Being a dedicated lawyer does not require sacrificing personal goals and relationships with loved ones. There’s no golden key, magic pill, or secret strategy to “having it all.” Sprinting back and forth between your desk and daycare until you’re dizzy isn’t balance. Avoiding vacations until your practice hits a specific profit ratio isn’t being fair to yourself, either. For most attorneys, achieving balance comes after accepting that protecting personal time is just as crucial as work time. Are you struggling with these or similar issues?
If you’re running a practice while caring for loved ones, then join our webinar series: Parenting, Partnering & Practicing.
Attorneys Michele Fuller and Cary Moss share strategies you can use to successfully manage three major responsibilities that most small law firm owners struggle to balance: Parenting (from raising kids to caring for an elderly parent). Partnering (in marriage or living with a significant other). Practicing (owning and managing a law firm).
