Precious’ legal industry expertise is invaluable to attorneys throughout the lifecycle of their careers. My firm engaged Precious twice to speak to law students on "The Business of Law." The audience raved that her presentation was ‘great overall,’ ‘had great pace and interaction,’ and was ‘very informative and enlightening,’ featuring ‘brutal honesty which was super useful.’

Our firm engaged Mountaintop for an unprecedented virtual group coaching experience. They were able to get the group talking and sharing while also maintaining the balance of ‘educating’ in a virtual setting. They were wonderful to work with and brought a lot of value to the firm.

Must Have Courses
We work with lawyers and those who train and develop them every day. Over years of law firm training, one-on-one and group coaching sessions, and regular conversations with law firm professional development professionals and leaders, two areas key to attorney success and law firm profitability consistently come to the forefront - and are also consistently overlooked:
- Understanding how law firms make money and why it matters as an individual attorney
- Understanding what it means to think like an owner of your career and of the firm
