Nora Riva Bergman's career journey takes her from musician to lawyer to bar association executive director to a coach for lawyers. “Ampersands” is her term for life passages and turning points. Death of the “Auntie Mame” figure in her life jolted her to rethink her relationship to the law profession. As a practice advisor at Atticus, Nora founded Real Life Practice, teaching attorneys work-life balance and how to gain self-knowledge, to help lawyers become better lawyers, and better people. Self-knowledge is key, she tells her clients.
