Hello, world! Welcome to Mindfulness Law, a site dedicated to providing discussion, tips and techniques for mindfulness in the legal field. Through this site, I hope to provide a community for attorneys to share experiences, ideas and to create a more mindful, practical, and overall happier practice of law.
It might help to know a little about me. My name is Mona Tashroudian, and I am currently partner at Tashroudian Law Group, APC (“TLG”) in Woodland Hills, California. TLG was founded by myself and my partner, and brother, David Tashroudian. Having practiced law for about 6 years now, it has become truly evident that something critical is lacking in the legal field, and that thing is mindfulness. As a profession dealing with an extraordinary amount of stress and emotion, mindfulness is not just a “good idea” for the profession, but is an absolute must. Still actively practicing as an attorney, and running my own law firm/small business at the same time, practicing what I preach, as some say, is highly critical. Through this site, and my dedication to being more mindful in my own life and practice, I hope to introduce the concept of mindfulness to lawyers across the globe. My hopes are that, eventually, the profession can gain a reputation which includes, but is not limited to, compassion and sanity. The profession is tough enough as it is, why let your mind battle you as well?
