Mindful Law Firm™ programs are informed by research, awareness of the body and brain, including Justine’s work as a yoga and mindfulness teacher.

While there has been an uptick in law firms, law schools, and courts around the country embracing the mission of creating better environments for legal professionals, significant work remains to be done. Justine’s wellness programs work to identify paths to support individuals dealing with substance abuse issues and other mental health concerns that are rampant in the legal profession, like depression, stress, and anxiety.
