Work-Life Balance Seminar (Ethics CLE, usually 3 hours)

Upcoming Dates:  To be determined.

 

Seminars to help you stay fresh, open-hearted and effective for yourself and your clients.

Advocates must sustain hope and keep life in balance to be happy and effective. More technical information is not useful if you are too burned out to use it. Dawn has spent 25 years in a law practice that is stressful and often sad, yet she is not burned out. Dawn will share the practical tools that work for her and offer frank advice on creation of your own toolbox.

A funny, creative and inspiring approach to not just keep your head above water, but to sometimes dance a bit of water ballet.

 

Law practice management for solo practitioners and very small firms (Ethics CLE, usually 3 hours)

Upcoming Dates:  To be determined.

So you didn’t have a firm or mentor to teach you how this law profession/business is supposed to go. Your work life is not the glamorous practice you envisioned, and you are both tired and tired of pretending. Maybe you aren’t even sure this is the right job for you. If only someone who has figured out how to happily make a living practicing law would sit you down and frankly tell you all their secrets, mistakes and advice. If only they would create an environment where you didn’t have to pretend that you know all this already and could ask your real questions. This is that.

Testimonials

Comments from past seminar attendees

 

 

" Contrary to popular belief, adoption law isn’t as cut and dry as it may seem. Adoptions and termination of parental rights can be full of nuance and pitfalls that the ill informed may not anticipate.  Dawn’s seminar goes the extra mile to fill in the gaps and provide a roadmap for a successful and adept adoption practice."
- John F. Weaver, Jr.
