Great Listen for Attorneys

I have to echo some of the other 5 star reviews in how great this podcast is! I was also told about it in a Facebook group for young professionals in the legal field and it’s been so helpful and encouraging to hear from other female attorneys, especially from all different places in their careers, about the issues we face and encounter every day. In any office, it can be hard to talk about some of these topics so it’s great to get to listen and feel like I’m not alone on these things. Excellent job ladies! I appreciate you all and you’re hard work on this podcast!

For Attorneys & Professionals Alike

I heard of this podcast through a group Facebook & had to check it out. I was not disappointed. As a young female attorney, I struggle with finding mentor ship as I am the only female attorney in an all male office of 13 lawyers. These ladies discuss topics I face in every day practice and how to combat the struggles of this field. I would highly suggest to any female attorney or professional. I also have recommended this podcast to my male colleagues as well because its content is helpful for all litigators.

Excellent even for A “Little Gentleman”

I am a male attorney, and find this extremely insightful. I am not the target audience, but still gain knowledge listening. By the way, I have never been called “ Little Man” or “Little Gentleman”.
