Like the attorneys he works with, Roy is a lawyer, with more than 40 years of practice experience—in law firms, large and small, as well as in-house counsel.

Roy Is a Coaching Pioneer for Solo and Small Firm Attorneys

In the early 2000s, while still practicing law, Roy began to conduct CLE programs nationwide on law firm marketing, practice management, and succession planning and from that, began to coach lawyers in these areas. He has been coaching lawyers since long before the term “coach” became applicable in the legal field, making him one of the most experienced lawyer coaches in the U.S. today. He has worked with all-sized firms, rural and metropolitan, from Alaska to Florida, and in virtually every practice area for over 15 years.

Roy quickly realized that many of his clients had a problem: while they had spent their careers helping clients with life and business transitions, they were largely unprepared for their own transition out of practice.

For more than a decade, Roy has been helping lawyers sell their practices. He has assisted dozens of attorneys in capturing and maximizing the worth of their practices. He knows how to value a legal practice, how to find the right successor, and the most effective way to put together a deal.

Roy Can Help You Sell Your Practice

Roy’s experience in the legal field, both as a practitioner and a coach, means he truly understands the ins and outs of selling a law practice. Given his experience, he also understands:

  • Your needs as a practicing attorney
  • The issues you face as you consider selling
  • How to realistically value a legal practice
  • Which transition strategies actually work

End your career on a high note by obtaining money for your practice, while providing peace of mind for your family, your staff, and your clients. That’s what Roy helps lawyers achieve.
