Are you an unhappy attorney struggling to live the life you truly want?

Do you feel like you're trapped in the practice of law and have no way out?


You're not alone. Studies show 56% of lawyers are frustrated with their careers but don't know what to do.


That’s where we come in. Leave Law Behind is a coaching program for lawyers who want to leave the practice of law and pursue a different career path.


Click to play the video, or read further down below, to learn more about how we can help you.



First, let's dispel a few common myths and misconceptions that are likely holding you back from leaving the legal profession for a new career.



1. I feel that I'll never be able to make as much money as I do now as an attorney. 


The funny thing is that while lawyers can be paid well, we actually don't make that good of money. It reminds me of a story.


I had a plumber come to my home and fix my sink. The plumber charged me $95. I then did the math: If a lawyer made $200,000 a year (which is a good salary) and billed 2,000 hours, that comes to $100 per hour. The attorney is making the same, per hour, as my plumber. And no knock on plumbers, but they don't have nearly the stresses  a lawyer has, from law school debt to trial timelines to the fiduciary duty and fear of malpractice.


And there are so many other way to make money in the world besides the billable hour: salary, commission, stock options, contingent payments, licensing fees, product sales, affiliate partnerships, you name it.



2. I don't want to regret my decision. What if I don't like this new "alternative" job? 


You are not going to quit your lawyer job tomorrow and take the first job you see. You're careful, risk averse and thoughtful.


As you begin to consider to leave the law, you'll first assess what you're good at and enjoy doing. Then you'll find jobs that align with your skills and strengths. Then you'll find people you know in these jobs to learn more about them and confirm you like the role and can be good at it before you apply.


3. Even though I'm miserable practicing the law, I'm not a quitter. I don't want to throw away all of the work I put into law school and my attorney career and have to start over.


We understand that you have put a lot into becoming a lawyer. And the great thing is that they weren't lying when they said that "you can do anything with a law degree." What they forgot to tell you is how.


How you leave the law is to first realize that all that you've learned as an attorney (how to manage clients, how to put out fires, how to be the adult in the room, how to manage cases on time and on budget, how to write and speak persuasively) are all skills that are in demand in "non-law" jobs. They are not only required to be a lawyer.


And leaving the law is by no means quitting. It's actually the natural progression of your career. This is stage two of your life. That's very exciting.


4. I don't want to disappoint people around me. What will my friends and family and colleagues and my spouse think of me if I were to leave the law?


Let us ask you ... what do they think of you now? Sure, they may think of you as a prestigious lawyer. But if you've been honest in the past and opened up to any of them, they know that you're miserable as an attorney.


If they are true friends and family, all they want you to be is happy. And if they do seem to be disappointed, remember that it's not their life, it's yours. The'll get over it ... or they'll secretly envy you that you had the courage to make this leap and change your life for the better.




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 5 module program 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.


Here's how it works:


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 5-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.


2. What are my strengths?


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


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, "non-law" job resumes and cover letters for you to download and begin using.




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.




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.)




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.
