CLE Connect™ | Ethical Marketing CLEs On-Demand

For the past 25 years, Terrie S. Wheeler, MBC has worked as a legal marketing expert in the Twin Cities. After serving as an in-house marketing director for 12 years, she decided to start her own company called PSM Marketing in 1997. Since then, Terrie has coached hundreds of lawyers in Minnesota and throughout the nation on how to successfully retain and grow their existing relationships, attract new clients, increase their name recognition and awareness, and create targeted and effective communications to help their practices grow.

In addition, Terrie recently completed a six-year term on the Lawyers Professional Responsibility Board where, for the last two years, she served as its Vice Chair. Terrie decided it was time to merge her strong background in legal ethics with her years serving as a marketing coach and consultant to lawyers. The result is a unique combination of marketing coaching-level content that just happens to come with ethics CLE credit!

On-Demand Marketing Coaching for Minnesota Attorneys

Having helped so many clients through the years, Terrie wanted to take her marketing coaching process one step further. In August 2018, she launched a new service called CLE Connect | Ethical Marketing CLEs On-Demand. CLE Connect is the culmination of Terrie’s years of experience, feedback from real Minnesota lawyers, and an amazing online educational platform. Her goal in creating this service was to make her coaching content available to as many attorneys as possible at a price any lawyer could afford. Whether you’ve just passed the bar or are looking to continue your growth trajectory, CLE Connect has relevant coaching content for you.

CLE Connect offers easy-to-use, relevant and important on-demand CLE opportunities.  I felt like Terrie was with me in my office talking about the ethical rules related to marketing.  The written materials were well-done and Terrie’s conversational style and real life experiences made the CLE come to life.  Thank you for developing this useful product!
