Busy Lawyers Must Learn to Say No

There's a saying that goes, “If you want something done, ask the busiest person in the room.” Many of us have been that person at one time or another or felt a pang of guilt or envy because we weren’t. As lawyers, we are expected to burn the candle at both ends. Successful lawyers not only do their work and handle their cases but are also active in their community and profession. And every successful rainmaker knows the key to bringing in new business is contacts and visibility! Unfortunately, the price of this success is often organizational burnout, stress, anxiety and depression.
