney
  • an attorney who is considering a move in their legal career as a whole, or into a whole new profession (including starting your own firm or a new business)
  • a 3L about to graduate and take the bar, who wants to build a lawyer-life they love

Besides being a social worker and educator, I am also an attorney. This means that I understand the woes, the worries and the pain points. In fact, I understand it so much, I left the practice of law as I knew it and created my own little slice of happiness as a lawyer. I know what it takes, and I know your mindset already about change and challenge. I can tell you like it is, commiserate with your aggravations, but help you move forward past the things that are keeping you back.

It’s true. Lots of other coaches can help you … but the advantage of working with me is that I’m your ace in your pocket. When you work with me, you’re working with:

  • another lawyer who actually understands the pressures of being a lawyer
  • someone who knows first-hand what we’re up against to create the life we want
  • an attorney who turned her life upside-down and created a happy, rich life worth living

I know you want a happy, rich life, too … and you deserve it. You’re no different than I was when I was trying to decide whether to take the leap.

I’ve been where you are – do it, don’t do it, do it, don’t do it. It’s a hard decision.

But what I’m here to tell you is that when you’re happy as a lawyer, you make the entire legal profession better. And you make the lives of everyone around you better. So, stop procrastinating and let’s do this!

Coaching for Lawyers + Setting Prices for Legal Services

Look. Let’s be honest. Being a lawyer can really suck sometimes.

Sure, it can be great when we get a win or someone recognizes all our hard work. But overall, it’s a lot of working too much, sacrificing our personal time and dreams, working ourselves to death for our name on the wall, and overall, it’s filled up with angry, frustrated, sad, depressed people. That’s tough to be around day in and day out.

One of the top reasons I left the law? I was tired of getting yelled at. I get it – 100%.

So, whether you’re thinking of leaving your firm, opening a new firm or maybe leaving law altogether, I teach you the tools you need to be successful and reach that end goal.

Here’s a hint: what you think you want is probably different than what you actually want. And that’s why you need to work with me. I cut through the “coulda, woulda, shoulda” and get you to the heart of you – and where you want to go.

My process is simple. I work directly with you to walk you through the proven, in-depth and creative processes that I’ve been building and using for my own business and my clients for 20+ years.


Over a six-week period, through one-on-one sessions, I guide you through specific and structured steps designed to identify issues that are holding you back and to help get you exactly where you want to go – whatever that looks like. Our one focus? YOU.

You’re not a cookie-cutter lawyer and you shouldn’t get treated like one. My process adapts to whatever you need and helps you get where you want to go.

Together, we walk through the steps of “figuring it out” – whatever “it” is – so you can get past “it” and get happy … maybe by starting down the path to make the money you dream of, branch out on your own to hang your own shingle, negotiate a raise or better benefits, or start to live your life in a way that you want.

Whatever your end goal, my process will leave you confident about:

  • what you bring to the table
  • overcoming the barriers to your own success
  • transforming your perceived weaknesses into opportunities
  • living for your life, and not only for your legal career or your firm

At the end of the process, you’ll have an intuitive, realistic and easy-to-follow 10-Year Plan with all the tasks and time periods set up to make that happen.

The best part? You’ll immediately have action steps to start on your path.

The 10-Year Plan can be for whatever you want – business, personal, professional – so you know where you’re going, how you’re going to get there!

I want to help you put yourself first. Build the life you want. That way, you can be there for others when they need you. As a lawyer, this last part is super important.

I take people where they are, with all their good, bad and uglies … you are who you are.

Together, we’ll determine where you want to go and I’ll be there the whole way to help you build that plan! You’ve got this! And better yet, you’ve got ME. Let’s set up a time with me to talk about what success looks like for you.


We’ve all been there … maybe you’re brand new, or have been feeling resentment towards your clients, knowing or thinking you don’t charge enough. Or, maybe you’re insecure, unsure, and concerned about getting a scary “NO” from someone about hiring you. Or, maybe, you just need confirmation of what you’re charging is the RIGHT amount. You might find yourself asking:

  • What services should I offer?
  • I hate doing {_____}! But what if I don’t do {_____}? Will I be able to be successful?
  • Shouldn’t I just take everything that walks in the door to keep things afloat?
  • How much do I charge?
  • How do I make the money I want?
  • If only I could find that sweet spot to make the right amount of money with the right amount of clients … but is that possible? (hint: the answer is YES!)

All of these thoughts and questions are NORMAL for any solo lawyer.

And these thoughts and questions don’t just happen to newbies … even veteran solos ask these questions.

So, we created a tool that helps you set your prices and then check your gut. It’ll provide you with clarity and confidence and once you do it, you’ll have your first (or maybe last!) fee schedule! Yes, it really is as simple as that.


Do you want to work more efficiently, with less effort and with the ability to stay one step ahead of the competition or your to-do list? If you answered “yes,” then take a look at our Time Management and Organizational Assistance page, then contact us and we’ll help you move toward that goal.

Okay. Seriously. You’ve read enough.

You know what you want. So let’s get to it!
