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:

Today's guest had two major surprises while attending Columbia Law School. Specifically, she found out that she was pregnant with twins in her 2L year. Thankfully, she had a strong support system of family and friends that helped her finish law school on time and land a job in BigLaw in litigation. She managed to juggle the demands of work and single parenting for eight years in BigLaw before transitioning to a role in the investigations department of the Securities and Exchange Commission. Eventually, she left the SEC to become an accredited Financial Counselor to help lawyers and others learn how to pay down their debt and make wise financial decisions that will enable them to live the lifestyle that they want. I was blown away by her grit and honesty and I'm sure you will be, too.
