Integrative Law: A Holistic Legal System

Integrative Law: A Holistic Legal System

Lawyers often help their clients deal with complicated & stressful issues. Creating a healthy work-life balance in any profession, including the legal profession, is essential to one’s mental and physical health. At Halpern Law Group we believe that when we as lawyers create balance for ourselves, we perform better at work, our employees are happier, and we are more beneficial to our clients and our community as a whole.

At HLG we strive to cultivate an integrative law environment. Cutting Edge Law defines integrative law, or holistic law, is an emerging worldwide movement to create a legal system that grants dignity and voice to everyone that interacts with the legal system. We are committed to the same values of integrative law as cited by J. Kim Wright such as nonviolent communication, empathy, compassion, integrity, and transparency.

One specific example of how HLG attempts to exemplify this is based on our belief that the best possible outcome for our clients’ disability case is for them to be able to return to wellness, so that they can begin working again. Another important part of our integrative mission is making sure their case is handled with the attention and compassion they deserve, in accordance with their unique individual circumstances. No one chooses to be disabled, and everyone deserves to be treated with compassion and understanding, regardless of his or her circumstances.
