After-Hours: Helping with Work-Life Balance

Do you own your practice or does it own you? Many criminal and personal injury attorneys confess that their practice owns them. The freedom of being your own boss often includes significant family-life and private-life sacrifices, keeping you chained to your work. Legal Call 24 can break those chains and allow you to take charge over your practice.

 

Small Firm Challenges

Though there advantages to owning a small firm, there are a lot of challenges as well. The necessity of working long hours coupled with the unpredictability of those hours present the greatest challenges to enjoying one of your kid's little league games, a special night out with your spouse, or taking classes to improve your practice. Keeping conventional (9 to 5) work hours allow for participation in activities like these, but most small firms can't afford to operate that way. The need for a greater work-life balance often goes unanswered.
