Too many lawyers find themselves approaching the end of their careers trapped by choices they made when they were younger.

Younger lawyers could learn a lot from the remarks of their seniors:

  • "I don’t know if I can stand another day of this. I’d walk out tomorrow, but I just don’t know what I’d do with myself."
  • "I can’t afford to retire. What if I live to be ninety? I’d outlive my savings way before that."
  • "I’m having fun. I’m happy just to keep working forever."

This program is designed for attorneys at all stages and ages, especially mid-career attorneys who have the opportunity to strategically chart their own course toward retirement.

These planning skills learned are also useful as we advise clients on retirement and succession planning.

Whether just entering the workforce or in mid-career—we all need to learn to take care of the retired lawyer we will be someday.
