Summary: Lawyers need coaches to not only be better at their job, but to keep doing their job like everyone else.
Lawyers have a difficult career. They are often required to work long hours on complex cases for clients that only want the best results. Because of these pressures, many lawyers find themselves not enjoying their work and seeking out a career coach to find the inspiration to enjoy their profession once more.
Professional Lawyer Coach Daniel Roberts offers advice for lawyers to help them achieve their professional goals and increase their success as an attorney. Roberts provides weekly tips on his website and updates to the blog every few months.
Roberts practiced law for 25 years as an associate, solo practitioner, and law firm partner in many different law practice areas such as litigation, corporate, and personal injury. This experience enables him to understand what lawyers are struggling with most and how to help. In 1997 he started Coaching for Lawyers because he was ready for a career change. He studies coaching methodology at Coach U and earned a certification by the International Coach Federation as a Professional Certified Coach.
On the blog, one of the recent articles is on what litigators should do if they no longer enjoy their job. Roberts does not encourage lawyers to quit their jobs until they have exhausted all their options. He understands there are a lot of negatives to the job, but there are usually a lot of positives as well.
LawCrossing has the most listings of any job board I have used. It's actually a great site. The website had a lot of detail. It’s nice that you don't have to go through a recruiter if you don't want to. You can actually contact the law firm directly for the positions listed. LawCrossing had a ton of great features.
