Serving the

"The best preparation for tomorrow is doing your best today."
H. Jackson Brown, Jr.


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.
