Serving the
Disability Community

"Everybody comes to a point in their life when they want to quit, but it's what you do at that moment that determines who you are."
~ David Goggins

 

The first premise of a coaching model is that you, the client, will continue to do at least  some of the work yourself. My job as a lawyer-coach is to equip you to take the next steps yourself.

This combines legal knowledge with procedural know-how; attention to obscure details that lawyers understand to be important; strategic and savvy advocacy tools (now shared with you); and my experience and understanding of how conflict develops and might be resolved.

Bottom line, legal coaching is essentially just what it sounds like – having a lawyer available to “coach” (teach, show, assist) you with everything from preparing, filing and serving documents; presenting yourself in court; courtroom advocacy and managing conflict and still getting what you want.
