I get so many questions around podcasting from other lawyers on how to start one, how it works, and what it looks like, all that good stuff, so I thought about doing a whole masterclass with none other than my own editor, Mark McDonald.

I really had to hear the phrase “you are not alone” multiple times, like multiple times, in order to really feel like I was not alone.

I am willing to bet that all lawyers have, at some point, gone through an internal crisis of whether they should really stay in the law. And many times, most times, we stay in the law because we don’t know what else to do. We just feel like this is what we’re supposed to do. It feels scary even thinking about making a change when you have all the t…

You may or may not know Jesse Cooke from his famous historical posts on LinkedIn, and I invited him to be interviewed on my show because he is one of the very few people who doesn't talk about anything related to the law.

I’ve always been curious about creating your own firm, but so far I have only met those who went directly from a larger firm to creating their own and doing so intentionally.

I remember when I used to intern at a criminal defense attorney’s office, and man, it was a lot of work.

So what does it really look like to be a criminal de…

I’ve been trying to start the conversation on when our mental health does not have anything to do with the profession. Because too many times we are demonizing the profession as the one and only source of mental health problems, but when we assign blame and responsibility to one thing that we do not mostly have control over, we give it more power a…
