New ABA book shares creative approach to finding and designing a new career

CHICAGO, Sept. 15, 2022 — Just published by the American Bar Association, “Winning in Your Own Court: 10 Laws for a Successful Career without Burning Out or Selling Out” is a valuable resource that will guide you in finding and designing the career you have been seeking.  Author Dena Lefkowitz identifies 10 “laws” that will help you figure out what a career of your own design might look like and provides you with suggestions and exercises to put your insights, skills and practices to work for you right now and for the rest of your life.

If you face challenges in building a practice, making partner in your law firm or achieving a promotion, “Winning in Your Own Court” has strategies for becoming a rainmaker and influencer.

Perhaps you are looking for a new career path to use your law degree and are not sure how to start that exploration and transition. “Winning in Your Own Court” offers a model for career transformation. And, if you love the practice of law, it shows you how to excel.

Law school is a great beginning but only the first step in pursuing and building a fulfilling career. Lefkowitz has bridged this career gap for herself and has taught these essential lessons to hundreds of lawyers as a professional coach for more than 20 years.

She shares insights about lawyers who struggled with business development; who weren’t making partner and didn’t know why; and who were encountering career dilemmas, some unhappy in their current work and others who loved what they did but didn’t know how to get to the next level. Using the techniques presented in this book, Lefkowitz helped them build a book of business, make partner in their firm, achieve more in their practice or even transition to another career.

With this book, you will learn how to assess where you are, determine what needs to change to get where you want to be and create a plan to do so. Every situation has a solution, and you will learn how to find yours. And you can use this resource whenever your career needs a tune-up. Whatever your next move is, “Winning in Your Own Court” will help you get you there.
