The Lawyer’s Edge Podcast

We’re talking about all the stuff they don’t teach you in law school.

It’s not just about doing good work or putting in longer hours.

Elise Holtzman sits down with successful attorneys, legal marketing specialists, business leaders, and authors to talk about how lawyers can get what they really want from their careers and how law firms can grow and sustain healthy, profitable businesses.

We Talk To The Experts

Law school doesn’t cover everything the modern attorney needs to be successful.

That’s where The Lawyer’s Edge Podcast comes in. Listen in as experts and insiders in the legal industry reveal the truth about things like:

What it really takes to build a book of business

How to keep your best people from leaving

What keeps your clients coming back

How to be resilient—and successful—in times of crisis

How to keep your cool when working with difficult people

How to make sure you’re not one of the 50% of lateral hires that fail
