Attorneys and Addiction

We've written in the past about getting help with law school stress. Sometimes, it helps to have the message come from someone in recovery and who happens to be a likeable comic. Marc Maron recently spoke to an addiction medicine specialist about his path to sobriety and just how hard it is. (Note: the interview transcript is not without swear words.)

Long story short, if you're having trouble with the pressures of law school or law practice, get help. On the flip side, if you represent a client with addiction issues, take a minute to read Mr. Maron's interview for some insights on working with clients like him.
