Finding a community as a “non-traditional” lawyer can be a challenge. Today I chat with Nneka Norville one of the masterminds behind More Than Esquire Network, a platform for lawyers just like you. We chat about the community Nneka is building of non-traditional lawyers in order to support them in their search for professional fulfillment. Enjoy the show!


What you’ll learn:

  • About Nneka’s transition from entertainment law to corporate social responsibility 
  • Why Nneka transitioned out of entertainment law
  • Steps for figuring out a new career path
  • How More Than Esquire Network came to be
  • Strategies for staving off burnout
  • The importance of making your own decisions

Best Advice for Finding Happiness

“Fear. Fear of what people are going to say. Fear of making the wrong decision. Fear of what the future holds.”


“To get past that fear you need to arm yourself with knowledge, information, resources, and really that human connection.”
