Happy Mother's Day to All of the Hardworking Moms
Mother's Day is coming up on May 14th. For attorney moms, it can be especially challenging juggling both parenthood and lawyering. But, remember that you can use your stealth lawyering skills at home too. For example, have you ever negotiated with a four year-old that he will get a new Hot Wheel in exchange for a clean room? Or have you ever crossed out unnecessary language from a waiver of liability form at a kids bounce house party? In honor of those hard-working moms, this article is for you. Happy Mother's Day!
