Sometimes “thinking like a lawyer” isn’t a good thing, especially when it comes to having a happy and healthy home life.
We are thrilled that Mark Perlmutter, a Texas trial lawyer turned counselor, stopped by for a series on law school lessons that are not advisable for a healthy home life. Mark helps individuals (many of whom are former lawyers) and couples to have more satisfying business and intimate relationships.
In this series, he explores habits picked up in law school that shouldn’t be brought home with you!
