Founder, Leave the Law Coach
I like to joke that I went to law school for the simple reason that I was a Jewish kid who didn't like blood ... so I decided to attend law school, and not medical school! That's about as critically as I thought about becoming a lawyer! I left the law in 2004 after focusing on software licensing, mainly because I found the practice of law to be very reactive and always about putting out fires. I also never considered myself that good of a lawyer. Since then, from my home base in San Francisco, I've been on a mission to help other unhappy, unfulfilled attorneys create their own alternative, dream careers out of the law like I have.
Leave the Law Coach
I practiced law for over 20 years in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, across the areas of commercial real estate closings, real estate litigation, business law and family law to name a few. I built a very successful law practice, but realized I liked the business of building a firm more than practicing law. I also found the practice of law to be so overwhelming and stressful, that it began to impair my health - I was rushed to the hospital three times for stress-related incidents! So I left the law and have been writing and speaking ever since on life purpose, career change and entrepreneurship from my horse ranch near Asheville.

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