About Us

The Circle of Success

The Legal Balance is an exclusive community designed to unite, empower and advance women attorneys and to leverage the collective power of an elite group of Chicago professionals. We provide resources to help women in the legal profession efficiently develop their careers, bring in business, hone leadership skills, and create a work/life fit that emphasizes the most meaningful aspects of their lives. Our goal is to connect smart women, creating one authoritative network of knowledge, experience and expertise so our members can live and work with passion and purpose—while teaching them how to develop a book of business.

Members of the Legal Balance have access to inside information and advice from an exclusive cadre of experts on business development, leadership, client relationships, and more. Our members can share and refer business in our exclusive referral forum; engage with our own career mentor, Dear Jane; attend networking events to meet industry leaders; and browse a large database of service providers with exclusive offers to help them manage their lives. 

The community also features standout women leaders who have risen to the top of Chicago’s legal profession, power group members, as well as regular contributors who teach members to manage career detours without sacrificing success, navigate parenting and work/life issues, and more.

Membership costs less than $7.50 a month. Can you afford to be left out? See what 1,500 members already have access to ...
