WELCOME TO THE THRIVE COMMUNITY.

We’re Jessi and Megan — creative lawpreneurs working to build a new generation of solo practitioners who love being lawyers. We work with attorneys around the United States to help them develop practices that support their dream lifestyles and bring freedom to their day-to-day.

Being a lawyer doesn’t have to be all about sacrifice, and running your own practice doesn’t have to be so hard. Together, we share techniques, ideas, and systems that create a more automated practice, more control over your schedule, and a far more profitable business.

Our Thriving Lawyers Society

is a community of like-minded attorneys who want to become thriving entrepreneurs.

What does it mean to THRIVE?

To us, a thriving attorney is

  • physically, emotionally, and mentally well

  • financially wealthy without spending 24/7 working

  • able to take a vacation and continue earning revenue while away from the office

  • choosing clients you love to serve and limiting your practice to work you enjoy

  • supported and integrated into a community of incredible entrepreneurs

 LET’S BREAK FREE FROM THE OLD MODEL

Remember why you decided to launch your own practice? Was it because you wanted to work for yourself? You wanted more freedom in your day-to-day? You wanted to earn more? You wanted to get out of the rat race and off the partner track?

You started a law practice for a reason (maybe all of the above!). But is your business currently serving those reasons? Are you really running your business, or is it running you?

 

We’re guessing that if you’re here, your law practice isn’t perfect. You are looking for a Sustainable Business Model that allows you to:

  • stop trading time for dollars

  • continue earning revenue even when you are away from your desk

  • shatter the ceiling on your earning potential

  • create a positive impact on the wider world

BUILD A LAW PRACTICE THAT WORKS FOR YOU

Ok, sure. That sounds great. But what does it mean? How is is possible to really transform a law practice to make it 80% automated? How can you increase your revenue by six figures without seeing a single client? How can you shift your work so that it feeds your soul instead of sucking you dry? The answer, we have learned, is to create a Sustainable Law Practice that works for you.

SO, WHAT’S HOLDING YOU BACK?

What keeps you hiding from what needs to change in your law practice? We know, breaking the mold is hard in any profession. In the legal industry, it’s like blasphemy. Every step of your career, from LSATs to Bar Prep to Summer Associate, has been prescribed for you.

If you wanted to do something different, you were shamed”

ISN’T STARTING A FIRM A LITTLE RISKY WHEN YOU STILL OWE STUDENT LOANS?

WHY CAN’T YOU JUST STICK IT OUT AT THE BIG FIRM?

YOU HAVE WORKED SO HARD TO GET HERE, YOU CAN’T DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT NOW.


You know the drill. Questioning and disapproval from every angle. We are here to tell you that you CAN do this. Drop the shame and shoulds and ask yourself, what’s really holding me back? You have all the skills and experience you need to build a thriving law practice. And you know what freedom looks like in your life. Why not create a business that allows you to take six weeks off a year? Work from home three days a week? Travel around the world? Pay off your loans? Buy your dream home?


Whatever your version of freedom looks like,

you can create it.


How It All Started

THE JOURNEY TWO INNOVATIVE ATTORNEYS ARE TAKING TO PROPEL THE LEGAL PROFESSION FORWARD.

Jessi Patton and Megan Wakefield.jpg
 

Hi, we’re Jessi & Megan

In Summer 2013, we were two law students living in Washington, DC who bonded over our mutual concern about what’s next?

We had followed all the rules: gone to law school, done every activity, internship, and clinical program available, and worked our butts off. We both knew we wanted to use our JDs to make an impact, do creative work, and earn a decent living. But the options available to us seemed so limited and none of them left space for our non-negotiable bottom lines.

Find Freedom and Love What You Do

Luckily, we are dreamers, doers, and creators. So, we dove into the legal profession with the goal of creating work that we loved. Jessi started her estate planning practice right out of law school, using her entrepreneurial drive and passion for systems to create a hugely successful practice in just a few years. Megan went the nonprofit route, working with businesses and community groups and learning everything she could about community development and creative problem-solving.

In the depths of Winter 2017, after years of friendship and many, many long conversations about building a better way to practice law, we decided to do something about it. We created Juris Diction with a simple vision: by using systems, a little tech savvy, and some business know-how, anyone can create a legal business that allows them to THRIVE. Being a lawyer doesn’t have to mean late nights, no time for family, and being tied to your desk (in a single jurisdiction) for the rest of your life. There is a way to bring the practice of law into the 21st century and earn more than you ever thought possible.

And then, we did it! Armed with the vision, we built a six-figure additional income stream in less than three months, which gave us the freedom to untie our income from hourly work. It allowed us to travel, take breaks, and even build a Mastermind program that we LOVE. After years of working hard to make law work for us, we are now thriving in our zones of genius. We do what we want and love to do, and we are here to help you do the same.

Through our online courses, free webinars, incredible Facebook community, and transformation-making, soul-igniting THRIVE mastermind, we are helping attorneys around the country build sustainable law practices that support their freedom and boost their income!
