The Addiction of Law

I was speaking with another Attorney this week about addiction and she brought up the addictive nature of the law.  She said that practicing law can be addictive….

Law addiction is something I’ve never considered.  In my experience, I’ve seen attorneys become addicted to money, power, substances and fighting but I never associated these addictions with a love for the law.

The detailed nature of practicing can be all consuming and so it is important for attorneys to constantly reevaluate and consider their motivations for how they run their practice to ensure that they are always working in the best interests of their clients and in accordance with the rules of ethics.
