The Focused Lawyer Coaching Group

An Online Group for Lawyers with ADHD

Seeking the power of a community?
Okay, let's start there. 

Have you ever wondered what practicing law would be like if your ADHD didn't get in the way...

 

If you were more organized, more motivated, and less distracted? Without the right kind of support, lawyers with ADHD can be stuck in a state of distraction, high stress, and being underproductive and overwhelmed.

 

But what if it didn't have to be so hard? What if you could find a community to help you learn how to manage your time effectively and create systems that work for you and stick with them? What if this group was designed specifically for your unique circumstances?

 

Welcome to The Focused Lawyer Coaching Group, an online community created specifically for lawyers with ADHD.

 

The Focused Lawyer Coaching Group offers support, guidance, accountability, and connection to help you develop the systems and processes you need to get your work and life under control. Each 3-month session is held three times per year in the Spring (February-April), Summer (June-August), and Fall (October-December). 

 

Expand your understanding of how having ADHD impacts your practice of law, develop skills and habits to optimize brain function, maximize talents, motivate yourself to succeed, and identify the specific action steps that work best for you.

 

Share with and learn from other lawyers with ADHD, discuss your experiences with the group, and reap the benefits of having multiple minds in our virtual room.

The Focused Lawyer Coaching Group

Group Coaching Workshops | Virtual Co-Working Sessions | Private Online Community

The Focused Lawyer is a group coaching program designed in three parts:

Coaching Workshop

Group coaching workshops provide an opportunity to debrief, learn new skills, implement what you've learned, participate or observe laser coaching sessions, share your weekly takeaways, and build accountability.

Virtual Co-Working Meetings

You will participate in live group co-working meetings that take place daily Monday through Friday throughout the 3-month session.

Online Virtual Community

Stay on track with our private online group designed specifically for members of The Focused Lawyer to facilitate ongoing communication, connection, accountability, and support during the 3-month session. You will have daily check-ins to keep you on track and opportunities to interact with one of our Team Coaches in the community throughout the program.​

 

 

When you join The Focused Lawyer Coaching Group, you get access to all three parts – Coaching Workshops, Virtual Co-Working Meetings, and the Online Virtual Community – for the 3-month session.

Because The Focused Lawyer Coaching Group is designed to maximize learning, development, and productivity, you must be able to commit to:

  • Joining live video meetings by Zoom for all Coaching Workshops and Co-Working Meetings (Coaching Workshops and Co-Working Meetings will not be recorded.)

  • Facilitating virtual co-working meetings

  • Engaging with other members and a Team Coach in the private online community

  • Sharing your daily check-ins every morning and evening

  • Being willing to get sh!t done!

Registration for the Fall 2022 session of The Focused Lawyer will open shortly. Please email us to join our waiting list to be notified when registration opens.

The Fall 2022 session of The Focused Lawyer will meet from the first week of October through the third week of December. 

 

 

This group is built on the 4-step performance model for ADHD, so we have 2 separate cohorts for this group: the New Member cohort that will learn the 4-step performance model for ADHD and the Alumni cohort for people who have already completed the New Member cohort.

The Alumni Cohort is only for people who have learned the 4-Step Performance Model for ADHD (NODE model). This cohort is only for people who participated in one of the 2021 or Spring/Summer 2022 sessions.

Alumni Cohort Schedule

The New Member Cohort is for people who have not been introduced to the 4-Step Performance Model for ADHD (NODE model). This cohort is for people who did not participate in any of the 2021 or Spring/Summer 2022 sessions.

What People Say

Prior to starting The Focused Lawyer, it felt like I was alone in my struggles. I loved getting to meet amazing attorneys doing good work ... while also having ADHD. Appreciating them and their strengths helped me start to see my own strengths. Everyone was super positive and supportive. I am really such a fan of my cohort.

I'm SO glad that I reached out to Casey about participating in group coaching because it has made a tremendous difference for me!

I've tried other programs aimed at helping those in my profession be productive, manage their time, and have a work-life balance. However, Casey's group coaching program is the first where I could be honest about my challenges without feeling judged or that I'm different from others.

Making a daily plan is definitely helping me stay focused.

Managed small crisis at end of the day...caused by Adhd moment ... This would have been a big issue for old me and it is a win that I was able to manage and resolve the situation fairly quickly and with no emotional damage.
