There's a widely held belief among female attorneys that to succeed professionally they must become a partner in a law firm or a general counsel at a large company. But why? Many female attorneys will have as much (if not more) happiness and success with a less traditional job: one that's less stressful, allows for more time to spend with their families, or provides more opportunities to work on meaningful projects. Lifestyle Lawyer addresses the special challenges and opportunities female attorneys face in this new legal environment, both at work and in their personal lives.

Section 1 of the book guides the transformation process so you can:

  • Identify where you are in your lawyer path
  • Discover how technology can help you transform your career
  • Learn to shape your own path--one that matches your personal goals
  • Establish what's important to you-your values, your vision at work and at home
  • Uncover ways to distinguish yourself from your peers
  • Leverage networking to establish yourself as an expert

Section 2 looks at six different career paths for attorneys:

  • The law firm path
  • The corporate path
  • The solo-practitioner & legal consultant path
  • The alternative legal services provider path
  • The eDiscovery path
  • The cybersecurity & privacy path

My hope is this book will help women lawyers find a voice, find a position within the new legal market, and find the courage and knowledge to use their law degree and stay in the practice of law.
