More and more women are leaving the practice of law in frustration. Recent ABA numbers showed as much as a 50% attrition rate for women attorneys, at or before the 20 year mark! When women should be hitting their prime as attorneys, far too many are leaving the practice of law altogether!
More and more women are struggling; they are boxed in by glass ceilings, while also being pulled in multiple directions between inflexible work responsibilities within firms that cater to a male mind set, and childrearing and family responsibilities that also need their attention. It’s no wonder they hit a breaking point.
The simple solution is more women starting and growing their OWN successful law firms, creating their own firm culture, and defining the terms in which they will practice law. That’s why we at PILMMA decided to host our first ever Empowering Women At our 2019 Super Summit, and asked attorney Gloria Allred, and a number of other successful women firm owners to join us and to share their knowledge and insights. We want more and more women to feel empowered for firm ownership, and to equip them with the tools and strategies they need to grow their own successful law firms.
We also want to see women who have already started their own firms to experience more financial freedom and growth.
This phrase has become synonymous this year with the grit and determination women across our country are bringing to the table not only on the Hill, but in courtrooms, boardrooms, ball fields and battlefields.
It takes GRIT to start a law firm, and to grow it successfully, but it’s the same grit that has gotten you to where you are now. It’s the determination to set a goal and then make it happen!
For many women, there is reluctance to start a law firm on their own: It isn’t something they taught us in law school, was it?
But if you were able to pass the bar, and work for years growing someone else’s practice, why not put that same energy, compassion and determination to bear to grow something for yourself and your family? To build a firm and a culture that reflects YOUR values and gives you the freedom to call the shots yourself, and to NOT be penalized when you need to pick a child up from school or soccer practice, care for aging parents, etc.
I believe there is a reluctance for many women to grab the helm and captain their own law firm ship. They worry about the finances and whether they can grow the firm successfully and be able to generate the income they need each month to keep things afloat in the interim. The truth is, you CAN do it, and it is not as difficult as you might think!
If you have already started your own firm, we’d like to help you grow your firm and experience more profits and more freedom. We’d like to share strategies and tactics that will truly help you experience a more balanced life AND a more successful law firm.
