James E. Persing, The Lawyer’s Edge Coach

After a decade of practicing law, Jim Persing shifted his focus to work more directly with clients, helping them create the life they desire. Over the past 20 years, he has had coaching relationships with individuals, corporations, and NGOs throughout the world. Jim earned his JD at Penn State University and a BA in Political Science from Susquehanna University.

Jim’s coaching passion has always been in the legal, healthcare, and financial services fields, working with individuals who are rising as leaders as well as those seeking a new edge or perspective. He has a broad and deep familiarity with leadership challenges, processes, and perspectives, and effectively draws on his own experiences to assist clients in visualizing a path forward, leveraging identified strengths, improving opportunities, establishing accountability, and implementing achievable solutions.

When he is not working, Jim and his wife enjoy exploring the National Parks and spending time with their kids in Washington and New York. Jim always has a historical biography on the nightstand, or can be found outside working in the yard.
