"I was an employment lawyer - I had become disillusioned and disappointed with practicing law after seeing so many "wrongs" about the legal system.
NLBM maximizes everything that is good about practicing law. It restores my belief that this is an important profession that provides resources to people who really need what we do. I now feel like I get to use valuable skills with the certainty that I am helping people every single day.
Beyond practicing law, the coaches and mentors have given me new and much-improved perspective about why and how to balance practicing law and enjoying time not practicing law. More specifically, I have learned that I am a much better lawyer when I spend more time enriching my life through ways other than being a lawyer.
I just began [serving clients virtually], and my first potential ‘virtually served’ client hired me for $5,000."
