It will cost lawyers $99 a week for 52 weeks to lose weight with the help of someone who has been there, done that—Mark Leventhal, a former lawyer who shed 50 pounds and started Leventhal Weight Loss.
Leventhal will work around lawyers’ busy schedules to meet and coach them at their convenience, the Washington Post reports. He’ll even meet his fat-cat clients at their favorite restaurants to help them order the right thing.
The $99 a week is a special offer. His usual price is $250 a week, the the ABA Journal reported in its story featuring Leventhal, called “Tipping the Scales of Justice.” The Washington Post headline was “Thinning Washington’s Herd of Lawyers.”
