Here at Gillman Strategic Group we work with law firm partners that have a significant book of portable business.
While we only work directly with rainmakers, we do meet many other attorneys all the time, and while we can’t directly support them, we do have resources to help them.
If you are one of these lawyers, or you know someone that our resources could help, we invite you to browse the page and use whatever works for you.

Sometimes coaching can help you to succeed in your current role or even to help you identify if you want to change career paths.
First, it is worth reaching out to your law school’s career center. Even if you graduated 20 years ago, they often have resources available to alumni.
I also recommend Wendy Schult, The Authenticity Coach. She helps high achievers explore, vet and clarify their own definition of success, figure out what is getting in the way and create tactical, practical plans to make their dreams a reality. You can learn more about Wendy at Keys to Authenticity here.
