The Anxious Lawyer provides a straightforward 8-week introductory program on meditation and mindfulness, created by lawyers for lawyers. The program draws on examples from Cho and Gifford's professional and personal lives to create an accessible and enjoyable entry into practices that can reduce anxiety, improve focus and clarity, and enrich the quality of life.
Lawyers lead professions in depression, substance abuse, and suicide. This need not be part of the legal profession that we take for granted. The Anxious Lawyer is an important book: a practical, week-by-week guide to help cope with stress and anxiety through meditation and mindfulness — written for lawyers, by lawyers.

These are stressful times for lawyers. In my work promoting increased professionalism, I see over and again that stress is a huge contributing factor to the problem of overly-aggressive and uncivil lawyer behavior. The Anxious Lawyer contains a treasure trove of practical advice for reducing stress and reflexive action through meditation techniques. I recommend this book to any lawyer seeking to have a more satisfying personal life and professional career.
Anyone who has a busy professional life serving others, whether it is in the legislature, the boardroom or the courtroom, can benefit from a daily practice that mitigates stress, improves focus and helps reconnect us with ourselves and our own values. This book offers an easy to follow program for beginning a meditation practice, written by lawyers and for lawyers.
