Get started now with LawLifeProfs.

Our introductory coaching package occurs over five sessions. During these sessions, we explore your personal story, identify your values, design future paths, prototype possibilities, map out the stuff that brings you energy and draft a personal vision. Clients complete assignments before each session. Through this process, you will figure out what matters most to you and how you can best move forward.

Our core philosophy rests on three simple principles:

Be Curious: Life design involves identifying the things that matter most to you, while always being open to all of the amazing possibilities the world offers.

Stay Connected: Life design involves staying connected to yourself through constant reflection while also building and sustaining meaningful relationships.

Try Stuff: Life design involves tryings lots of stuff, having courageous conversations and learning from your experiences through a process of constant reflection.

    As leaders in this field, we need to recognize the pain all around us and create spaces for professionals to openly share their struggles. Lawyers, caseworkers and judges need to create a community in which we can be vulnerable and can express the ways in which the work is impacting us every day.

    about us

    In a field obsessed with prestige, Bridgette and Vivek teach you to ask instead: How will this fuel me? Following their life model professionally has encouraged me to open doors I didn’t know existed. More importantly, though, it’s oriented me towards hope and cheer in an often grueling profession

    I can’t imagine how stale my legal life would be without Bridgette and Vivek. Every lesson is filled with warmth, resilience, gratitude, humor, reflection, community, and growth. Bridgette and Vivek are unconditional allies for everyone they work with and they leave a lasting impact.

    It was an excellent opportunity to examine my values and strengths and think critically about how I can plan a career that aligns with them.

    With Bridgette and Vivek’s support, I was able to pivot away from what I was told I should want in a legal career to what alights my fire, gives me joy, and aligns with my values. The visualization exercise in particular helped me see that a fulfilling career was just one aspect to a happy, meaningful life
