When I started practicing law, I gave some thought to how I wanted to balance the work I do for clients with my life outside of the office. I considered how my personal work- life balance would affect me and my work. In law, there is often a “no boundaries” mindset. Attorneys may make themselves available all the time through email, phone, or texting. This certainly has its benefits. It’s always good to be there when a client has

questions or concerns related to his or her case. This is especially true when a client is in a tough situation and needs someone to turn to — that solid footing. At the same time, it’s good to have room for yourself as an attorney. You need time to recharge and clear your head. At Fleschner, Stark, Tanoos & Newlin, we have an interesting dynamic, because it’s very much a family firm. When I leave the office, I may spend even more time with coworkers. We may talk shop, talk about the day, or discuss different cases. Sometimes the lines between work and life become a little blurred. When I became an attorney, I realized how important it is to spend time with friends and family and put “shop talk” aside. One of our core values at the firm is family, and family always comes first. We encourage our employees to pick up their kids from school, attend field trips, and never miss a game. Employees are not pressured to stay at the office when they need to be with family.
To help strike a balance between work and family, I’ve built blocks of time into my schedule that are just for me. This is time to recharge and to be with family. It’s the best of both worlds. In the mornings, for instance, I have time set aside to meditate. It helps bring the day into focus. It’s about recentering myself and clearing my mind. In the evenings, I may wind down with a book or go for a run. I’m an avid runner. It’s a great way to stay in shape, but more than that, it helps clear my head. The stress melts away and I feel great. At the end of the day, it’s important to find time to recharge. No matter your profession, it can be challenging to find that time, but it’s almost always worth it. When I come into the office feeling refreshed each morning, I’m certain it shows in the work I do for clients. That’s the balance for me. I love my work, I love being there for our clients, but I can’t forget about myself or my family in the process.
Our referrals continue to be one of the best ways clients find us, and we deeply appreciate it! for your trust and confidence. Thank you
