Cohen, and said Mr. Cohen failed him as his lawyer because he should have known about campaign finance law. Mr. Cohen was sentenced to three years in prison on Wednesday, related to two separate cases — a reduced sentence that reflected the information he shared with federal prosecutors, including details that implicated Mr. Trump in criminal activity. Mr. Cohen had faced a much lengthier sentence for his crimes of tax evasion, bank fraud, campaign finance violations and lying … [Read more...] about Trump Says Cohen Failed Him as His Lawyer and Blames Him for Campaign Finance Violations

Home In-Depth Reporting Lawyers on balancing motherhood or choosing… On Well-Being By Jeena Cho November 2018 Photo of Jeena Cho courtesy of the JC Law Group Motherhood is more demanding than ever.

Through my job as director of content at Rocket Matter, I’ve learned a lot about this profession. One thing that has really stood out to me is how many lawyers are suffering. Our website recently ran a five-part series on depression, substance abuse and wellness in the legal industry. The statistics are staggering: Lawyers are 3.6 times as likely to be depressed as people in other jobs, while the landmark 2016 American Bar Association and Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation study found that 28 percent of licensed, employed lawyers suffer with depression. The study also showed that 19 percent have symptoms of anxiety and 21 percent are problem drinkers. Many organizations are trying to help fight this epidemic. For instance, we’re hosting our first Legal Wellness Retreat in the Berkshires of Western Massachusetts on July 18 to July 20. Also, the ABA provides a very comprehensive list of helpful resources for lawyers, judges and law students, along with links to lawyer assistance … [Read more...] about Lawyers weigh in: Why is there a depression epidemic in the profession?
