Attorney and Business Coach Nora Riva Bergman Debuts First Book in Series, “50 Lessons for Lawyers”


TAMPA BAY, FL – In the first installment of the “Lessons for Lawyers” series, “50 Lessons for Lawyers: Earn More. Stress Less. Be Awesome.,” law firm coach Nora Riva Bergman introduces mindfulness into the legal world. In communities where lawyers have previously been expected to attend to the needs of clients and staff above all else, Bergman discusses the benefits of redirecting focus to oneself. By working with the latest strategies in productivity, marketing, and leadership, Bergman allows her readers to consider themselves—as individuals—key to their practice.

Each chapter in the book covers a single lesson, allowing readers to either engage with the book sequentially or skip through according to what seems most relevant or interesting. The lessons in each chapter are simple, easy to implement, and practical above all else.

Read through lessons such as:

  • Lesson 14: Do it. Delegate it. Defer it. Ditch it.
  • Lesson 20: Think of marketing like brushing your teeth. Do it every day.
  • Lesson 29: Join the social media conversation. Teach — don’t sell.
  • Lesson 32: See your firm from your client’s eyes. Create a unique experience.
  • Lesson 44: Money matters, but it’s not the most important thing.

Packed with tools for success, the book takes a motivational approach, aiming to help the inert lawyer get back in motion through self-awareness and reflection. Bergman not only seeks to change the current mindset of her readers, she also concludes every lesson with practical ways to use her advice in the real world, demonstrating her call to action. Bergman understands that in law, as in all fields, it’s not only about the knowing, it’s about the doing.
