Empowering Lawyers - Inspiring Teams - Creating Winning Legacies
1:1 Intensive Coaching with Lexlee Overton
Your Pathway to Power Starts Now!
Lawyers want to win. The practice of law is all about winning for your client.
And, to win, you prepare.
You might define preparation as spending money on client acquisition marketing, practice management software, phone systems, and even negotiation or trial technique workshops. All of this may bring in some great solutions for your clients and make you think you are winning.
But, at the end of the day, if you want to be better at winning, you have to start with you.
Everything about success as a lawyer begins with investment in your most valuable asset... You.
Here’s a secret... Knowing how to harness and master your energy, having a defined sense of well-being, and cultivating purpose and vision are the main ingredients to improve your performance and build success.
Everything in your life and in your law practice is a result of what you believe is possible about yourself and the world around you.
Lawyers are achievers. You can be focused. You can reach for the goal. But at some point in this adversarial career, we all experience some or all of these challenging thought processes appear:
Sound familiar? I understand. Humbling and vulnerable moments like these can be scary.
As a 5th generation former trial lawyer, I know exactly what you’re going through.
And, I’m passionate about helping other lawyers overcome the cycle of stress and burnout that leads to sacrificing your own well-being for the sake of your work performance.
Because, here’s another secret... Investing in your well-being is actually the number one contributor to improving your performance and building success.
If you’re anything like I was years ago, you might be thinking that it sounds far-fetched and too good to be true.
Back then, I had a successful trial practice with lots of winning verdicts, but was constantly losing in my personal life. I was barely surviving, to the point that I found myself in the emergency room with chest pains that I feared were a heart attack.
As I’m sure you can imagine, it was the reality check I needed and I began to take simple, practical steps toward a better life.
My stress levels began decreasing.
I began to feel like I was the calm during any storm.
And with those changes to my worldview came changes to my law practice. It was more fulfilling. I was more present.
I made a bigger impact - with both my clients and my staff.
As a result, I became the calm, joyful, power-performer I am now, and saw my personal and financial happiness also grow.
Now, I mentor other lawyers to help them achieve that same fulfillment and success.
I'm here to help you remember that you are not here to play small. You are here to lead, to be seen, to create change. You just need a little help remembering how to tap into your greatness.
Optimal performance starts with the Pathway to Power coaching program.
We offer two tracks; one geared towards the individual lawyer and one towards the entire team. Choose one or both.
Become more empowered as a lawyer and leader as you progress through the five following levels:
You will leave with tools to stop simply reacting to life and begin designing it with vision instead.
Your Pathway to Power Starts Now
Part I: Assessment
We begin by assessing your current state. What’s working for you? What’s not working? In what areas do you wish to grow? What’s holding you back?
This is where the magic happens and I’ll tell you why...I have an ability that most don’t have. I can see what others can’t, the energy of what limits you. After a short time with me, I can discern the places you truly want to go to, what you fear the most, what is holding you back. My clients call it “life-changing,” I call it my superpower.
Part II: Empowerment
Once you have awareness of what limits you, we can shift to the next level. This is where you let go of fears and tap into your strengths. With a few empowering practices, you can understand who you are at a deeper level, which creates momentum for you to continue your journey.
Part III: Vision
This is where you tap into your own superpower to create what you truly desire. You will learn to develop a clear understanding of your vision. I call it creating “destinies” and my clients call it “transformative.” The bottom line is that you will choose what you create.
Part IV: Strategy
Once you shift your limitations and know your vision, the strategy unfolds. In this step, we work to map out your next steps for growth.
Part V: Lead
You emerge as a leader who creates change for your clients, your team and your community, forging a lasting and impactful legacy.
"When I was introduced to Lexlee, my life was chaotic; I was managing, but I wasn't living. I had not made time to enjoy the life I had built, honor myself with the gifts that come with personal success, or really even get to know myself at all. I was a very successful lawyer, a great friend and my own worst enemy.
In the short time I have worked with Lexlee, the changes have been phenomenal. I’ve made changes inside, where it counts the most.
For the first time in my life I feel loved, I feel at home, and I feel deserving of good things. Although most people cannot physically see the changes, those closest to me can feel them: the extra boisterous laugh, the twinkle of excitement in my eyes, the peacefulness I exhibit under extreme stress."

"There’s a lot of anxiety that comes with being a lawyer... and especially being a solo practitioner. I asked Lexlee to help me by being an objective eye to review the year past for my firm. She looked at the past financials, case load, marketing, and my own time allocations. It was really helpful to have someone else review things and give me insights into situations I wasn’t seeing for myself. She gave me suggestions for how to spend my marketing time, case load and being selective about it, and how to balance my life so I could better manage everything.
That also came in handy when my anxiety would climb later in the year. Then, I could reach out to Lexlee who, due to the earlier work she had done, already knew my issues. With a one hour session, she could help me get back to a productive mode rather than letting the anxiety cycle get worse. Quite frankly, I don’t know how solos do it without someone like Lexlee to help keep our sanity!"

Q: Do we work in person or virtually?
A. Both options are available. Usually, 1:1 coaching is done on a weekly basis, via Zoom or Skype. But, often, one on one coaching clients will choose to have a VIP day with me in Louisiana (yep, be ready for some awesome food in bayou country). This allows you to leave the office behind and truly tune into what you want to accomplish, whether that be to create a vision for your year or prepare for trial.
Q. Can I choose the areas of focus where I need most help?
A: Yes! We will create a vision for the areas in which you want to grow. The topics can range from revenue to personal growth goals. Intensive customized coaching is about where you want to be - you choose the focus.
Q: Can a VIP deep dive session be about our firm’s overall goals?
A: Yes. We can work on personal, firm goals or both. These VIP sessions are customized to your most important needs.
Q: Can I choose to have you help prepare me emotionally and mentally for trial?
A: Yes! My recommendation is to set aside some time to focus completely on preparing yourself mentally, emotionally and physically for trial. We all have fear, anxiety and limiting beliefs that can get in the way. We will customize your preparation time to best suit you. Then, you can choose if you want help with any phase of trial from voir dire to closing.
