It's no secret that attorneys have high-stress occupations. Consequentially, whereas 10% of adults in the general population are alcoholics, attorneys suffer from alcoholism at a rate of 20%. Alcoholism can have serious social, health, and professional consequences for those in the legal profession. With this program, attorney and author Harvey Hyman will discuss the reasons lawyers have a certain propensity to develop destructive behaviors. He will also cover a number of constructive tools attorneys can use to relieve stress, avoid addiction, and develop a more meaningful life and career.
This speaker is phenomenal for any attorney who deals with substance abuse personally, within the family, and in clients. He is amazing.

While practicing in California from 1986 to 2007 Harvey Hyman repeatedly received the highest rating (AV) for skill and integrity by the Martindale-Hubbell Rating System. During those years Harvey won millions of dollars for clients who sustained a TBI caused by negligence. He also served as a member of the board of the Brain Injury Association of California, wrote many articles on TBI and TBI litigation, and lectured to groups of people interested in TBI including lawyers, health professionals, and TBI survivors. At this time Harvey has transitioned to being an ordained chaplain providing spiritual support to patients in hospitals.
