Gray Robinson is a third generation trial lawyer who was born and raised with lawyers. He has law in his blood. Even with that pedigree, after 27 years of practicing law Gray hit a wall and was overwhelmed by stress and anxiety. He quit practicing law in 2004 because he could not find any meaningful support and could not deal with the stress.
For the last 16 years Gray has been studying and researching what happened to him and his career and how to heal. He talked to therapists, experts, gurus, and went to every seminar he could find. What Gray noticed was there weren’t any programs for lawyers who were struggling with stress and anxiety like he did. Using the wisdom and counseling Gray had learned in his search he decided to climb back in the saddle and took the Oregon State Bar Exam. He passed!
Gray has since developed an effective program Lawyer Lifeline to help attorneys and judges (and other professionals) understand why they get stressed and how to manage it. Not only manage it, but thrive with it. Gray wants lawyers to enjoy their life, their practice, their families.
“You don’t have to be a strong silent suffering nervous wreck. I want you to remember why you became a lawyer in the first place, to have fun and help people.”
