In this episode, I am excited to have on Nancy Giles to talk about her journey from big law to starting her own practice and balancing running a practice as a parent.

Nancy created Giles Law, PLLC to support, advise, and represent businesses facing legal issues and conflicts. Nancy considers herself a member of her firm's clients' teams, staying in close contact with them to keep their goals and strategies in focus. Equipped with 20 years of experience in commercial litigation, Nancy and her team use inventive and efficient solutions to create exceptional results.

Topics Covered

  • Starting out in "Big Law," looking back on the major differences between the different types of law practices, and what her transition looked like.
  • How she ended up being a happy litigator, happy mother, and happy business owner.
  • How her personal journey affected her work and both how she found herself co-parenting and what that looks like for her.
  • What advice she would give to other lawyers feeling stuck, uninspired, or worse.
