Brian Cuban was living a lie. With a famous last name and a successful career as a lawyer, Brian was able to hide his clinical depression and alcohol and cocaine addictions—for a while. <br /><br />Today, as an inspirational speaker in long-term recovery, Brian looks back on his journey with honesty, compassion, and even humor as he reflects both on what he has learned about himself and his career choice and how the legal profession enables addiction. His demons, which date to his childhood, controlled him through failed marriages and stays in a psychiatric facility, until they brought him to the brink of suicide. That was his wake-up call. This is his story.<br /><br />Brian also takes an in-depth look at why there is such a high percentage of problematic alcohol use and other mental health issues in the legal profession. What types of therapies work? Are 12-step programs the only answer? Brian also includes interviews with experts on the subject as well as others in the profession who are now in recovery. The Addicted Lawyer is both a serious study of addiction and a compelling story of redemption. <br />

<h2>What does the practice of law have to do with the Ironman triathlon?</h2> <br /><h3>Building a law practice is the dream of every lawyer. There is no better option to maintain control over your career: your practice area, your clients, your income. Starting a solo law practice or small law firm may be the most personally and financially rewarding endeavor you ever take on as a lawyer. It may also be the hardest. But nothing worth having or doing comes easy. <br /><br />The same is true for the Ironman race. <br /><br />Ironman is a grueling undertaking that entails over 140 miles of combined swimming, biking, and running. Only the most serious competitors successfully complete it. The exhilaration of doing so is something few get to enjoy. <br /><br />There is a common spirit underlying Ironman and starting a solo law practice or small law firm. Those who succeed must have the same foundational mindset in common. They are determined, dedicated, ambitious, and able to stay motivated in the face of obstacles. Whether you know it or not, these are traits you have within you, and <b>Practice Law Like An Ironman</b> will help you develop them and focus them toward successfully building your law practice. <br /><br />So if every lawyer dreams of going solo or starting a small firm, why doesn’t every lawyer do it? Maybe they don’t know how. Maybe they are afraid. Maybe they tried and it did not go as they hoped. Maybe they have doubts about their dedication, determination, and motivation. <br /><br />The good news is that every lawyer can go solo. Every lawyer can overcome whatever obstacle stands in their way. Being a successful solo or small firm practitioner is not reserved for those from the best law schools, or the highest GPAs. Successfully starting a solo law practice or small law firm is all about developing the mindset for success and maintaining the motivation to finish the race. From developing your vision of success to developing step-by-step systems that guide you in law practice management, setting up your law practice, law firm marketing, getting and benefiting from referrals, case management, hiring and managing employees, choosing law practice technology, crafting law firm strategy, . <br /><br /><b>Practice Law Like An Ironman</b> is a practical and useful mix of motivational coaching and law practice how-to “checklists.” Motivational techniques such as visualization, affirmations, and goal-setting are practiced universally by successful persons in all fields. Steven R. Adams tailors these techniques to the lawyer building a law practice. Learn how to develop a vision and maintain a positive and fearless mindset that will guide you on your quest to success as an entrepreneur in the field of law. <br /><br /><b>Practice Law Like An Ironman</b> also includes practical instructional checklists for starting a solo law practice or small law firm to help you with the nuts and bolts of building a law practice, including choosing and equipping a location, law firm marketing, law firm strategy, winning clients and referrals, law practice management, leading your employees, and developing a remarkable message to differentiate yourself from the competition. <br /><br />Whether you are a beginning lawyer, a big firm attorney who is ready to go solo, or you need to breathe life into your established small law firm, Practice Law Like An Ironman is an indispensable guide to ignite and jumpstart your law practice.

Product Description
Customer Reviews
Dermot McNamara, barrister, who last appeared in Brief Cases, continues his journey through life inside and outside the courts of Ireland. Now somewhat established as a junior counsel, the pigeonhole is rarely empty but Dermot must try to ensure the continuity of the thin stream of briefs coming his way, while, at the same time, dealing with the many demands of his solicitors, the eccentricities of judges, the responsibilities of family life and the success of his wife’s own legal career.<br /><br />Such pleasures as those partaken of in A Night at the Inns really do not help his chances, but there may be some hope of redemption if he succeeds for his illustrious Fitzwilliam Square solicitor, Mr Philips, while they are both 'Down from Dublin'. Back at base in The Four Courts, Dermot tackles a case that arises from the unfortunate results of a long St Patrick’s Day in the Pink Palace bar. Were the adventures of ecumenical affairs correspondent Barbara Sorenson on the Costa del Sol as compromising as a daily newspaper alleges? Dermot must prove to the contrary, against all odds and the mysterious disappearance of senior counsel at the crucial moment.<br /><br />Where the living of life interacts with the dispensing of justice, Dermot McNamara plies his trade. As he continues to strive for success, he describes with humour the lapses in communication, misunderstandings and occasional bombshells that hinder his professional career, and can turn a serious day in court into something verging on the farcical.

<p>Like the very popular first edition, this second edition puts the reader in the place of a first-year attorney faced with real life assignments. In doing so, it teaches law students not only how to succeed in law school, but also how to succeed in the practice of law. Using graphics and visual samples, the book shows best practices in both traditional and electronic environments. Speaking to its readers in a straightforward manner, <em>A Lawyer Writes</em> communicates essential skills and theories so that they will be retained for a lifetime of legal practice.</p><br /><p>There are two significant changes in the second edition of <i>A Lawyer Writes.</i> First, two new chapters have been added: Chapter 17, <i>Client Letters</i>, and Chapter 19, <i>The Transition from Objective to Persuasive Writing</i>. (What was Chapter 17, <i>Professional E-mails,</i> will appear as Chapter 18.) In addition, section 8.3, <i>Applying the Law: Counter-Analyses</i>, has been re-organized, but the content has remained the same. All other updates to the book are smaller edits that fix errors, create consistency, or further clarify an existing idea.</p><br /><p><strong>A teaching website is available. To request the link and login information, please email meade (at) cap-press (dot) com.</strong></p><br />The following book reviews are from the first edition.<br /><br /><br /><p>“<i>A Lawyer Writes </i>made a great difference in my teaching this year.  The book explains concisely the expectations of lawyers regarding organization of legal analysis and then explicitly shows law students how to meet those expectations.  The frequent examples are a great complement to the clear and accessible text.” — <em>Suzanne Rowe, Luvaas Faculty Fellow 2008-09, Director, Legal Research and Writing, Associate Professor of Law, University of Oregon</em></p><br /><p>“One of the best parts of <em>A Lawyer Writes</em> is its chapter explaining rules. After my students read that chapter, they really seemed to understand the concept that rules can be stated implicitly in the cases, and that it was their job to make those rules explicit for their readers. The book also provides a number of excellent, easy-to-understand examples in every chapter, which the students found very helpful.” — <em>Alison Julien, Associate Professor of Legal Writing, Marquette University Law School</em></p><br /><p>“<em>A Lawyer Writes</em> is the perfect book for the first semester of Legal Writing. It explains the foundations of legal reasoning, illustrates those foundations with practical examples, and is an exemplary model of its own lessons about good legal writing.” — <em>Steve Johansen, Professor of Law, Lewis & Clark Law School</em></p>
