Allison has been a fantastic resource for me moving from being a mid-level associate focused on file management to a senior position involved in file generation, leadership, and overall career planning. It has been a journey of both personal and professional development. Allison’s coaching style provides a relationship that empowers and supports me as a professional and holds me accountable for progress towards my goals. She balances accountability with understanding the nature of a busy practice.

The benefits I draw from the coaching program with Allison are:   

Getting helpful, individualized advice for setting goals.   

Getting concrete suggestions for how to meet my goals.  

Having periodic meetings with her helps keep me accountable and on track to meet my goals Getting sincere support and encouragement from her helps motivate me to be successful and helps me stay positive when I have the inevitable “I hate my job!” days.

Partner, IP Firm

Having a person who could act as an independent sounding board and guide was invaluable in helping me work through an extremely difficult decision as to the appropriate work/firm environment for me.

Despite an outwardly very successful career, I was so burned out in the rut in which I had found myself that a career at Starbucks was only half-jokingly on my list of possibilities.  

Along the way, Allison also helped me to develop some new skills that have been invaluable in making my decision a successful one, and her practice management and business development tips have helped to ensure that my personal practice is growing in a good way.  Sorry Starbucks but I am sticking with the practice of law!
