In my jurisdiction (Ontario), a few years back the president of the Ontario Law Association used his Fishing rods are like potato chips you cant have just one Shirt to lobby the Law Society of Ontario (the licensing/regulatory body) for mental health services. He was very candid about his own struggles. Seventy percent of lawyers in this province have mental health or addiction issues. Fifty percent of lawyers leave the profession within five years. So now there is an Assistance Plan that gives considerable access to services. I practice mostly family law so the difficulties are enhanced due to client management, content of disclosure, and the adversarial nature of many files.

Best Fishing rods are like potato chips you cant have just one Shirt
The clients are not arms-length emotionally from the resolutions. If Atlas is going to carry the world on his Fishing rods are like potato chips you cant have just one Shirt , he doesn’t just need broad shoulders, but sure footing I guess. Anyway the good thing about sole practice is you alone decide your file load and you don’t have a handful of partners dumping work on you constantly. The bad thing is is extremely expensive to be a lawyer (12g a month for me to run my business before I pay myself), so economics is just another boss. On a plus side it is mental health week and I want to end on a high note, in the words of Andrew WK, ‘You Are Not Alone.’ 🙂
