Grow Your Family Law Practice

What kind of life did you want to create for yourself?

When you invested so many years and big money to become a lawyer and to grow your family law practice, were you assuming everything would be rosy and smooth sailing once you graduated and started work in a legal practice? I know I did all those years ago! 

Well, let me assure you... Just because you become a lawyer, that is no guarantee you will be able to grow your family law practice, as I discovered at a great cost.

The one thing you and I have in common is that law school didn't prepare us for any of the real world of practicing law.

And that is why lawyer stress is such a big issue in our industry. 

If you are experiencing lawyer stress,
you are not alone and I want to help.

How you can escape from lawyer stress and grow your family law practice

Hello, I'm Val Hemminger. Based in Westshore, British Columbia, I've been a family divorce lawyer for over 25 years. I have run my own law practice for over 20 years.

Believe me, the 25+ years haven't all been smooth sailing. Sometimes it felt as if I was running on a never-ending hamster wheel with no end in sight.

There were plenty of years where I was trapped between a rock and a hard place where my life was totally and completely out of balance. There was no sign that I would EVER be able to fulfill my dream to build and grow a successful family law practice.

Despite the years of overwhelm, financial challenges, and lawyer stress I experienced, I did finally manage to get off that hamster wheel and create a completely different kind of life.

Now, I have a life of balance, prosperity and personal health with a six figure income. You may know that this is no small achievement, particularly for a divorce lawyer. So many in our industry are suffering.

Law school teaches us sweet nothing about how to run a business or law practice

How I can help you avoid lawyer stress or recover from imploding

When I opened my own law practice more than two decades ago, I had no idea how to run a business effectively. I also had no idea what I was getting into. 

You can read about my journey and some of how I made it through, here.

So, if you are going through a period of great financial stress, personal challenges and client overwhelm, all while trying to grow YOUR family law business, then you will know what I mean.

Even if you are just starting out, then I can assure you that you will likely experience stress dealing with at least a couple of the following:

  • your client relationships
  • the other parties you deal with in a conflict
  • your law firm employers
  • your billings
  • your relationships with other divorce lawyers.

Growing your family law business and lawyer stress don't have to go together...

  • Getting new clients all the time and working longer hours while seeing your family and friends less and less is not the way it has to be.
  • You want solutions and strategies that will support you to build a balanced family life, healthy career, and business.
