Overview

From law school to the law firm, lawyers are taught and encouraged to win, with little regard to the emotional consequences. After years of being obsessed with winning, racking up billable hours, and fishing for clients, many lawyers lose sight of why they initially joined the ranks of the legal profession.

This landmark book explains how to reconnect with the spiritual side of law practice. It presents profiles of firms and lawyers who have transformed their practices from heartless and cold professional endeavors into kinder, gentler operations, with more emphasis on the clients'—and their own—emotional and spiritual needs.

"In these anxious times, the legal profession has needed a focused discussion on how lawyers can and should balance their professional and personal lives. The lessons in Transforming Practices will inspire and inform that discussion. I commend the ABA Journal for giving the profession this tool to help us be better and happier in our practices." --PHILIP S. ANDERSON, President, The American Bar Association

"Steven Keeva's book is a godsend. It should not only be read, but cherished. The transformative power of his ideas comes like a long-overdue rain to the parched and thirsty desert of our profession's soul." --JAN RICHARD SCHLICHTMANN, Plaintiff's Attorney depicted in Jonathan Harr's A Civil Action
