Susan Cartier Liebel
I also coach and consultant for solos and small firms. An entrepreneur at heart, I started my own practice right out of law school and was an adjunct professor at Quinnipiac University School of Law for eight years teaching law students how to open their own legal practices right out of law school.
In addition, I have been a columnist for LawyersUSA Weekly, the Connecticut Law Tribune, The Complete Lawyer, and Law.com, and have contributed to numerous legal publications and books on the topic, as well as, on the issues facing women in the workforce. I speak frequently to law schools and professional organizations around the country on issues facing solos, offering both practical knowledge and inspiration.
It is my personal mission, through education and authorship, to change the way law schools educate their students and the way the legal community receives solos. A law degree gives you freedom to create and design your life while enjoying your career on your own terms. I’m living proof it’s not only possible but very doable.
I juggle the roles of wife, mother and entrepreneur. I am living my dream … self-employment with an international business orchestrated from my Connecticut home-office.
And now that we’re through all the ‘proper stuff’ – give me all-I-can-eat sushi, Spartacus and SYTYCD on my iphone, and a ticket for me and my family to see every corner of the world and my life will be beyond bliss!
I hope you will enjoy my posts.
