Coffee Talk: How does being a lawyer affect your family life?

My wife says I sound angry when I just think I am being emphatic or clarifying.

Mark  W. Frisbie

Before I took up boxing and kickboxing, being a lawyer meant bringing a lot of stress and distractions back to my family life, but not any longer. Exercise before coming home relaxes me and since everything at work is privileged and/or confidential, I am able to process physically what I can’t say verbally at the gym. It is nice to switch from being in my brain, to focusing on my body. I leave being a lawyer at work and come home from boxing and Muay Thai as a relaxed human once again.

My husband has been incredibly supportive. Our adult children have adapted well. The cat remains unimpressed…

I work from home so other than annoying my wife with an extremely messy office, it works out perfectly. I am almost always around when our daughter gets home from school and when work is slow, the housework gets done (sometimes).
