Law school is only the first step towards a
fulfilling career, as it only teaches law students how to think like lawyers.
Without being provided a roadmap for how to maintain a satisfying and
successful career, many recent law graduates find themselves feeling stuck,
unsatisfied, and unable to better their career. Author
Dena Lefkowitz bridged that gap for herself, has taught these missing lessons
to hundreds of lawyers as a professional coach, and laid out her processes and
techniques in this book. In Winning in Your Own Court, she shares
10 laws she developed during her 20-plus years as a successful attorney and
subsequently as a coach. Lefkowitz shares client stories about lawyers
who struggled with business development, who weren't making partner and didn't
know why, who were encountering career dilemmas, who were unhappy in the law,
and who loved what they did but didn't know how to get to the next level. She
then helped them build a book of business, make partner in their firm, achieve more
in their practice, or even make a transition to another career. She and they
did it all using the techniques presented in this book. Feeling stuck in your career? Just graduated
and no idea how to start? Wanting to make partner and needing an edge? Winning
in Your Own Court
offers guidance and models for any legal career
transformation, even if it means starting over.

You will learn how to assess where you are,
determine what needs to change to get where you want to be and create a plan to
do so. Every situation has its a solution, and you will learn how to find
yours. And, then you can do it whenever your career needs a tune-up. Whatever
your next move is, Winning in Your Own Court will help you get
you there.
