Lead Mentor Attorney
Would you like to use your expert knowledge and experience as an estate planning attorney, talent for teaching complicated concepts simply, and your encouraging nature to help other lawyers transform their practices? Do you have a passion for practicing law differently than the “old business model” of billable hours or undervalued flat fees? Are you happiest when balancing several varied projects at once? And do you thrive when you get to use all parts of your brain when initiating and fully executing projects, leveraging your creativity, organization skills, verbal and written communication skills, presentation, analysis, and more?
