On June 26 from 1-4:15pm, Matt Schmidt and Amanda Bynum will be teaching "Stress Management & Wellness: a Toolkit for Lawyers" for the State Bar of Arizona. It is worth 3 hours of CLE, including 3 ethics credits. The program will focus on practical strategies and skills to incorporate into a stressful legal career and to improve balance in an overwhelming modern day society. 

After writing a  technology column for the Pima County Bar Association's monthly publication "The Writ" for years, Matt has started a new column, "Mind your Mind," which focuses on stress management and mindfulness. Several times a year, Matt also gives talks at the law school to help law students prepare for the career and life they are heading into. In fact, Matt has been a guest speaker a few times Amanda's career development class.

Amanda Bynum is the Director of Externships & Bar Success at the University of Arizona James E. Rogers College of Law Career Development Office. Having experienced the stressful world of criminal law as a criminal defense attorney in both the private and public sectors, Amanda now focuses her time helping law students and people in general on career development and self-care. 


About the Author

Ted A. Schmidt

Ted's early career as a trial attorney began on the other side of the fence, in the offices of a major insurance defense firm. It was there that Ted acquired the experience, the skills and the special insight into defense strategy that have served him so well in the field of personal injury law. Notable among his successful verdicts was the landmark Sparks vs. Republic National Life Insurance Company case, a $4.5 million award to Ted's client. To this day, it is the defining case for insurance bad faith, and yet it is only one of several other multi-million dollar jury judgments won by Ted during his career. He is certified by the State Bar of Arizona as a specialist in "wrongful death and bodily injury litigation".
