    EP613 - "If the Heels Fit, Wear Them Well: Loving Your Career at Every Stage” Part Two

    Even though you are a successful female attorney, do you ever feel like this career is not for you? You’re not alone. Women attorneys are twice as likely to make an early exit from their practices as men and they continue to disappear even after making partner. There are a lot of reasons, but one might be the fact that male equity partners make 27% more than female equity partners. Women of color represent nearly 20% of all first- and second-year associates who left their firms in 2018. What can you do to hold on to your career and keep other women in the field with you? We’ve got a few suggestions and some facts to arm and inspire you when you feel like moving on.

    EP611 - Compassion Fatigue

    Yes, you are a counselor, but does that mean you have to be a therapist too? Our clients may expect more compassion from us because we are women, but how do we protect our delicate sense of compassion when our jobs bombard us with pain and injustice? Can we compartmentalize and have compassion too? It’s a tough topic…..grab some grace and tune in.

Fantastic podcast

I found them from the Jury is Out podcast and I can’t recommend them enough. It’s not just for women but also great for male trial attorneys as well who want insight into our experience with great trial tips on bettering your trial skills.

I love this podcast so much. They’re inspiring and they speak to me and my own experiences in the courtroom.

Thank you for doing this podcast!!!

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.
