One of the hardest things about the private practice of law is the number of hours most lawyers work. TV shows and movies about lawyers don’t show the long hours reading published opinions and deposition transcripts. (And rightfully so, it just wouldn’t be entertainment.) When you work too much, the rest of your life suffers, including important relationships. The Summer issue of LawPro Magazine was just released on the web yesterday. Its focus is Work and Wellness. I’d be very happy to mention this great feature even if they hadn’t included a reprint of an essay from yours truly. Do a good deed today and pass this link along to a friend. We all can benefit from thinking and reading about maintaining better balance in our lives.

I’d also like to publicly thank LawPro and PracticePro for placing their content on the web freely available to everyone instead of locking it behind a policyholder’s only password.
