Gary Gets Lawyers

Gary understands the lawyer's mind and the way most lawyers think. He gets that common personality traits; analytical, critical thinking, and skepticism, while serving them well in the practice of law, often impede them in excelling with the business side of law.

He gets law firms

Gary understands how the typical business model of a law firm is full of complexities. The competing personalities, generational differences, egos, and hierarchy lend themselves to slower progress.

New Thinking New Results

Gary has an unmatched ability to teach lawyers a different way of thinking about their business, thus helping them to grow and flourish in less time. His 'street smarts' as an entrepreneur are magnetic.

Gary’s Approach

Gary’s approach is unique. He views his time working with lawyers as cutting his teeth as a business coach, a virtual ‘Bootcamp’.  After all, lawyers are widely known to be among the most analytical, critical, and skeptical people on the planet. These traits he believes are essential for their success, and a primary reason their clients seek them out. However, when it comes to the business of law, these very same traits can often hold lawyers back, and limit their growth and success potential.    

Enter Gary. He thrives in the realm of people—the most complex aspect of any business. His lifelong dedication to understanding human dynamics has made him an invaluable coach to lawyers and business leaders. Gary helps his clients master the softer skills often associated with successful business leaders and entrepreneurs. 

From Coaching to Authoring

Gary’s insights extend beyond personal coaching. As an author of three books and hundreds of articles, he has contributed significantly to business strategies within the legal industry.

His role as the creator and host of The LawBiz Podcast further underscores his commitment to sharing knowledge and fostering a community of growth-oriented professionals.
