My "lawyer" skills have been a perfect fit for these "non-law' jobs - I've been promoted three times and my career growth upside seems limitless. On top of that, I am a much happier, calmer and motivated person. I even look forward to work on Mondays!"

THE MYTHS AND MISPERCEPTIONS YOU HAVE ABOUT LEAVING THE LAW

As we discussed in depth in the above videos, having helped lots of attorneys to leave the practice of law for their dream jobs in the last few years, we are very familiar with the myths and misperceptions that block attorneys like you from moving into a "non-law" career that you love and are good at.


BUT THESE ARE JUST MYTHS...

There is nothing to fear, we have it covered in every way!

It turns out, most unhappy lawyers are looking at their situation all wrong. 

 

The only thing standing between you and your dream job out of the law is this set of myths, doubts, worries, and fears that are normal ... but crippling. And the good news is, totally avoidable.

 

Now, yes, for many people, switching jobs is tough, if not impossible if you do not have someone to guide you through the process.

 

While many professionals, and especially attorneys like you, may feel bored or frustrated or anxious with their current job, research shows they don't even know where to begin to find a career they love.

They may feel that their skills and strengths, what they know to do, won't be needed in their new job. In the seminal Harris Poll on career change, 40% of aspiring career shifters hesitated to make a change because they felt they did not know what career they would want to change to.

 

Or you may feel you'll have to start from scratch and take a pay cut in an entry level position. Or have to go back to school to get a new degree or certification. In that same Harris poll, 37% of aspiring career shifters hesitated to make a change due to perceived insufficient qualifications to change.

 

And you may struggle with the guilt that the work you've poured into your law degree and attorney career has all been for naught. Although the majority of workers polled by Harris said they had career plans when they were younger, 73% felt that they had not landed in the job they had expected.

 

For many people switching careers, this can be very, very hard.

 

But as an attorney looking to leave the law, this doesn't need to be difficult for you.

 

As a lawyer looking to leave the law, you're actually primed to move beyond these myths and worries and make an upwards move into other fields.

 

Let me tell you the three reasons why:

 

Reason #1: Your Skills Are In Demand Right Now

 

… among many other things. 

 

All of this is needed in the universe of "non-law" jobs. 

 

Jobs like Chief Operating Officer, and Account Manager, and Chief of Staff and Business Development, and Marketing and Sales Optimization, and Organizational Effectiveness and Chief Culture Officer are all roles that your skills can be a fit with.

 

 

Of course there may be more requirements, and they can vary from job to job … but when you match your skill set to this role, as an example, one message becomes resoundingly clear:

 

You can do this job! Your skills match this job.

 

 

Reason #2: What You Don't Know ... You Can Learn Very Quickly

 

Now, let's be real. If you were to leave your law practice for a new "non-law" job, you would not know everything for that job from Day 1. 

 

And that's fine, because as a lawyer, you can learn things very quickly.

 

This reminds me of a story of one of our grads who used Leave Law Behind to find his dream job, Gabe Rothman.

 

Gabe was in construction litigation in San Francisco and was not enjoying being a lawyer (read: he hated it!)

 

Through the Leave Law Behind course, he began to understand what he was really good at (what we call your "Unique Genius"): Gabe loved processes.

 

He loved sketching out the steps to achieve a result, mapping out all of the contingencies, getting clear on all of the "if X, then Y" steps.

 

With this in mind, he began to apply to software consulting roles, where this skill could be put to use. He interviewed with a company called BlueWolf that helped other organizations to launch their Salesforce.com implementation.

 

The BlueWolf hiring manager loved Gabe's personality, and really saw that his "lawyer" skills, as we discussed above, were transferable to this new consulting role. 

 

But his one objection was that Gabe knew nearly nothing about software, and in particular Salesforce.com technology.

 

Gabe responded that this was true (he did not have any recent Salesforce.com integration experience), but that he passed the California state bar exam with only two months of preparation, the most difficult bar exam in the country with a fail rate of over 60%. "I can learn Salesforce.com within 30 days, and be close to an expert in it in 3 months," he assured them.

 

Gabe was hired.

 

As a lawyer, you are constantly ramping up and becoming an expert on a new case or deal or transaction. You can learn any new industry and subject matter quickly.

 

 

Reason #3: Leaving the Law Has Been Done Before ... And We Have the Roadmap For You to Follow

 

There are many famous people who have left the law for successful "alternative" careers:

 

And at Leave Law Behind, we've helped many attorneys just like you to leave the law. Below is a sample of our success stories ... real people like you we've helped to leave the law:

 

 

... and many more. 

 

You have the skills, the intelligence and the precedent to leave the law for a "non-law" career. All you need is some guidance and the steps to take to get there. That's where Leave Law Behind comes in.

 

 


HOW THE LEAVE LAW BEHIND COURSE WORKS

 

 

Leave Law Behind is a coaching program that helps unhappy lawyers find and transition to their dream jobs in different fields. 

 

We take unhappy lawyers like you through a 10 module course to help you figure out how to overcome the blockers you have to leaving the law, understand what you are good at and how to provide value, how to pick a fulfilling career, and then transition to that dream job.

 

Instead of rash decisions, we help you take take calculated, strategic steps to determine the right “alternative” career for you.

 

Some of what you get when you join us:

 

You'll get live coaching from ex-attorneys who've been through the same struggles. 

 

You'll join a community of like-minded lawyers taking action and keeping each other accountable. 

 

At the core of the Leave Law Behind program is a 10-module course that will guide you through the three big questions that shape a healthy career move out of the law:

 

 

1. How do I overcome the fears and blockers preventing me from making the move?

 

Here, you'll identify the actual fears, beliefs and obstacles that are getting in the way of you making this positive life change. It could be your fear that your network isn't big enough. Or your fear that you'll never make money out of the law. Or it could be your fear of disappointing your family and friends.

 

We'll help you isolate the fear, shine a light on it and help you take the steps to move forward in spite of it. We will coaching you through twenty five of the fears we all have in leaving.  There is nothing to fear, we have the answers to all your questions and more!

 

2. What are my strengths?

 

Most lawyers have never fully explored what are their true skills, strengths and interests are, and do not know how their strongest traits are transferable to other fields and industries.

 

We'll guide you through a structured discovery and experimentation process (what we call your "Unique Genius") in order to find your biggest advantages and how they map to new careers and roles.

 

3. How do I make the jump from law to a new field? 

 

This is the scariest part for most attorneys. We'll show you how to leverage your best qualities (and legal experience) into a specialized role where you'll feel energized to go to work every day.

 

And we have done most of the heavy lifting for you - we have proven, in plain-English, "non-law" job resumes and cover letters for you to download and begin using.

TOGETHER WE CAN HELP YOU LEAVE YOUR LAW PRACTICE AND TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE FOR THE BETTER

Hi, we are Casey Berman and Adam Ouellette, former-attorneys-now-career-coaches at Leave Law Behind. And we are your teachers and guides to help you leave your law practice and land your dream, "alternative" career. 

 

We've both been called "crazy" and "irresponsible" to leave our successful respective law practices ... but we each did so because we knew practicing the law was not a fit for us, did not make us happy and even was bad for our health. And we also realized that while you can make a good living as an attorney, you can also make a lot more money (and help many more people) doing something else.

 

We have taken our 20+ years of experience in helping people leave the law, and packaged it all for you in the Leave Law Behind Career Coaching Program.

 

To let you get to know us better, we shot the below short introductory videos. Click on them to get to know us, and why we created Leave Law Behind!

THE GOAL OF THE LEAVE LAW BEHIND PROGRAM IS TO HELP AND MOTIVATE YOU TO TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE

You may feel like you are all alone in your unhappiness as an attorney, but you are not. We are here to guide you through the process.

 

The Leave Law Behind program will rid you of the constant feelings of hopelessness, overwhelm, stress and loss of potential. 

Leave Law Behind will teach you how to change your mindset, overcome your fears of a new career, and know how to reposition yourself (and your resume and cover letter) to land that new, dream job you've always wanted (but didn't know how to identify or get).

 

 


NOT ENOUGH TIME? DON'T WORRY

Leave Law Behind is designed to fit neatly into your busy week as a busy lawyer (and parent and spouse and whatever other obligations you have). The modules provide the information in bite-sized chunks, that can be worked on in your spare time throughout your day. 

 

The program has been created to transform your life, not take it over. After all, we know you’re swamped with work as it is. The last thing you need is more of it.

Instead, think of this as a fun outlet. Something you can complete at your own pace, on your own time - in front of your computer or listening while you’re jogging or on your morning commute.  

 

Make no mistake. The Leave Law Behind program requires focus and dedication. But it doesn’t take a ton of time. If you commit to a few quality minutes a day or weekends or when you get home from work at night, this program will empower you to shift your way of thinking and leave the law.


WHAT YOU GET IN THE LEAVE LAW BEHIND PROGRAM

Remember those steps of the Program we showed you? Here they are, broken down into a ridiculous amount of detail.


WHAT IF YOU COULD LEAVE YOUR LAW PRACTICE AND FIND YOUR DREAM CAREER WITH THE HELP OF A PROVEN SYSTEM?

 

Leave Law Behind is the only online career coaching system for attorneys in the world that teaches you how to understand what you are really good at, so you can use these “transferable skills" of yours to leave your law practice and create your new “non-law” career. This is a one-of-a-kind training system for unhappy attorneys. 

 

This course clearly spells out and guides you through the exact five steps that have helped me and fifty other attorneys to finally leave the practice of the law, and what over 180 attorneys who are currently enrolled in the program are now using to find a new, "non-law" career.

 

After you sign up, you’ll get instant access to the Leave Law Behind program content. We specifically designed this as a modular, step-by-step course, where we give you bite-sized chunks of attorney specific career coaching information to review and digest ... along with follow up tasks so that taking action to change your life for the better is not only easy, but becomes an inspiring habit.

 

Leave Law Behind's video coaching lessons, worksheets and exercises guide you to overcome your fears of leaving the law, understand how you can find the salaries and compensation that fits your lifestyle needs, learn what you are actually good at to inform your career search, and align these transferable skills with a “non-law”, alternative career. 

 

By the end of Module 5 of the program, you’ll have a fully functioning plan to leave the law and land that new "alternative" career. I’ve packaged in the program all of my best kept self development and career search tactics and strategies that I’ve picked up since I left the law in 2004. That’s 15 years worth of experience, tips and techniques attorneys are using right now to go from unhappy practicing attorney to happy former lawyer. 

 

So if you're interested in leaving your law practice for the type of job you likely dreamed of before you took the LSAT, click the button below and enroll right now. We'll see you in there!
