Fathers in LAW


WHY Fathers in LAW?

WHY Fathers in LAW?

The Double Whammy

The problem can be put very simply. Most men don’t have a life. What we call our life is mostly just a big act, a mask that we clamp onto our faces each morning and don’t take off until we fall asleep at night. Most men are flat out every day living a lie. We’ve all grown so used to this, we don’t even notice it any more.

Lawyers are more likely than the general population to experience depression and anxiety.

Too Dramatic?

Maybe, though sometimes we need a jolt, a provocation to reflect on our lives. And perhaps no more so than we men, who typically are reluctant to share our everyday feelings, our everyday struggles… even our joy.

The Passion

As a male, a lawyer and a father of four children, Bill is passionate about bringing Fathers in LAW together, having conversations, sharing our stories, so we can:

  • understand we are all in similar boats. rowing as best we can
  • generate possibilities for us and others, to allow us to grow ourselves and our relationships, whether at home (with our partner and children) or at work (with our teams and clients)
  • have fun!
