Helping lawyers have a successful career and a meaningful life

The Coach for Lawyers, LLC offers business coaching, law practice consulting, professional training and life coaching for lawyers.  Services are provided throughout the United States by the firm’s founder, John Allison, who is an experienced lawyer with a broad and successful legal career as well as a trained professional coach.

John is committed to helping lawyers experience the rewards and satisfaction that the practice of law can offer and find meaning and fulfillment in their professional lives.  He understands the art of practicing law and has a deep appreciation of what clients want.  John also has personal experience working through many of the challenges lawyers encounter.

John brings his calm presence, deep listening skills and intuition to his work as a personal coach.  He works with his clients on the particular issues that are of concern to them, and recognizes that each client’s situation is unique. As a personal coach John helps you see through the complexities of your situation and discover the underlying issues that are at the core.  He then works with you to develop a specific action plan for addressing those core issues.  By working with John as your coach, you will not be facing your issues and challenges alone.   

As a law practice consultant John helps solo practitioners and small law firms build and maintain a profitable law practice consistent with the firm’s unique culture and values.  He works with lawyers setting up their practice as a solo practitioner and lawyers who want to transition to a new or different practice area. He also works with small law firms wrestling with difficult internal issues that may undermine the firm’s ability to sustain a profitable law practice.

Repeat business and referrals from satisfied clients are the keys to building and sustaining a successful law practice, particularly in today’s highly competitive environment.  John provides expertise and professional training on several core law practice skills that are not taught in law school.  His interactive seminars, workshops, coaching and mentoring services are designed to help lawyers and law firms master the art of practicing law and build their reputation for understanding and responding to the real needs of clients.  Lawyers serving the real needs of their clients are more likely to obtain repeat business and referrals, and are also more likely to find meaning and satisfaction in their professional lives. 

From his extensive legal career, John understands how important it is for a lawyer to listen deeply to clients and to appreciate the broader context in which a client is experiencing a legal problem.  During the course of his career he received outstanding reviews from clients and colleagues for his deep listening and inter-personal communication skills, effective negotiation skills, strategic insights and leadership.  With many years of experience building a successful private law practice, serving as the senior litigation manager for a Fortune 100 company, leading teams of lawyers and other professionals and helping people deal with difficult professional relationships, John has personal experience with both the rewards and the challenges of being a lawyer. 

John offers a free thirty-minute initial consultation to better understand a potential client’s situation, provide preliminary feedback and talk about whether working with John as a coach or a consultant will be helpful.  To schedule a free thirty-minute initial consultation, call John at 707.357.3732 or send an email to
