LCLMA solo stress connection support for lawyers

Monthly Meetings

Join one of two sections:

EACH 1ST MONDAY  |  2p – 3p

EACH LAST FRIDAY  |  2p – 3p

Free & Confidential Monthly Meetings for Massachusetts Lawyers

Join peers in solo and small law practice in a monthly discussion about the unique stress you experience related to practicing law while also managing a practice. These meetings are much more participatory and less didactic than a webinar — you’ll need a webcam to participate fully.

Meetings take place via Zoom. You’ll become a member of one of two sections when you join. Exceptions due to holidays, etc. are communicated to group members.

Common discussion topics include:

  • Difficult clients & opposing counsel
  • Finding a professional identity
  • Burnout
  • Money
  • Seeking fulfillment
  • Compassion
  • Isolation
  • Handling emotional reactions

Some notes to be aware of in advance:

  • This is a support and discussion group, and not a therapy group.
  • This is not a recovery/sobriety related group — i.e. is open to all, and not 12-step oriented. For recovery meetings, click here.
  • This is not a group for talking about legal case strategies. It’s for discussing thoughts, feelings, coping, adapting.
  • Participation will require both video and audio.  If joining from a smartphone, the phone needs to be positioned in a stable way.


Not sure if this group is for you? Email Dr. Jeff Fortgang ( with any questions.
