"As the holidays come to a close and we begin a new year, many of us will take time to reflect on the events of the past 12 months and to create goals for the coming year. For a majority of newly-minted andyoung lawyers, goals take the shape of professional ambitions," Works writes in the article. "I would caution you, though, not to lose sight of who you were before you became a lawyer and to at least attempt to maintain some semblance of that person. It is all too easy to become entirely consumed with the practice of law, especially during the first few grueling years of practice."
