Education, Tools and Mentoring
Everything Law School Didn’t Teach

Convert divorce lawyer stress
into an exceptional career

What kind of life did you want to create for yourself when you invested so many years and big money to become a lawyer?  

Were you assuming everything will be rosy and once you became a lawyer it would be smooth sailing? Well, let me assure you that starting your own legal career is no guarantee to success as I found out at great cost.


The one thing we all have in common is that law school didn't prepare us for any of it.

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


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

How you can escape from lawyer stress

Hello, I'm Val Hemminger. 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 and sometimes it has felt like 100 years!! 😳

I spent plenty of years trapped between a rock and a hard place, life completely out of balance. And yet, I have escaped the merry go round and now have a life of balance, prosperity and personal health with a six figure income.  No small achievement for a divorce lawyer. So many in our industry are suffering.


"Law school teaches us sweet 'f-all'
about how to run a business or law practice."

How I can help you avoid or recover from imploding

Law school teaches us sweet "f-all" about how to run a business or law practice. 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. Whoa, it has been a freaking hard ride at times.

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

So, if you are going through a period of great financial stress, personal challenges and client overwhelm, 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:

  • your divorce lawyer/client relationships
  • the other partyies you deal with in a conflict
  • your law firm employers
  • your billings

Just getting new clients, working longer hours and seeing your family and friends less and less are not solutions that will support you to build a balanced family life and healthy career and business.
