Optimize Your Career With Support


As a lawyer looking to return to practice after many years away from the profession, I found working with Carroll to be invaluable in terms of helping refine my focus and directing me on the all important first steps back to work. Carroll was very clear in presenting what I needed to do (and not do) to successfully re-establish myself professionally. All advice, on matters big and small, was incredibly useful and helped me to see things I could not see myself. Her perspective was enormously helpful in guiding me to explore areas that were not obvious to me and to be open to what could follow. She seemed to see both the big picture and the small picture and managed both seamlessly.
My own distance from the current workforce was intimidating and the first steps forward were fraught with great indecision and self-doubt, but Carroll’s steady and wise counsel helped move me forward in every way. I feel like she helped me make some great decisions and I only felt support, not pressure, from her. Once professionally situated, there were other issues that emerged which she counseled me through brilliantly, saving me from myself.
So much of her work with me was convincing me that my return to practice was indeed in reach and once I allowed myself to believe her, I was on my way.

Her insight and guidance were the pivotal factors in my transition back to the legal field. Carroll took the time to listen and understand my individual needs and strengths.
