Ditching the traditional legal model to build a better law firm with Leena Yousefi


Welcome to season 2 of The Happy Lawyer Podcast!

On this episode I chat with Leena Yousefi founder of Y Law. We do a deep dive into how the traditional legal practice model led to burnout, mental and physical health issues. We discussed how this gave her the courage to start her own firm and how that firm has now boomed. We cover the following:

· Why law firms are stuck in the past

· How burnout has become the norm in the profession and why that must end

· The impacts of stress and burnout on her physical and mental heath

· Why she started her own practice and how it took off

· Why being a mom makes you a better lawyer not a liability

· Transition to a 4 day work week and its success
