Your Situation

Early on in their careers, many lawyers are shocked to discover that the realities of practice are very unlike the attorney portrayed in television and movies.

Career Dissatisfaction

Recent studies indicate that the number of attorneys expressing career dissatisfaction has sharply escalated. The reasons are:
  • Lack of growth potential or security
  • Severe, negative impacts on marriage, parenting and quality of life
  • Long work hours filled with repetitive drudgery of motions and depositions
  • Seven day work weeks
  • Little or no sense of fulfillment from their work
  • Stress related to creating billable hours
  • Fierce competition in the courtroom, as well as in the office

Unintended Consequences

This in turn is causing wide-spread substance abuse, mental health, and wellness issues for lawyers including:
  • Depression
  • Anxiety, and
  • Substance abuse
… which can all contribute to stress-related illnesses including heart disease “because of the unique interplay of the legal profession and lawyer personality” (per the ABA Journal).
