About Eleanor Southers


Eleanor Southers I have been an attorney for the past 30 years. I had a large, successful Solo Practice doing personal injury, workers’ compensation and immigration law in Los Angeles, CA until moving to Santa Cruz, CA in 2007. I now devote my time to coaching members of the legal profession throughout the United States on a one to one basis by Skype, Phone or in Person.

I came to become a Coach because I had three coaches during the 20 years I practiced as a Solo and am eternally grateful for their contribution to my success and happiness with the law. I felt that I was now at a time in my life that I could give back to my colleagues. Coaching was a gift I could give to all attorneys at any time in their careers.

One of the biggest obstacles to my coaching practice has been the fact that attorneys who have not experienced it, have no idea what a dynamic tool it can be for life changing results. No amount of speech-making and article writing can demonstrate the feeling of control that having a dedicated Coach, whose only agenda is the client’s success, can bring to an unhappy, struggling or even just under experienced attorney. Those that have taken a leap into being coached know differently.

I would invite you to take advantage of what I offer to our community. I have open coaching hours available to get a “taste of coaching”. I do Seminars and write articles for all kinds of legal publications. At this time the American Bar Association has just published my book entitled BE A BETTER LAWYER: A SHORT GUIDE TO A LONG CAREER. This is a self-help book which can assist each and every lawyer to gain insight into their profession and make significant changes through concrete suggestions.
