Lawyers, Imagine a 

Fulfilling Career With 

Less Stress and Anxiety, and More Autonomy and Meaning

You hate what you're doing! You're unhappy, burned out, and uninspired. Either stressed to the max or bored to tears, sometimes both. You lack control over your life and don’t have any autonomy.


A 2020 ALM survey of over 3,800 lawyers found 31.2% felt depressed, 64% had anxiety, 10.1% felt they had an alcohol problem, and 2.8% had a drug problem.


Further, Prudential’s Pulse of the American Worker Survey conducted in March 2021 found 1 in 3 Millennials are planning to look for a new job with a different employer once the pandemic is no longer an issue.

Why I Focus on Lawyer Career Transitions

After years of practicing in Big Law, in-house, and with a boutique firm, I realized my calling was to serve other attorneys and professionals by helping them in the career transition process.


I assist other lawyers and professionals who desire but don’t know how to:


• advance along their current career path to achieve their professional goals and to develop more business


• move their practice to another law firm or go in-house


• become an entrepreneur, either inside or outside the legal industry


• leave the law to pursue an alternative career for lawyers path


Since I,


• understand the changing landscape of the legal industry and know the high pressure and stress faced by many lawyers


• experienced, both myself and through countless stories from others, the professional and personal struggles (alcohol and drug addiction, depression, and anxiety) many lawyers face, and


• have been through the lawyer career transition process quite a few times myself,


I serve lawyers from a unique position.


This perspective permits me to help lawyers in their career transitions to achieve professional and personal successes exceeding their wildest dreams and aspirations.

Career Transition Expense Calculator

The Quick Expense Budget Calculator below allows you to do a fast analysis of all your expenses. It is important to be thorough in this analysis. Examining the past few months bank and credit statements closely will likely remind you of expenses you may have forgotten.


All household expenses should be recorded. Be brutally honest. You may be surprised at how much you spend on certain items. "We spent how much on takeout and delivery?!" and "Are we trying to support Jeff Bezos by ourselves?! are likely reactions.


Once you have clarity on your expenses, you can see where reductions and cuts can be made. Every expense may be a potential tradeoff for a better career and life. 


If necessary, and it may not be, what tradeoffs in reduced expenses are you and your family willing to make for better, more meaningful work with more autonomy and less stress, anxiety, and boredom? For more balance in your work and life and increased time for yourself, your family, and your friends?

The Problem

Many attorneys mistakenly believe they will never be able to make as much money doing anything else other than practicing law.


Unfortunately, this belief results in lawyers feeling trapped. This is especially lethal for those who are already stressed, anxious, or burnt out.


Even if transitioning lawyers are not able to make as much in their first transition position, they can usually increase their income fairly quickly.


In any event, money is not everything. Meaningful work with autonomy and reduced stress and anxiety have significant value. And, there is always the value of more time with family and friends.

The Solution

One of the first things lawyers considering a career transition need to do is get clarity on their financial life.


While many, although certainly not all, lawyers earn a significant income, it's the expense side of the ledger that should be focused on first.


Most of us expand our lifestyle and expenses in relation to our income. If you are considering a career transition where your income may decline, at least initially, closely examining all of your expenses, fixed and variable, is imperative. 


Once you have clarity on your expenses, it is much easier to make decisions on what expenses may be cut or reduced if your income declines.
