On an individual basis, many of them have been recognized as Super Lawyers and Rising Stars.
“I was skeptical about coaching before I worked with Andrew. He demystified the process and helped me come up with a plan for growing my practice that actually worked. He really helped me stay on track and figure out what was most important. Within months I was getting more done, making progress on my goals, and enjoying accounting again.”
“We had been spinning our wheels for months before we called Andrew. In meeting after meeting we accomplished nothing – it usually felt like one step forward, two steps back. We [the firm’s shareholders] were getting more and more frustrated. Andrew talked with us individually and then facilitated a series of meetings. He started by helping us understand why our meetings had been so lousy, and then identified the two items we needed to resolve before we could begin making progress on our larger issues. I appreciated his calm yet forceful manner when the meetings got contentious, and his gentle persistence kept us from constantly going off onto tangents. We ended up reaching consensus on several key issues that had long been obstacles to our growth.”
“Andrew is a consultant who gets the business side of lawyering! He understands the pressures and demands lawyers face, and he gives advice that’s clear and practical. He knew I didn’t have the time to be a full-time managing partner, so he helped me figure out a way to lead my firm while not neglecting my clients. The firm is running better than ever and I now have a lot less stress.”
