Coaching Lawyers

Have the career you want to live, not the one you need to survive.

Montreal and Internationally

Are you barely keeping up? Tired of the incessant volume of work? Questioning why you went into law in the first place? Practicing law can be invigorating and exciting. But it can also be stressful and all-consuming. At Lynda Hoffman Life Coaching, I am devoted to coaching lawyers who want to increase their resilience, enjoy renewed faith in their career choices, and design a future they want to celebrate.

A 2017 article in Canadian Lawyer magazine published findings from the University of Toronto confirming that paradoxically:

According to this research, the rates of anxiety and addiction are also higher for lawyers than for other professionals.


The culture, especially in large firms, is to practice law at the expense of your life and yourself. It doesn’t have to be this way. You do not necessarily have to leave your career. You can fall in love with the practice of law all over again.

For a Thriving Practice and Fulfilling Life

Coaching supports you in building the outer skills for:

  • Time management
  • Organization
  • Prioritizing
  • Strategizing for increased income
  • Business development
  • Interpersonal effectiveness

More importantly, coaching helps you build the inner skills for:

  • Balancing your personal life with your work life
  • Being proactive rather than reactive
  • Identifying limiting beliefs and patterns that are not serving you or your practice
  • Matching your actions with your intentions
  • Overcoming procrastination
  • Seeing events as possibilities for learning
  • Rolling with failures to strengthen resilience
  • Reducing the burden of being overwhelmed


Coaching will increase your:

  • Agency
  • Income
  • Self-confidence
  • Fulfillment

One-on-one coaching sessions are tailor-made to your needs. You will have a thought partner who is well-versed with the culture and workings of law firms, committed to your growth, and willing to challenge you when you are in your own way.
