Mindfulness is the key to building a successful law practice, according to attorney Ed Bernstein. It’s a belief he stands by and wisdom he was happy to share with law students and graduates at a recent workshop.

On Oct. 23, Ed Bernstein & Associates sponsored “Mindful Lawyering” at the William S. Boyd School of Law. The innovative, interactive program, lead by Executive Coach Keith Miller, taught participants how to establish connections with clients, colleagues, and even opposing counsel through empathy and positive communication.

students on the art of “Mindful Lawyering.”
These tactics are what Bernstein attributes much of his success to, according to a press release. The release also said, “Ed knows that being in a great relationship with clients and staff and having an empowering ‘work culture’ leads to excellent client service, a natural referral source and financial success.”

One of the most recognizable lawyers in Nevada, Bernstein has more than 40 years of experience helping personal injury victims.

Keith Miller has worked with high-level professionals, including CEOs, managers and human resources directors, and has facilitated numerous individual, team and leadership training groups.
