Overview

Successful (Happy) Lawyering: Increase Your Bottom Line and Well-Being One Insight at a Time by Lee Broekman, Judith Gordon

The road to legal success is filled with litigating cases, negotiating deals, acquiring recognition, and obtaining status symbols like corner offices, expensive cars, and lavish homes. It's also a road paved with long hours, high stress, constant conflict, addiction, and depression.

In Successful (Happy) Lawyering, authors Lee K. Broekman and Judith Gordon invite practicing and aspiring attorneys to take a close look at their definition of success. How do we achieve success and balance in both our professional and personal lives? How do we reap the rewards of a successful law practice without developing unhealthy habits and hurting personal relationships along the way? To have it all-a profitable career and a great life-we need practices that support both. This book is filled with irresistible information, the latest brain science, and "how-to" steps for achieving joy and satisfaction in law and life, all in a bite-sized, bottom-lined format that is easy for the busy attorney to immediately put to good use.

Law schools and law firms teach students and practitioners of law to disconnect from their emotional selves and be purely analytical and rational in their practices, but this detachment wreaks havoc on their lives and professions. To be successful and draw in joy, satisfaction, and less chaos, we are called to integrate our emotional and intellectual selves. As experts in the field of legal coaching and executive education, Broekman and Gordon offer lawyers tips and tools, ideas and insights, and exercises and skills to lead powerful law practices as well as positive and productive lives.

Learn how to develop business and build relationships; discover how to manage profitable practices and positive personnel; become better at managing time and stress; cultivate curiosity, and communicate information with clarity and confidence; connect with juries, and create persuasive presentations to clients; and resolve conflicts, and advance your career opportunities. Successful (Happy) Lawyering is easy to read and easy to apply to your own work and life.

As a law student, I have spent a lot of time thinking about how, as a lawyer, I can be most useful to the clients I hope to serve. Before reading this book, I thought that in order to figure out how to be most useful, the question I had to answer was "What kind of lawyer will I be?" However, this book has taught me that in order to maximize not only my usefulness, but my happiness and sustainability, the question to ask and answer is "What kind of person will I be as I practice law?" As I have engaged in the process of cultivating an answer to this question, my stress about my uncertain future has plummeted, because I know that I can be certain that no matter what being a lawyer looks like for me, I will be guided by my authentic relationships with clients and colleagues, as well as my own vision for who I wish to be in this work. This book has taught me these lessons, and affirms them when I need a reminder. I'm so grateful to have come across it, and look forward to seeing how its meaning evolves for me as I develop my legal career. I definitely recommend it!
