Apr 1, 2019

In this episode, I am excited to have on Stephanie Holland to talk about career, home, and personal changes to revolutionize what the modern working lawyer parent looks like.

Stephanie is a labor and employment attorney with Ernest Law Group in Virginia Beach. She practiced law in Washington, DC for 11 years, then left a stable, well-paying job last summer to build a practice from scratch in Virginia, and find a path with a balance between work and home life.

Topics Covered

  • Changing legal markets from a large city to a much smaller market.
  • Going from a salaried position at a mid-sized firm to an "eat what you kill" arrangement, the business model that comes with that arrangement, and what that looks like in terms of balancing work, social, and parenting life.
  • Developing boundaries with work after not having any for years (inspired by having a little one), and realizing you don't want to be like your mentors.
