Jeanne Frazer and Jeff Nischwitz - Innovation Lab for Lawyers

“There are some sobering statistics out there, with high occupation rates of depression, burnout, alcohol and drug addiction, and divorce rates,” says Jeff Nischwitz. “In fact, 50% of lawyers wish they were doing something else. Join us to learn how to rewrite your story and your practice from both a legal and branding/marketing standpoint in order to find peace in the practice of law.”

“So many of the attorneys we work with would prefer to practice law and not worry so much about marketing,” says Frazer. “It can leave them wondering what happened to their dream of practicing law. Innovation Lab is designed to empower you to take back control of your practice and your life with simple tools to help you create a sustainable brand platform that resonates.”
