This week on the legal affairs podcast Lawyer2Lawyer, we look at the impact of the recession on lawyers and the legal profession.

In the first segment of the program, we discuss the recent rash of lawyer suicides and the problem of depression among lawyers. Joining us to discuss this is Skip Simpson, founder of The Law Offices of Skip Simpson in Frisco, Texas. Skip is a nationally recognized expert in suicide and a pioneer in the field of suicide litigation.

In the second segment, we look at what are likely to be the long-term impacts of the recession on lawyers and law firms. Sharing his perspective on this is Peter Zeughauser, founder of the Zeughauser Group in Newport Beach, Calif., and one of the nation’s premier law firm strategy consultants.
