The inspiration for Attorney With A Life* emerged from my coaching practice and years of working in law firms. Law is a marathon profession broken up by periods of sprinting. I see so many great lawyers, people who are called to the practice for good reasons – intellectual challenge, values, abilities – but who are struggling with stress, anxiety, over work, and a myriad of other challenges. I know that it is possible to have a full and rewarding life as a lawyer and that this is made difficult by a numerous external and internal challenges. And I also know that every lawyer holds within their own hands the opportunity for having a rewarding and fulfilling life, and that uncovering and accessing those opportunities is easier with help. That’s what Attorney With A Life is all about.
Attorney With A Life brings together a team of lawyers, coaches, consultants, counsellors, and other professionals collaborating to bring valuable information and insights to you through one shared channel – Attorney With A Life.

*For my fellow Canadians, this site is also for you lawyers. I know “attorney” isn’t a word we use but I liked how it worked with the acronym “AWAL” and imagine all of us going happily “AWAL”.
