What is NLPG?

Perhaps you graduated from law school several years ago and now have decided you want to go out on your own. Or you’ve gotten to the point where you’re overwhelmed with all the things you have on your plate. You want to expand, but can’t even get the time to think about it.

When you started, you were excited about being on your own, but all of a sudden you had to think about the business of running a practice. You realized very quickly that law school had taught you the law, but you felt unprepared to run a business.

You learned case law and how to make an argument in law school, but they didn’t teach all the things that keep businesses in business.

I wanted to create a collegial and collaborative forum for experienced estate planning attorneys to make their practices enjoyable and rewarding using business ideas to transform their practices so they can make an impact on the lives of the clients they serve, be profitable and still maintain an enriched work life balance.

We started Next Level Peer Group because we wanted to address these issues so that you can enjoy your practice again and not feel like you are endlessly underwater.

Through NLPG you can find out what other attorneys are doing to expand and grow their practices, and may find out that others are in the same boat.

We help lawyers transform their practices by having a collaborative forum to discuss issues that come up that you may not be sure how to handle.
