Immigration lawyers are frequently driven, diligent, and intense. Many work long hours and weekends, putting client interest above their own. This sounds positive, but it can often cross over into workaholism impacting interpersonal relationships and the lawyer’s mental health. Join us for a roundtable discussion on how to shut off the lawyer brain when it’s time to stop working.

Discussion Topics

  • How to Identify Workaholism
  • Tools for Turning Off a Racing, Work-Focused Internal Dialogue
  • How to Begin to Repair Relationships
