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. 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.

THE MYTHS AND MISPERCEPTIONS YOU HAVE ABOUT LEAVING THE LAW

Having helped upwards of 100 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.

 

You likely suffer from, and believe in, one or more of these myths, such as ...

  • The myth that your contact list is too small to help you network to find an alternative job
  • The myth that if you leave the law, you'll burn all your professional bridges
  • The myth that your professional and person identity is solely tied to being an attorney, and that you cannot do anything else
  • That myth that you are too old, and that it's too late for you to ever be considered for another career
  • That myth that you are too young to leave the law and you should at least practice the law for a few more years
  • The myth that if you leave the law, you're a "quitter" and you'll have to start from the bottom rung all over again in a new profession

... and many more


BUT THESE ARE JUST MYTHS...YOU ARE PERFECTLY READY NOW TO LEAVE THE LAW

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.

 

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 here 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 There is A 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 5 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.

 

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 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.

 

 


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.

 TESTIMONIALS

Gabe Rothman

Former construction litigator now Senior Director of Revenue Operations at Rescale, a cloud simulation technology platform company


"Casey is an amazing human being. Without him I would not have found the boldness and persistence to do the all of the things ultimately required for me to transition out of my litigation career. I’ve truly found my unique genius and I owe a huge amount of my new-found success and happiness to him."

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

How much time do I have to dedicate to this to be successful?

 

As much time as you want. That’s the beauty of the Leave Law Behind course.

 

Our goal with this course is to give you the structure, information, and tools you need to leave the law and create a “non-law, alternative” career that supports you and your lifestyle. 

 

But if you want to start out leaving the law in your free time (even if that's just 5 hours a week) then that is perfectly fine.

 

Sure, you'll advance quicker by investing more time and effort into leaving the law, but it's always better to build some momentum than to put it off and wait for the "perfect time." Because sadly, that perfect time will never happen. 

 

You can start leaving the law in your free time… whether that’s after work… or even on the weekends.

 

Eventually, you will gain more and more momentum in leaving the law, and in turn will tan to start dedicating a serious amount of time to it.

 

 

What if I have no idea what I’m good at? What if I have no idea what I could do in a “non-law” job?

 

You absolutely do NOT need to already know what you are good at to join the Leave Law Behind course. In fact, it might even be better if you don't have an idea yet of your transferable skills, because we'll make sure that your Unique Genius is primed for success (instead of setting you off on the wrong path).

 

In reality, each attorney has unique skills and strengths and enjoyments (what we call your Unique Genius) with which you can use to build a successful “non-law” career.

 

In fact, finding this "hidden in plain sight" Unique Genius is what we're best at. Just wait until you go through Module 4 of the course ...!
 

 

What if I have no experience with non-law careers, or self-development or career transition?

 

If you knew all that … what would you need the Leave Law Behind course for? 

 

We designed the program specifically so that it would work with unhappy attorneys leaving the law for the first time.

 

Now, at the same time, the material we cover inside the course is some of the most in-depth, advanced, and valuable material we have ever released.

 

But we made sure to include content that will get you up to speed in no time, even if you've never dabbled finding an “alternative” career.

 

In the Leave Law Behind course we give you the “formula” for things like overcoming your fears of leaving the law, how to feel more comfortable with a new professional identity, understanding your transferable skills and what “non-law” jobs are out there beyond transactional work and litigation roles. 

 

It’s as simple as following our step-by-step instructions in our videos and our worksheets that give you the exact actions to take.

 

 

What if I’m scared this while leave the law thing won’t work out? 

 

I get it. As lawyers, we are risk averse.    

 

But here’s the thing: You literally have nothing to lose and a whole new life to gain.    

 

You see, I’m not going to tell you to quit your job tomorrow in pursuit of your dreams, forget everything you learned in law school and go back to the drawing board. Quite the opposite.    

 

The Leave Law Behind course is about taking everything you already know and transitioning those skills into a job you love (that still pays what you need).

 

You’re not giving up your income to go chase a crazy dream. I’m going to be walking you through a proven 5-step process, and you can complete each step in your spare time.  

 

Besides that, I’ve already shown you proof that this course works for all kinds of lawyers in all stages of life.  This is your chance to say no more to Sunday night anxiety… doing work you don’t feel good about… appeasing the ego but feeling empty inside.

 

This is your chance to finally get the roadmap you need to design your dream life and finally create the freedom and fulfillment you deserve.    

 

 

What if I feel I need some one-to-one or group career coaching?

 

Personal Leave Law Behind coaching is always available. 

 

You can sign-up anytime, whenever you need it (for an additional fee) for one-to-one coaching with me, Casey, or attend one of our exclusive Leave Law Behind group Live Trainings & Office Hours.

 

 

What if a case or deal or other work takes up all my time and I have to take a break from studying?

 

Well, the beauty of Leave Law Behind Program is that it’s fully accessible from anywhere at anytime, and you can do it at your own pace.   

 

 

Do I get lifetime access to the the Leave Law Behind course?    

 

Yes, by signing up today at the Gold Level, you have lifetime access to the Leave Law Behind course. Or to say it another way, your access to the Program never expires. 

 

We will help you land “non-law job #1” … and then when you’re ready to grow, come and log back in to have us help you find “non-law job #2”.  

 

 

A 30-day guarantee ... is this really risk free?

 

Yes, joining the Leave Law Behind course is as risk free as possible.

 

We know what it feels like to be presented with a big opportunity like this. You’re interested, and it sounds great, but then there’s the risk: risk of losing money, risk of losing your time, and the risk of feeling embarrassed by getting “duped.”

 

Those are all real, legitimate worries. 

 

That’s why I insisted on having a solid guarantee. So that you have almost no risk… and… zero reason to let that risk stop you from taking action.

Now, you can try out our system without having that feeling of “Was this really a good idea?” hanging over your head.

 

You’ve got a full 30 day -- a full month -- to put our entire system into action… and start getting some results. Either our system works for you, or you pay nothing.  

 

 

Will I be guaranteed to leave the law?    

 

I can’t promise you specific results for your career change in a specific timeframe. Nobody can. And I’m not sure I’d trust anyone who does make this type of promise.

 

Why? 

 

Because I have no idea what level of experience you’re starting at. And I have no idea how much effort you’re going to put into this program. We all start this process at different stages, with different mindsets and different levels of energy and desire. If you’re disciplined, methodical, and follow the baby steps we’ve laid out, you will likely see results.  

 

What I can promise you is that with the Leave Law Behind course, you truly can leave your law practice for a “non-law” job career you love.  

 

But I can also promise you that if you purchase the program and never even spend a single hour going through the course, you aren’t going to make any progress in leaving the law and changing your life for the better. I hope that’s obvious.  

 

Like I said, this isn’t some “get rich quick” or scheme.   

 

It all comes down to taking action.

 

I'll say it again: You do have to put in effort if you want to see results with the Leave Law Behind course.   

 

The good news is it’s a lot easier to put in effort when you’ve got the help of a well-designed, premium step-by-step course that does the majority of the “heavy lifting” for you. 

 

 

What happens after I sign up?

 

After you enroll in the Leave Law Behind course, Gold members will get instant access to all of the course's content. Silver members will get access to the first month's content, and will receive the content monthly thereafter.

 

We specifically designed this as a 5 Module step-by-step course, where we give you bite-sized chunks of information to consume ... along with the necessary simple assignments so that taking action is not only easy ... but becomes a habit.
