Linda R. Evers, Esq.
Linda R. Evers is creator and owner of The Connection College. The Connection College exists to help lawyers grow their business by focusing on connecting and creating authentic relationships. In 2010 Linda joined the law firm of Stevens & Lee bringing with her over 19 years experience as an in-house counsel. Although successful in her career, she knew it was time for a change. With the support of her husband and son, Linda decided to leave what many considered to be a stable job at a large utility and joined Stevens & Lee with NO clients. In less than 12 months, she was promoted to Chair of the Energy, Communications and Public Utilities group.
Linda’s ability to connect with and retain clients stems from her own experience as a client. Tasked with growing a book of business from scratch, Linda leveraged her in-house counsel background. Ditching pitch books and networking, Linda’s authenticity leads to meaningful connections and ultimately clients. With a desire to help others connect their way to a book of business, Linda created The Connection College.
JD - University of Illinois, College of Law, Champaign, Illinois (1991)
