“As an experienced lawyer and psychotherapist I understand very well the unique challenges for law firms as they try to balance the demands of an extremely stressful profession with the desire of all those who work therein to have a healthy mind, body, and soul. It is not only O.K. to talk about these things, it is imperative to talk about them to maintain and strengthen the firm.”

KAREN HURWITZ & ASSOCIATES Behavioral Consulting is designed to help law firms and corporate legal departments promote and improve organizational health and productivity. Our services involve using a pair of clinically trained and experienced outside eyes to help firms identify and resolve internal challenges, thereby increasing the effectiveness of the firm.

All firms occasionally face challenges. The challenges are not bad in and of themselves. They can become a problem and begin to undermine a firm when there is an unwillingness to acknowledge them and attempt to resolve them. Issues can arise around a myriad of relationships and topics. They might involve attracting and retaining good lawyers or charting a new path for the changing legal landscape.

The costs associated with unresolved challenges are real and their resolution need not be so difficult. Moreover, resolution does not necessarily come from being a great lawyer. In fact, sometimes it requires setting legal skills aside and looking through a different lens.

Behavioral Consulting is not therapy; it is, however, performed by a trained and experienced therapist. Behavioral consulting provides a process and a forum to help discuss and resolve the challenges your firm faces. When firms take steps to gather information and discuss concerns they can more readily be identified and resolved.

We lead individual and group discussions and brainstorming sessions, conduct survey of attitudes and provide coaching. We also speak on various topics, including how to attract and retain clients and how to cope with stress, burnout and depression.

Firms may be surprised at how hearing and addressing challenges can make a big difference in attitudes and quality of work. Let KAREN HURWITZ & ASSOCIATES help your office become a healthier and more productive place to work.
