So, you've decided to go to law school. What is the key to success in a challenging economy? Making yourself stand out. You're already making a huge investment into your future... let's make sure you see the returns.

How I stand out:

I graduated first in my law school class. I have over 6 years of experience practicing law. I spent over 4 years in "biglaw", during which time I interviewed potential summer and lateral associates. I have a proven track record of helping current law students and recent graduates secure both summer and permanent employment.

How I can help you stand out:

If you are thinking about law school, I can help identify the best fit for you. I can help with your personal statement. I can help you strategize.

If you are entering your 1L year in the fall, we can work together to create a personalized study plan based on methods that work best for you as an individual. Studying in law school isn't the same as studying in college.

If you're a current law student, we can work together to evaluate your current study methods and exam strategy. I can tutor you in my areas of expertise (contracts, corporate, mergers and acquisitions, etc). I can help you put yourself in the best position to get onto law review. We can create a resume that will catch the attention of potential employers. We can do interview prep. I can give you career guidance. I can help you network.

Considering transferring to a different law school? I can help with that, too.

If you've already graduated, I can assist with bar preparation in addition to your bar review class. I can go through practice exams with you to identify strengths and weaknesses. I can impart my bar exam wisdom. If you haven't secured a permanent position, I can help you with that too. We can create a resume that will catch the attention of potential employers. We can do interview prep. I can give you career guidance. I can help you network.

Busy schedule?

I am available to meet either in-person or via Skype on weekdays and weekends, mornings, afternoons and evenings (7am until 11pm).
