FAQ

I want you to have all of your questions answered before we begin working together. In addition to scheduling a free consultation with me where I can answer questions specific to your situation, I want to make sure you have all of the information you need to decide if coaching is right for you. Here are answers to the most frequently asked questions I receive: 

The sooner the better! The earlier you can find your place in Biglaw, the better experience you will have and the easier it will be to define your own career path instead of what Biglaw wants for you. And, the sooner you resolve any issues that come up, the better off you’ll be. 

That being said, I work with lawyers at all stages of their Biglaw careers. If you are a mid- or even senior-level lawyer who wants to gain focus and clarity on their career, you can still join Biglaw Bootcamp – we will tailor our sessions to your particular needs. 

WHAT STAGE IN YOUR BIGLAW CAREER SHOULD YOU BE IN TO JOIN THE BIGLAW BOOTCAMP? 

Yes. I created Biglaw Bootcamp specifically for Biglaw junior lawyers. While lots of working environments are challenging, Biglaw is unique. 

If you are a law student interested in learning more about Biglaw before you dive in (which I highly recommend – Biglaw is not for everyone, and you should know what you are getting into before you sign up for it) or applying for Biglaw summer associate positions, check out my 1-1 sessions. I offer a discounted rate for students for these 1-hour coaching sessions, and also provide resume review and mock interviews if requested.

What do you mean I have all of the answers inside of me already?

Absolutely! These are the most common issues my clients face, but your program will be tailored to your needs. So if you have a very specific issues you’re facing, a unique situation, or want to spend all six sessions on one topic, we can absolutely do that. Schedule a consultation and we’ll discuss how I can help you. If I can, during our first session we’ll map out a game plan tailored just for you. 

I have other needs/areas of concern not listed here. Can we still work together? 

This program is for all Biglaw associates looking for that leg-up. It’s not for those who desperately want to get out of Biglaw. If that’s you, check out Biglaw Detox, where we work together to get you out of Biglaw. 

Who is this program for? Who isn’t it for?

But if you are a Biglaw lawyer who wants OUT, then check out Biglaw Detox – that’s the right coaching program for you! 

I have found that six sessions is the minimum needed to tackle all of the issues Biglaw associates face and really set them on the right path. However, if you have just one topic you wanted to work through or only have time for one session, you can book a one-hour session here. 

After signing up for Biglaw Bootcamp, we’ll work together to come up with a schedule for our sessions that works for us both. While I find that meeting weekly keeps the momentum, if you prefer to meet every two weeks, we can also do that. 

Can we meet more/less than the 6 sessions? Less often than once a week? 

I understand the realities of Biglaw. If work gets crazy and you tell me you absolutely cannot meet, I totally get it. While I hope that you will make coaching a priority because it really will transform your Biglaw experience, if you’re closing a deal, heading to trial, haven’t seen your children in a week, or any of the myriad ways Biglaw can interfere with your life, I understand. We’ll reschedule our session. Just be sure to let me know 24-hours in advance.  

What if I get really busy at work? Can we reschedule our calls?
