Florida Lawyers AssistanceIs your “Career Compass” headed north in 2018?

Many lawyers have benefited from Florida Lawyer Assistance, Inc. sponsoring career counseling programs each month since its inception in 2013, under the direction of the late Michael Cohen and David Behrend, Director of Career Planning Services for Lawyers in Ardmore, Pennsylvania.

The free career counseling program comes to lawyers via computer, mobile device or telephone from the privacy of their home or office. Molly Paris is the new organizer of the webinar, under Florida Lawyer Assistance’s new Executive Director, Judy Rushlow.

“Is your compass on track to navigate where you want to go or be in your professional career, be it a recent law graduate, lawyer in transition, or firm partner?” Behrend asks. “If you need a ‘personal trainer’ to assist you in reaching or adjusting your career goal, the meetings will continue to be held — now in its 5th year — the second Wednesday of each month at 11:00 AM  Eastern Time.”

Behrend noted that whose who have benefited from participating include:

  • Lawyers who are or should be exploring a career or employment change;

  • Lawyers returning to the practice of law after absence of time;
