I have been working with Family Lawyers and Collaborative Professionals across the US and UK for almost 20 years. My goal is to help family lawyers take control of their practice for future success-to create a truly rewarding practice that is not only profitable, but fulfilling too. My clients are lawyers who are committed to producing exceptional value for their clients and want to build a practice that is in alignment with their core values, strengths, interests and priorities. By helping family lawyers to explore what matters most, I want to inspire lawyers to redefine how they experience marketing. Rather than being a distracting task, it becomes a core activity- focusing on client education, problem solving, strengthening relationships and extending networks. I want lawyers who are passionate about making a long-term positive difference for their clients to be widely successful in growing their practice.
Existing delegate feedback
Liz is great. I cannot imagine why everyone did not attend her session. Her presentation was invaluable.
If this seminar were offered again, I would attend and encourage other to do so.
Every Collaborative Law person should take this course.
Please offer this again. The session flew by. Can never get enough marketing thoughts and strategies. Well-done Liz
This should be an annual seminar. It helps us measure our growth and develop strategies for promoting Collaborative Law through our states and countries.
