WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Join this 1-hour webinar for helpful meditation techniques to take the stress out of legal representation.
TBA RPC & ABA Model RULE 1.1: Competence § A lawyer shall provide competent representation to a client. Competent representation requires the legal knowledge, skill, thoroughness, and preparation reasonably necessary for the representation.
Stress can be a serious threat to your ability to competently represent your clients. But, there are plenty of ways to mitigate stress on the job, and one of the easiest is simple meditation. Meditation not only makes you more relaxed, but it will improve your ability to control your reactions in stressful situations – meaning your legal representation will be more effective and provide better outcomes for your clients.
