Intersection of Emotion and the Law
Holly and Melody Kramer explore mindfulness in the legal realm through Melody’s book, Lawyers Decoded: Essential Knowledge for Saving Money and Reducing Legal Hassle.
Melody is trial lawyer, author, speaker, innovator and visionary who shares her experiences in the legal arena and how she continuously saw a lack of human connection and caring, and wanted to create change in relationships between lawyers and clients.
Melody talks about how she has even shifted her fee structures to create a more peaceful resolution timeline, by giving incentives for handling cases more quickly.
Some of her recommendation for creating positive outcomes during legal interactions include writing down goals, budget, and expectations so that a client has an upfront understanding of the path they want to forge with their attorney.
Kramer also recommends a life affirming approach of writing your own obituary in order to provide insight into the bigger picture of one’s legacy and estate planning steps that come from this.
