When Michael R. Anspach attended Marquette University Law School, yoga, meditation and being active in a 12-step community helped him succeed. But once the 2018 graduate started practicing at Anspach Law, those techniques didn’t work.
This was because the demands of litigation made it impossible to quiet his mind, even on evenings and weekends, he says.
By January, Anspach, with the help of a therapist, started thinking about additional things he could do for self-care, and his plan now includes a Harley-Davidson motorcycle named Sabrina.
Anspach Law defends nursing home lawsuits and is owned by Anspach’s father, Robert Anspach. The firm has offices in Toledo, Ohio; Columbus, Ohio; and Charleston, West Virginia.
In this episode of Asked and Answered with the ABA Journal’s Stephanie Francis Ward, Anspach talks about his road to success after law school, his self-care tips and how he learned to quiet his mind.
