One’s career can be an elusive quest; the law is no exception. Indeed, many lawyers express long-term dissatisfaction with their jobs and seek their true passion elsewhere. In fact, they will often stop practicing law altogether and take the plunge to pursue other interests on a full- time basis. Why the endemic unhappiness? We have all heard countless times that the law is a “jealous mistress,” all-consuming and an endless source of stress.

The pessimistic view that the grass is always greener on the other side fails to recognize that almost every other profession has also become much more demanding and stressful, particularly since the onset of the latest recession. There is little, if any, indication that these demands will abate any time soon. Thus, it is incumbent upon each of us lawyers to channel our focus and energy on making the most of their careers. Now is the time to change that which is within our control, accept what we cannot change and have the wisdom to know the difference. That’s why John has created an atmosphere indicative of the term Boutique Law Firm.
