Greene Espel is uniquely committed to promoting the mental and physical well-being of our attorneys and staff—which makes us better lawyers, partners, and members of the community.
Greene Espel is an original signatory of and participant in the ABA's Well-Being Pledge, launched in 2018 to improve the substance use and mental health landscape of the legal profession, with an emphasis on helping legal employers support healthy work environments.
The values embodied in the ABA Well-Being Pledge share much in common with Greene Espel’s core values as exemplified by our flexible work schedules, remote work policies, reasonable hours expectations, healthy food and beverage options, and open firm discussions about mental health issues to “break the silence” and eliminate the stigma around mental health issues. Since pledging, each of our operating committees has focused on further strengthening our efforts to promote the mental and physical well-being of our attorneys and employees.
Our attorneys are also leaders in this field, invited by clients to speak on topics including Finding Happiness in your Work, Managing Work Anxiety and Stress, Finding Work Life Balance When Working From Home, The Benefits of Physical Activity on Health and Career, and How to Make Email Less Stressful.
We believe that our commitment to mental health makes us better lawyers and better partners. Greene Espel team members come to each case with energy and enthusiasm because we love our work, and our firm structure ensures that we don’t face the pressures of arbitrary billing requirements, origination, or internal competition.
