Hi, we’re Jessi & Megan

In Summer 2013, we were two law students living in Washington, DC who bonded over our mutual concern about what’s next?

We had followed all the rules: gone to law school, done every activity, internship, and clinical program available, and worked our butts off. We both knew we wanted to use our JDs to make an impact, do creative work, and earn a decent living. But the options available to us seemed so limited and none of them left space for our non-negotiable bottom lines.

Find Freedom and Love What You Do

Luckily, we are dreamers, doers, and creators. So, we dove into the legal profession with the goal of creating work that we loved. Jessi started her estate planning practice right out of law school, using her entrepreneurial drive and passion for systems to create a hugely successful practice in just a few years. Megan went the nonprofit route, working with businesses and community groups and learning everything she could about community development and creative problem-solving.

In the depths of Winter 2017, after years of friendship and many, many long conversations about building a better way to practice law, we decided to do something about it. We created Juris Diction with a simple vision: by using systems, a little tech savvy, and some business know-how, anyone can create a legal business that allows them to THRIVE. Being a lawyer doesn’t have to mean late nights, no time for family, and being tied to your desk (in a single jurisdiction) for the rest of your life. In today’s digital world, there is a way to bring the practice of law into the 21st century and earn more than you ever thought possible.

And then, we did it! Armed with the vision, we built a six-figure additional income stream in less than three months, which gave us the freedom to untie our income from hourly work, travel, take breaks, and even build a Mastermind program that we LOVE. After years of working hard to make law work for us, we are now thriving in our zones of genius. We do what we want and love to do, and we are here to help you do the same.

Through our online courses, free webinars, incredible Facebook community, and transformation-making, soul-igniting THRIVE mastermind, we are helping attorneys around the country build sustainable law practices that supports their freedom and boosts their income!
