“B” is for Branding for the 21st Century Lawyer

To maximize your profit or return as a lawyer, you need to figure out the best work for you, and that takes time and involves personal considerations. The smartest thing you can do, in my opinion, is to invest in your brand as a 21st Century Lawyer.

A is for “Adapting” to the Client Interview

There is one struggle that transcends my coaching clients – both seasoned and new lawyers: how to relate to a prospective client on a human level in an initial interview.

Z is for “Zapping” Your Schedule for Success

There are only 24 hours in a day. Time is a finite resource. While it’s possible to squeeze out a few more hours of work, we need to trade that time in for something else.

X is for that “X-Factor” in Your Next Interview

“W” is for “Waiting” for That Ideal Job Offer

A few of my clients have recently turned down job offers. “Why would they do that?” you may be thinking… Simply put: because the offers weren’t a good match!

I would like share my deep thanks for Paulette and her amazing work that she has done with me in the last few months.  My firm hired her to assist with improving client retention rates and understanding possible causes and come up with solutions.  Paulette was insightful, thought outside the box and provided a holistic approach to the obstacles at hand.  Her ideas were not cookie-cutter but rather a blend of her own knowledge, experience as a lawyer herself and refreshing imagination.  The results that occurred after completing the journey with Paulette were off the charts.  I still use the methodology that I incorporated with Paulette and it is helpful in so many ways. I strongly endorse Paulette to anyone looking to reassess their law practice and find ways to overcome obstacles and deepen their understanding of how their practice can be improved. Paulette, you exceeded all expectations and I wish you strength and success to be able to help more lawyers and professionals as you helped me. end-quote
