Our Story.JPG


The inspiration for MTEN was borne out of countless conversations with lawyers and JDs that have exciting new careers, ventures or businesses that are non-traditional with no opportunity to network with their peers who have similar backgrounds. Through educational and social events, digital resources and up-to-date information, MTEN members gain the knowledge and connections they need to be successful beyond the practice of law.



The name "More Than Esquires" was inspired by the idea that as a community we are more than lawyers and JDs, in fact "Esquire" is just the beginning. In addition to being lawyers, we are writers, educators, philanthropists, startup founders, technologists, entrepreneurs, and the list goes on.  As a network of professionals with varied interests, we are more than esquires. 



To help elevate lawyers & legal professionals by leveraging their law degree for non-traditional legal careers in providing the tools and connections they need to own their future.



Creating a community through innovation, education and collaboration in the legal industry with a strong, supportive peer network in fulfillment of their personal & professional development.
