The Legal Life is Not for the Weak

Whether you’re fresh off the bar exam or hitting your stride after hanging a shingle a few years ago, one thing’s for certain: independent attorneys who start a solo or small-law practice live with a certain amount of stress.

Non-attorneys would think the stress comes from preparing for a big trial, deposing a hostile witness, or crafting the perfect contract for a picky client.

But that’s nothing compared to the constant, nagging, real-life kind, the kind you get from the day-to-day grind of being a law-abiding attorney.

Specifically, stress from:

  • Not answering client calls because you don’t have time right now to research their case and give them updates.
  • Failing to back up your hard drive that has everything (literally everything) on it, just after you see the “blue screen of death.”
  • Uncertainty over whether or not your new client is really, for sure, unconnected to any of your other clients.
  • The potential that your court date was moved and you forgot to record it.
  • Lagging on invoicing clients because you’re not 100% sure you’ve logged their billables properly.
