Let’s face it: The practice of law is, by nature, anxiety-provoking, fear-inducing and a constant drain on your energy. Lawyers are driven by deadlines, client demands and the “must fight to win” mentality that so often accompanies the “war” of trial.
“Success” is when you bill 300 hours a month, become a partner, receive the million-dollar jury verdict or win the “unwinnable” case. Then, you repeat, doing it all over again with the next deadline, the next argument, the next case, the next client.
Most of us are overachievers – superwomen or supermen to our clients and families. But we’ve been taught to do it the wrong way, living on the notion that being a “successful lawyer” means sacrificing personal happiness.
As a trial lawyer for over 20 years, I found myself burned out and exhausted. I didn’t recognize myself or even remember why I became a lawyer. I was longing for more – to feel inspired, to feel passionate.
That’s when I took a radical approach to gain control of my life and discover who I really am. I embarked on a path to learn and master ancient methods to empower my energy, deepen my awareness, and fine-tune my natural gifts to step fully into my purpose.
Now, I invite you to do the same.
Have you experienced any of the following?
- You don’t spend meaningful time with family or friends because you don’t have the time or energy.
- You have sleepless nights, often waking up and thinking about clients and cases.
- You have difficulty concentrating or a constant sense of worry and anxiety.
- You feel exhausted before you even get out of bed.
- You do what others expect instead of doing what fulfills you.
- You long for “something more.”
I coach lawyers to practice law in a different way by helping them to deepen their focus, claim a sense of purpose and rediscover their passion in their work and life.

What People Say About Their Experience
““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 did not blow up my life or make changes that anyone can even see. I 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. I am so thankful our paths crossed and I look forward to many more seasons of growth my new friend, mentor and sister. Thanks, Lexlee, for all you have done to help me be the best version of myself.””-Jacquelyn FordTrial Lawyer, Oklahoma
“I’ve seen a wonderful improvement in my life working with Lexlee Overton. Before I began working with Lexlee, I had completely lost direction because new phases of my life were coming at me faster than I could absorb them. I was new to caring for an elderly parent, the changes in course my career was taking, my growing family and choosing what I need to be doing with my life. At the same time, I was in a panic because I felt life slipping away so quickly and my bucket list was becoming just a bucket of dusty dreams. The urgency to explore my options, my feelings and my calling was there, but I had no idea how to focus and move my mind and heart toward the call I was feeling. As a result, I became paralyzed by panic. The Stevie Nicks song “Landslide” was haunting me because she asks the question, “Can I handle the seasons of my life?” The seasons of my life were changing and I was failing to handle even the simplest of tasks. With Lexlee’s help, I am finding a way to let love infuse my decisions and actions toward myself and toward others. And I’m learning that the more love increases, the more fear diminishes. I highly recommend this program, no matter what season of life you are navigating. This program can help you find your way to love and away from fear.”Vicki SlaterMississippi Trial Lawyer and President of AAJ Women's Caucus
““The practice of law can be draining, with long hours and endless deadlines. I found myself with underlying anxiety and constant “thinking” mind. After long days, I found myself exhausted. Working with Lexlee has helped me regain energy and focus. These methods are life-changing and have changed the way I feel in my practice and in life.””Christopher SubaTrial Attorney, Louisiana
“"To everything there is a season.....I met Lexlee through a seasonal friend & colleague that is no longer part of my life. That friend gave and taught me a lot about life and friendship, but the biggest gift she gave me was Lexlee. My life has always get chaotic and deep down I felt I wasn't worth not having chaos. Lexlee has and continues to help me learn to let go of the trauma of the past so I can accept the gifts of today and escape the pattern chaos and self doubt to move towards peace, love and self fulfillment. Her guidance has impacted my personal and professional relationships in positive and life changing ways that I cannot even begin to describe. Further the best part of working with her professionally was the development of a personal friendship that I know I can always rely on in a time of need for me and my family. I believe my relationship with Lexlee will outlast the seasons & last a lifetime."”Rachel BussettTrial Lawyer, Oklahoma
