Inspired by watching courtroom dramas with her grandmother, Miriam Airington-Fisher discusses her background and lifelong passion for law. From focusing on public defense and criminal law to running her firm and becoming an author and speaker, Miriam has a unique perspective on the legal practice because “moms a lawyer.”

In this podcast episode, Miriam Airington-Fisher shares her journey of intentionally building a family-friendly law firm for herself and her team. Recognizing the significance of work-life balance, especially as a working parent, she consciously created a work environment that allowed her to be there for her child. This realization occurred when her oldest child started kindergarten, prompting her desire to leave the office at three o'clock.

Through these resources, she gradually acquired the knowledge and skills to create a business and transform her law practice into a successful venture. Consequently, her firm experienced growth and received inquiries from other women attorneys interested in her family-friendly work environment. This informal mentoring eventually evolved into a formal consulting side hustle and led to the publication of her book, "Mom's a Lawyer." The host's experience highlights the importance of continuously seeking knowledge and learning from various resources to develop and expand a law practice.
