Nov 15, 2016

On today’s show I chat with Nicole Abboud, the host of the Gen Y Lawyer podcast and founder of Abboud Media. Nicole started her career as a family law attorney before transitioning into fashion law and finally she deciding to launch her own social media consulting firm for lawyers Abboud. On the show, she shares her thoughts on using social media in the legal profession and best practices for using social media as a young associate. 


What you’ll learn:

  • How her podcast gave her courage to leave the practice of law
  • Why lawyers should be using social media
  • Best ways to use social media as a young associate
  • When to call it quits on any particular social media platform



“Start Now. Don’t take so much time just to think about things.”
