On March 24, 2021, the Legal Resource Network Inc. will present a webinar commencing at 5:30 p.m. Eastern time. The presenter of that webinar, titled “The Addicted Lawyer: How We Got There & Where We Are Headed,” will be Brian Cuban. He will describe his own journey into and through addiction and its effects on his personal and professional lives.
Mr. Cuban, who has made presentations to a large number of groups of lawyers and other professionals, will explore why members of the legal profession may be particularly vulnerable to addiction and its impacts. He will also discuss possible solutions to that problem and means by which individual lawyers and the organizations in which they work can reduce the impact of that scourge and ameliorate its impacts. During his presentation, he looks back on his journey with honesty, compassion and even humor as he reflects on the lessons about himself and his career choice that he has retained from his experiences. He weaves into his talk practical advice on what law firms can do to reduce the stigma that typically accompanies revealed addiction and to empower a compassionate community that aids in the individual’s ongoing recovery.
Mr. Cuban is a Mental Health and Recovery Advocate & Best-Selling Author. He is a Dallas-based attorney, author, and addiction recovery advocate. He graduated from Penn State University and The University of Pittsburgh School of Law. Brian has been in long-term recovery from alcohol, cocaine and bulimia since April 2007.
