I’m multi-passionate, though, so that’s not all that I do. I’m living proof that it’s possible to leave Biglaw and find your true calling. I’m evidence (and don’t we lawyers love evidence?) that you really can “do anything with a law degree” – for many of us, it just takes some time, soul searching, and a real commitment to figure it all out.
I used to be a Biglaw lawyer, but nowadays, I spend my time and am most fulfilled by coaching lawyers in the thick of their Biglaw careers and transitioning out of them, as well as law students interested in pursuing Biglaw.
The good news is, the power to do so lies within you. I’m here to help you gain insights and perspective, and be held accountable for the changes you seek. I believe that all of my clients have the answers within them. I’m here to ask you the right questions and be your guide on your way to change.
When I began working in Biglaw, I was just as lost as some of you are. I had been successful all of my life, excelling in law school and landing a coveted Biglaw job in NYC. I had a closetful of suits (that I soon realized I would hardly ever need to wear), a drawer stuffed with pantyhose (which I definitely never needed to wear), and thousands of dollars in student loan debt.
I’m a Biglaw career coach now, but let’s rewind a few years. From 2010 to 2018, I was an associate at a top-20 international law firm in New York City.
HOW I GOT HERE
I was finally a real lawyer, but I certainly didn’t feel like one. Maybe you can relate to the beginning of my Biglaw career:
My one regret from those years is that I did not leave Biglaw when I should have. I didn’t recognize the early signs of burnout. I didn’t take the time to slow down and assess my career and goals. I didn’t have any goals other than to survive and meet my billable hour requirements. That’s not the way to go about a Biglaw career.
Time was marching on, my career was progressing, but I no longer wanted to be there. I also had no idea where else to go and I was officially stuck.
Sound familiar? Lots of lawyers stay in this stuck zone for way too long. They wait until they reach their breaking point or total burnout, and then leave. That’s what happened to me.
