I’m only one year into this balancing act, but it’s no joke.
At the time I became pregnant with my daughter, I was working as a divorce lawyer for a mid-size law firm in Essex County. My day-to-day job is demanding, without the complications of morning sickness, fatigue, and swollen feet. I spend a lot of time in courtrooms, advocating for clients during the most stressful times of their lives. Whether I am handling an uncontested “simple” divorce or a complicated child support and custody matter, people rely on me. I am a counselor, a therapist, a friend, a confidant, and most importantly- the person my clients trust to handle their personal lives with utmost care.
