Many of us lawyers didn't have it all figured out from the start. It takes time to find your way in your legal profession. This podcast sheds light on some of the challenges that lawyers face in the earliest part of building their careers. Each week, our host, Anjie Vichayanonda, sits down with members of the legal profession, to chat about the paths they took to get where they are now, including the times they stumbled, the times they fell, and the times they needed a little help. To encourage candor, the attorney guests remain nameless, but their stories are laid bare for your consideration. From time to time, Anjie invites prospective and current law students to join the show as a guest host so that they can practice their interviewing skills and connect with lawyers.

This podcast is produced by Leg Up Legal, which provides a mentoring mobile app and curriculum to connect prospective law students to attorney mentors and teaches them how to build their first professional relationships. For more information about Leg Up Legal, please visit:

In today’s episode, I’ll be chatting with an attorney in private practice at a boutique law firm. She obtained a master’s degree while pursuing her law degree. And she’s held practically every legal job in the book to working at the North Carolina Department of Justice, transitioning to municipal law practice, moving in-house to serve a business, starting her own firm, and finally joining a boutique firm. We’ll also discuss how she navigated becoming a new mother during her first year of law school.
