Why do you do what you do? What motivates and inspires you?
As a full-service family law firm, we deal with everything from estate planning to adoptions, from divorce to assisted reproductive technology, from legal counsel to settlement agreements and litigation, from singular issues to global family crisis resolution. Our job—crafting strategic wins, making clients happy and blazing new trails that have a positive impact on peoples’ lives—is all either of us ever wanted to do. Both of us laid out our career goals and set our minds to achieving them. We thrive on breaking barriers— when we encounter something that’s never been done before, we are driven to figure it out and make a difference. We’re proud of our complementary styles and approach to each case; they enable us to serve each client in the most comprehensive manner.
What advice would you offer for women just starting out?
Create a network, connect with other women. Don’t be afraid to discuss any issues you’ve faced as an attorney and find yourself a mentor, if you can. We both value our profession and love mentoring the next generation of attorneys, offering advice and guidance in the hopes of inspiring them to feel as passionate about their work as we do.
What are your top priorities?
We are extremely client focused. We want the best possible outcomes for our clients and we’ll move mountains to get them. We’re uniquely positioned to work with LGBTQ clients, high net worth divorces and non-traditional family structures. We stand by our motto, “Family Law for a Changing World.”
