  • 1:1 business and accountability coaching with a dedicated coach, or

What Our Labsters Are Saying About Lawyerist Lab

I was feeling hopeless. My prior coach was out of ideas on how I could generate more leads, find more referrals, and be more successful in my intake calls.

After just one meeting with my Lab coach, I was able to see a difference. I was able to pursue paths that I thought were closed to me. They showed me how to look at my situation differently.

Now, I have strategies in place for hiring, for trying out new offerings, for approaching new clients. Everything I do in my business is different because of the coaching I've received at Lawyerist.

I worked with my coach to develop a plan to revise our billing system in a way that was more compatible with our practice instead of the "old" way of billing everyone at once. We found a pattern that works for us.

Today, we are in the black and I feel like we're in control of our cash flow. I'm happy to report that "dialing for dollars" is a thing of the past!

I was at an impasse in figuring out how to expand my team effectively.

My coach took the time to get to know my unique practice and helped support me in developing an approach to hiring and training that is more in line with how I do business. 

I feel like I'm on the right path now, and I have a better understanding of why and how the HR strategies I'm using fit into my business model. I appreciate my coach's ability to listen and understand the challenges I'm facing, and then provide feedback that is both holistic and tailored to me and my firm.

We conquered more than 2 years of soul-crushing backlogs in some of our pre-pandemic and pandemic-era estate and trust administration and estate planning projects within 11 months of joining Lawyerist Lab.

Key systems improvements and the realignment of team member roles within their strengths and our core values have helped us trim project completion times in some bottlenecked areas from multiple months to a few days.

One of the fruits of our Lawyerist coaches’ encouragement and guidance is our team members’ impromptu statements that they’ve never looked forward to coming to work in the morning as much as they do now.
