Dixon Life Coaching’s programs focus on high achievers with ADHD, with one of our specialty areas being lawyers with ADHD, and there’s a very good reason for that... because there are a high number of people with ADHD who work in the legal field (click here to read my thoughts on why that is).
According to the landmark ABA study published in 2016, there are almost three times more attorneys with ADHD than adults with ADHD in the general population (you can read our article about the study here). Given this data, it’s safe to assume that there are a number of lawyers with ADHD working in both small and large law firms around the country.
It’s true that the legal field as a whole is taking steps to de-stigmatize ADHD and other neuro-diversities in the industry. This is evidenced by the 2016 ABA study, as well as the development of roles such as Director of Wellness and Director of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion in law firms. But are these initiatives enough when ADHD is so prevalent in law? Frankly, I don’t think so and believe we can do more.
Stinson LLP is taking their commitment to inclusion one step further by partnering with Dixon Life Coaching to “situate neurodivergence into the firm’s broader initiatives for attorney well-being.”
What does this mean exactly? It means that Stinson LLP is leading the charge to “do more” for ADHD and other Executive Functioning challenges in legal settings.
Check out a recent interview Krista Larson, Director of Well-Being at Stinson and I did with Minnesota Lawyer about the partnership between Dixon Life Coaching and Stinson.
