Discovering the Y of Law

Hey there Gen Why’er!

As you can tell in the picture to the left, I’m a pretty happy person. But rewind just 5 years, to when I first passed the bar and started practicing, and you’ll see a completely different picture. A few months into my lawyerhood, I noticed I was unhappy, stressed, and unsatisfied every day.  I chucked it up to being an overwhelmed new lawyer in the wrong practice area (initially, I practiced Family Law). As time went on and my unhappiness grew, I began to realize that it wasn’t the lack of experience or the practice area I was in, it was the entire practice of law that made me unhappy. So I decided to change my perspective! I opened my own law practice focusing on Fashion Law. After 2 years of practicing on my own, I realized that my heart just wasn’t in the practice of law all together. So I left! My two year solo journey led me to creating this podcast.

Now, I run a social media and content marketing company aimed at helping lawyers build more valuable relationships with clients. Along with running my new business, Abboud Media, (you can find that over at www.nicoleabboud.com/workwithme), I like to spend my time volunteering and meeting people, usually through bar associations or community organizations. I get excited talking to fellow young attorneys and hearing about all of the amazing things they’re accomplishing. I have 2 siblings (I’m the middle child!), 2 adorable nephews, and I run for fun.

I’ve been running since my high school cross country days and will continue to run until my knees give out.

Now that you know a little bit more about me, I want to get to know a little bit more about you. Connect with me through LinkedIn (Nicole Abboud), Twitter (@nicoleabboud), Instagram (@nic_abboud), or email (nicole@genwhylawyer.com) and just say hello!
