My job as a litigator and trial attorney in a high-stress practice was making me sick. I was almost ready to throw in the towel. Working with Judith turned my life around and helped me build tools around resiliency, making sure my practice fit with my values, and navigating conflict. Now I am thriving in my career and feel very fulfilled in my work. I now think of being a lawyer as a career instead of just a job."

Your course was extremely valuable, especially during bar prep! I made sure to focus as much as a could, but gave myself ample mental breaks. I meditated, and made sure to self-evaluate to see how I was doing mentally. At one point, I recognized that after really tuning into myself, I needed to change course. I listened to myself and I’m happy to report that I was successful. The lessons of your class were extremely helpful. Thank you for everything you taught me!"
have been a tremendous help to me over this past year. I look forward to keeping in touch with you."
I used the steps you gave us for dealing with moments of "mental hijack," and it really worked! I am a member of the Negotiation Honors program and we are preparing for a competition in Houston, Texas at the end of this month. I panicked before a practice round and it seemed like all the information escaped my mind right before I was supposed to make an introduction. I then remembered what you said, started to breathe, and collected myself."
Yesterday far exceeded my expectations (and I had high expectations going in to the meeting.) I think we all appreciate you giving us the forum to speak freely and communicate so well, and hear one another better than we have in some time. I'm looking forward to regular meetings in the future to keep the momentum going."
