Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
This inspirational book will give everyone in the legal profession a whole new perspective. A call to integrate the practice of law with the practice of spirituality, this book provides the means to creating a meaningful and personally fulfilling law practice. With stories from lawyers who have made the leap, author Steven Keeva shows that lawyers can demonstrate their caring and compassion.
Publishing Staff NTC
"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
