According to its author Lee Holcomb, the focus of Lifestyle Lawyer: The Female Attorneys Guide to Designing a Law Career You Love is “to encourage lawyers to think about how technology is changing the legal landscape and how this actually might play to their advantage.” It addresses the question: “How can a female lawyer have a successful career and a life outside of the office?”

Here’s what others have to say:

LIFESTYLE LAWYER IS AN EXCELLENT RESOURCE TO HELP WOMEN ATTORNEYS NAVIGATE THE EVER-CHANGING (AND YET AT TIMES, RATHER STAGNATE) LEGAL INDUSTRY.

AS ONE OF THE EARLY PIONEERS OF “NEW LAW,” I TRULY WISH I HAD SOMETHING LIKE THIS TO HELP ME ALONG THE WAY.

RIGHT OUT OF LAW SCHOOL I WENT TO WORK WITH A LARGE AND PRESTIGIOUS LAW FIRM. HAD 3 CHILDREN THEN MOVED OVERSEAS TO WARSAW, POLAND WITH MY HUSBAND FOR HIS JOB. I HAVE NO REGRETS FOR TAKING THE 8YRS TO RAISE MY CHILDREN. GETTING BACK TO LAW AFTER 8YRS OUT HOWEVER WAS NOT EASY. SO I MOVED ON. I WAS LUCKY TO GET A DIRECTOR LEVEL NON-LEGAL JOB (MY LEGAL BACKGROUND HELPED) WITH A GLOBAL ORGANIZATION. HOLCOMB’S ADVICE IN LIFESTYLE LAWYER IS ON POINT, VALUABLE AND INSIGHTFUL. IN THE AFTER-LIFE OF LAWYERING, TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR NEXT CAREER AND MAKE IT ONE THAT INTERESTS YOU AND WORKS WITH YOUR LIFESTYLE. LIFESTYLE LAWYER WILL HELP YOU MAKE YOUR NEXT CAREER FIT INTO YOUR LIFE RATHER THAN THE OTHER WAY AROUND.
