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.

I wish I had met Greg Yates sooner. I came out of Cornell Law School in 1984. And even though I was very ‘successful,’ the nearly three decades I spent as a trial lawyer never deeply satisfied me. Greg is a powerful speaker, trainer and coach; he understands well this predicament. As advisor and mentor, as someone who has walked his talk, he can guide you along the path to real professional fulfillment. Our lives are way too short to muddle through in work that doesn’t rock our world. If you’re not waking up every day excited and on fire about your life and your profession, you need Greg.


If you’ve ever dreamt about pursuing a career that truly spoke to you, Greg will inspire you to stop considering and start doing. His own personal stories resonated so much with me…that outside appearances of success are sometimes not enough and the wisdom you’ve gained from years of experience can serve others and yourself by pursuing something that is true to your talents, ethics and passions. Greg’s dry wit, amazing honesty and personal success will help you make the positive changes that are uniquely right for you.

After I heard Greg speak I felt more committed than ever to pursuing my dreams and not allowing my fears to stand in my way. He tells the story of how he decided to give up the trappings of success in exchange for a more uncertain path … but one that is leading to personal satisfaction and significance. He inspired me with his courage and charmed me with his honesty and wit.

The hard truths behind Greg’s outwardly stellar success as a highly paid New York City attorney at the top levels of the corporate ladder provide a rare insight into the reality of the emptiness and frustration that greet so many who reach these lofty heights.

Greg’s compelling use of a theater metaphor was a powerful and ironic window to hear the story of his rise to a corner office overlooking Broadway’s theater district and how easily compromise and disengagement can derail genuine success on our own terms.

By giving us solid pillars on which to base a more honest and fulfilling life, Greg gave us both the why and the how to make simple, do-able shifts that in many cases will be literally life-saving.

Greg Yates is a public speaker using his humanity and humility in many different contexts. He is equally comfortable as a public speaker talking to hundreds of people in a keynote address or guiding a handful of people in focused workshops.
