9781604428629: Lawyers as Peacemakers: Practicing Holistic, Problem-Solving Law

This book explores the question: What if lawyers were peacemakers, problem-solvers and healers of conflicts?  

Lawyers as Peacemakers can teach lawyers new ways of finding satisfaction in law practice and to provide comprehensive, solution-focused services to clients. Sometimes it's not about winning a battle, it's about finding the best possible answer for everyone involved.

Law practice can focus on a more holistic, humanistic, solution-based approach to resolving legal problems, an approach that many clients want and need.

About the Author:

J. Kim Wright is the publisher and managing editor of CuttingEdgeLaw.com. She and her business partner, Michael Matthews, have interviewed over one hundred lawyers, law professors, law students, judges, and allied professionals who are working to create a new paradigm of legal practice. She coaches lawyers on transforming their law practices and finding the right livelihood. A member of the North Carolina Bar, she occasionally practices law and has been an adjunct professor at three colleges. She develops continuing legal education programs and has published many articles and chapters in magazines and other books. She is involved in several think-tanks and support circles and is working on two primetime documentary series about law.

Review:

The adversarial atmosphere & combative confrontational approach ultimately wear thin on the brows or psyches of those whose sole aim is to bring order & stability to the lives of they who seek their services. --Huffington Post, by Saul Segan

Lawyers as Peacemakers is about a movement--a paradigm shift--whereby thousands of legal practitioners dare to say that they are bringing love and humanity to the practice of law. --Brooke Deratany Goldfarb, Mediate.com

Lawyers as Peacemakers... includes essays, quotes, interview snippets, profiles and articles written by both Wright and leaders in the various alternative legal processes she explores. --Beyond Chron, Lainey Feingold

.. a must read just for its tips how to balance important, stimulating careers while maintaining a meaningful personal and home life. ---- Forrest (Woody) Mosten, author of Collaborative Divorce Handbook, Mediation Career Guide, etc.,
