Hi! I’m Andrea. I am so happy you’re here! I’m married, have four children (12, 10, 7 & 4), three chickens, two cats and a rowdy dog. I’m also a work-from-home solo attorney.
I am passionate about teaching moms they can have a business and still be home with their children. The internet has done amazing things for our ability to work on our own terms! There are so many options available to us now. You no longer have to choose between staying home with your kids full time or working full time. Sometimes you have to be creative to get there, and it probably won’t be perfect, but you can do it!
My goal for this site is to help moms run their businesses legally and their homes smoothly, so they can stress less and spend more time doing the things that are important to them.
I understand the law can be overwhelming and difficult to understand. I want to help you make sense of it all, so you can make the best decisions for your business. When starting out, most moms don’t have a lot of money to invest in their business and hiring an attorney is the last thing they want to spend money on. But, it’s still important to legally protect yourself, even in the beginning.
I also understand that our homes and family lives can be overwhelming. There is always so. much. to. do. This is still something I struggle with daily. I do think the key is be prepared and having good plans in place. Following the plan is a different story, but you have to start somewhere!
So, why should you listen to me? I started my practice right out of law school when we had a 1 year old. My mom always worked, so I never even considered wanting to stay home with my kids. But, once my daughter was born, I couldn’t imagine going to work at a firm for 80 hours a week (something new lawyers are infamously known for). I knew I wanted to do something different. There wasn’t a clear path laid out for me, but I’m stubborn, so I was sure I could make it work. Since then, we’ve added three more children to the mix. I definitely don’t have it all figured out, but I have learned some helpful tips along the way.
Want to know more about me? I love to read, especially non-fiction. My friends and husband tease me for being a self-help junkie. I also love making lists and planning-for everything! I like personality frameworks and am constantly trying to learn more about myself. I like taking long walks and spending time with my family.
Time for the disclaimer-I am a lawyer after all. Everything on this site is intended as general information only and shall NOT be considered legal advice. Nothing on this site nor any communication with me shall create an attorney-client relationship.
I would love to hear from you!
