In this episode of Personal Jurisdiction we chat with Jeena Cho, JD, Legal Mindfulness Consultant and Coach. Jeena shares how her tendency to outwork everyone around her led to a mindfulness and meditation practice that became integral to her legal practice and ability to continue working in a demanding legal career. She also discusses her transition from bankruptcy lawyer to Legal Mindfulness Consultant and Coach, how becoming a mother has impacted her career and personal life, and why she unexpectedly decided to write The Anxious Lawyer - an 8 Week Guide to a Joyful and Satisfying Law Practice. Don't miss Jeena's tips for new lawyers and law students on maintaining a healthy, thriving legal practice as well as the due diligence portion of the show, where we share one of Jeena's meditations!
