For Private Practice Attorneys Ready To Elevate Your Leadership, Revenues & Impact



When I first came to Heather, I was overwhelmed by my workload and the pressure to build more business. One of the things that drew me to her was that she practiced law and understands the issues that private practice lawyers face.

Heather is incredibly insightful. I was surprised by her ability to introduce new ways of looking at things. She helped me identify the source of my stress, my emotional triggers and how to break free from my emotions. And she challenged me to rethink and then refocus on what’s most important (this was invaluable).

I’ve been able to let go of the (mostly self-imposed) pressure that I felt to build my business while increasing it by about $100,000. I recommend Heather 100% to anyone who needs to be reenergized professionally. Be prepared to uncover things about yourself that you never before realized!

If you could achieve more of what you want

(even build a bigger book of business)

by simplifying and working less

(while taking impeccable care of yourself)…

…Would you give yourself that chance?

Or would you keep on. . .
🚫 Working late most every night after the kids go to bed, just barely squeezing life in (and still not have the time to build the practice you want).

🚫 Setting big goals for your practice… only to feel overwhelmed by the lack of a real strategy (so you give up just a few months into the new year).

🚫 Listening to the competing voices battling inside of your head that question whether there should be more to life and simultaneously worry that it’s unrealistic to want balance and success (at the same time).

🚫 Feeling frustrated that you haven’t yet tapped into your best gifts (but need to in order to make a meaningful impact).

🚫 Thinking that you should know exactly what to do… yet recognizing (deep-down) that there’s a missing piece you haven’t been able to figure out on your own.

The good news:

You CAN let go of all of this and instead create the success + impact you want.

Without overextending yourself into oblivion.

And (yes!) while having a more balanced lifestyle.


Through Next Level Coaching

… you’ll unlock your inner confidence, uncover what you really want out of your practice and take consistent action on a simple, strategic plan.

Why Work With This Recovering Lawyer Turned Lawyer Coach

Who Built A $2.5MM+ Practice From Scratch While Navigating Her Way Through Bed Rest & Cancer

Hey there, I’m Heather Moulder.

Attorney. Cancer Survivor. Host of the Life & Law Podcast.


You’re a great lawyer who gets your clients the results they want, need and even more. The problem? That’s not all there is to being a lawyer.

You’ve discovered the secret (law school never teaches you): that practicing law isn’t just about giving legal advice. You’re wearing a million different hats: marketer, leader, manager, business strategist, salesman, and so on.

And it’s time to embrace your role as business owner and entrepreneur. Like I (finally) did…

…January 2009. In a cold sweat while staring at my dismal collection numbers for the prior year, I worried I couldn’t even meet THOSE in the new one.

The small book of business I’d had when being promoted to partner the year before had been *poof* wiped out by the 2008 financial crisis. I desperately needed to pivot my practice, build new relationships and rebuild from scratch.

Heather Laughing While Working
As a semi-introvert who doesn’t love to put herself out there, I was terrified. But it was either give up (and fail) or embrace it (and try something different). I chose the latter.

I simplified my business plan, leaned into my strengths and prioritized consistency. And kept things super simple (and very strategic).

And (hallelujah), it worked!

Within 2 years, my origination revenues hit $1MM.

[Which I grew to over $2.5MM – even while navigating maternity leave (and bed rest!) for my 2nd child and an 8-month battle with an aggressive breast cancer.]


When I first started working with Heather, I was hoping to find better focus and accountability. I also wanted some ‘outsider’ perspective from someone who understands what it’s like to build their private law practice.

Heather challenged me to see situations (and my own actions) for what they are so that I could improve my results and achieve my goals. Her nonjudgmental nature allowed me to openly share my thoughts and struggles, and receive better feedback.

Heather will help you get to the next level without losing yourself in the process. Working with her (individually and then within her Mastermind) resulted in a 20x return on my investment.

4 Reasons To Create

Your Next Level Of Success + Impact

1. Feel Calm & In Control.

Building a thriving practice without burning out requires a strong, resilient mentality. Because you can’t create the success or impact you want when worried about what others might think, fearing failure or trying to be everything to everyone. The good news is that you can rewire your mind to be the resilient, calm and confident leader you aim to be.

3. Confidently Sell.

Despite what the partner down the hall might say,  hounding clients for work doesn’t work so well. And honestly, selling isn’t one-size-fits-all. Uncover your unique sales personality so that you can ask for business in a way that aligns to your personality, leverages your strengths and feels 100% good to you (never pushy).

2. Simplify To Do Less.

No more wasting time doing “all the things” your peers seem to be doing (or giving your life to your firm). Instead, learn how to leverage your strengths while taking consistent action on just a few client development strategies that you actually enjoy. That’s how to increase revenues without increasing stress levels (and do less, not more).

4. Fulfill Your Potential.

Successful leaders are open to fresh perspectives and honest reflection. And that’s precisely why coaching is so beneficial. You’ll uncover what’s best for you while receiving the strategic support and accountability you need (from an expert who’s been in your shoes and prevailed) to get you to the next level.


When I came to Heather, I was struggling with how to build my practice around what I do well (and enjoy) while justifying law firm rates. I’m a labor and employment lawyer with a skill set that puts me directly in competition with HR consultants.

As a result of working with Heather, I changed firms to one that’s a much better fit. I now feel in control of my practice, and am doing more of what I love to do (which doesn’t feel like work).

If you’re tired of feeling like you’re all over the place, work with Heather. Her targeted coaching will help you uncover the answers you’re looking for.

Business Development Assessment

My clients rave about the deep insights this assessment unlocks because it transforms the business development hustle-and-grind into something that’s enjoyable (and easy to stay consistent with). And it gives me background information to customize coaching specifically to your personality, needs and strengths.

Personalized Resources To Further Your Development

Tailored assessments (on an as-needed basis) designed to help you create more fulfilling goals, meet your needs and reclaim your confidence. So that you can create a practice that fuels you while transforming your insights into effective self-leadership.

High-Performance Coaching and Consulting

Get expert coaching and mentorship from someone who’s been in your shoes (and prevailed). Together, we’ll work to reclaim your inner confidence, unlock what you want (you’ll never be dictated to) and uncover your next steps to get you there. This is a partnership to help you quickly create the practice (and life) that you want.

(Almost) Instant Support

Sometimes you just need to get a quick question answered, want to celebrate or desire a bit of encouragement (before going into a sales pitch) without having to get on the phone. Which is why you’ll have access to me during business hours for just-in-time email coaching. Ask any question, and I’ll get back to you same-day.

Bonus: Immediate Access To Mindset Mastery Trainings

Tap into my library of online workshops for mastering your inner critic and releasing fear, worry and self-doubt so that you can break through your inner glass ceiling and step into the confident leader that you’re meant to be.


Working with Heather has made me realize that I’d been sidelining myself assuming that I didn’t have time for proper business development. And that small habits can create big changes.

Business development is no longer an ambiguous concept or theory, but consists of real-world strategies that I can implement immediately in my business. The intimidation factor that had been holding me back has been eliminated. As a result, I’m more consistent and actually enjoy business development.

I recommend Heather for anyone that doesn’t have a good balance of “in the business” vs. “on the business”, and who wants to reset their focus to include maximizing long-term business development and peer relationships (as opposed to just maximizing short-term work).

We’re a (dark chocolate & merlot) fit if you’re…

Tired of being so busy (doing things you don’t want to do)

You realize that you can’t time manage your way to balance (it’s deeper than that), and are looking for support to help you (1) figure out what you want and (2) create strong boundaries that will enable you to make what you want a reality. It’s time to create success on your terms.

Committed to making a bigger impact in the world

And you know that you can (if only you could feel confident enough to speak up and put yourself out there). It’s time to invest in yourself so that you can tap into your full potential & make what you want a reality (or otherwise, let go of your bigger dreams).

Ready to break through the inner glass ceiling (holding you back)

You’re no longer willing to let fear (of what others think & failure) stop you. You’re at a tipping point – face (and overcome) those fears or do nothing. And it’s come to the point where you fear NOT doing anything more than you fear change.

Want an expert who's been where you are and prevailed

Someone who understands the unique pressure (and high-stakes nature) of the legal profession. And who won’t just tell you what to do but will help you uncover what’s best for you (while also sharing what has worked for them and others).

Get The Personalized Support + Expert Strategy You Deserve…

[Spots are limited & we must chat to determine if Next Level Coaching is a good fit.]

Got Questions? Here are the answers to the most common questions attorneys have before saying “Yes!” to Next Level Coaching:

How Big Is The Time Commitment (I'm Already So Busy)?
I’m known for my blunt honesty, and so here’s the truth…

Your practice won’t grow by itself (nor will you be able to build it the way you want without some level of time + commitment). And the more time you put in the more you’ll get out of your investment.

But please note: you’ll be building the foundational skills and habits you need that will save you time and energy in the future. And the good news is that – once you create a strengths-based strategic plan – it won’t take up nearly as much time as you think (plus, it will be much more enjoyable to implement).

That being said, we’ll meet 12 times for around 45 minutes over the course of 6-8 months. And I recommend investing an additional 1-2 hours per week into client development.

What's The Process For How This Works?
After talking, if we both determine to move forward, you’ll receive an invoice and your coaching contract. Once you’ve paid in full and signed your contract, we’ll get started with an intake assessment and initial call together. This is where we craft your unique professional development goals and business development strategy.

Thereafter, we’ll meet about twice per month via Zoom. You’ll schedule those at your convenience using my scheduler.

The format of each session is customized to meet your goals and needs.

What Results Can I Expect?
While I can’t guarantee specific results, I’m 100% committed to you and will always bring my best to our coaching.

That being said, most clients begin to experience results quickly (after all, we’ll initially clarify what you want + how to make it happen in a way you’ve never had before). And it’s not uncommon to experience big changes after only a couple of sessions.

The truth is that there’s no magic bullet. Your results are dependent on your willingness to be 100% open and honest, and the work you put in.

Why a 12-session commitment?
Business development doesn’t happen overnight. And you don’t just create new habits within a few weeks (or 1-2 months).

You need time to dig in, learn and pivot. That’s what this time frame allows for.

What Happens After Our Initial 12-Session Commitment?

We’ll discuss where you are and your next steps. You’ll have the option to continue working together – either individually (through another 12-session engagement or on a monthly basis) or within my ELEVATE Mastermind.

We can also discuss customizing something to meet your needs at that time. Whatever you decide, it’s your choice.

Is This Right For Me If I'm Not Sure About Staying In Private Practice?

No.  Next Level Coaching is for private practice attorneys who want to get to the next level with their practice.

If you’re at the point where you’re not sure that you want to stay in private practice (or the even the legal profession) or are too burned out to know what you want, Inside-Out Coaching would be perfect for you. Go here to check out Inside-Out Coaching.

What's Your Refund Policy?
Although I do require a long-term commitment, should you determine that coaching isn’t a fit you can cancel and receive a refund of unused amounts in accordance with the terms set forth here.

No one has ever requested a refund and I don’t expect you to. This is why we must chat first – so that (1) I can determine whether (and how) I can help you, (2) you can get your questions answered and (3) we can both determine whether we’d be a good fit together.

What About Confidentiality (Especially If My Employer Pays)?
I take my clients’ privacy and confidentiality seriously, and am subject to the ICF Code of Ethics (which can be found here).

Before we begin working together, we’ll sign a coaching agreement that contains specific provisions around confidentiality (that will apply to our arrangement regardless of who pays).


Insightful and astute, Heather’s in the right business. She has helped me become more self-aware, to re-frame my thoughts and adjust plans so that I can take the right actions to effectively reach my goals.

I’d recommend Heather to anyone wanting strategic legal career advice and accountability.

The Thing Is…

You chose to be a lawyer for a reason. To be your best and make a meaningful impact.

Getting to the next level – on your terms – is your path to making that impact. Because that’s about speaking up to be heard, going your own way and transforming into an effective leader.

And you need a rock-solid support network and a simple strategic plan that’s easy (even enjoyable) to take consistent action on.

Having a support structure and taking action on a simplified plan might not sound all that exciting, but it’s the BEST way to get to the next level without burning out.

Which leaves you with 3 main choices…

(1) Continue going it alone, investing a ton of time and energy (hoping that you’ll figure out the missing piece before burning out).
(2) Cobble together your own support network while risking that you’ve missed something and will end up stuck in common business development pitfalls (that waste time + money).
(3) Get the support of an expert to help you put together a simple strategic plan and avoid common traps so that you can get to your next level of success more quickly (without losing yourself in the process).
If you’re ready to elevate your leadership, impact and income on your terms, and #3 is calling out to you. . .

…then I’d be thrilled to help you get to that next level (and beyond) with confidence, grace and ease.

I can’t wait to celebrate your skyrocketing success + impact with you.
