Schedule Control Isn't Just For Female Attorneys

We’ve received some very positive feedback from an article in The Tennessean last month about our company and our induction into the Nashville Chamber of Commerce’s Future 50 Hall of Fame (unfortunately there's no link to the special section in which the article ran). There’s just one point I’d like to clarify.

The article makes it seem as if a majority of our attorneys are moms and other female attorneys who left the profession due to life circumstances (and wanted to get back into the profession). While we are fortunate that many women choose to practice with us, in reality, the attorney breakdown at Counsel On Call is basically a 50/50, male/female split. So yes, we do have many working moms – I am one and it was a big reason why I started this company – but many of our attorneys practice law with us while pursuing other interests (whether it’s as a sports writer, a teacher, or a musician) while others have chosen more of a work-life balance for their careers (like wanting to spend more time with family or to work only 40 hours a week).

Those pursuits, and the many others we’re fortunate to help facilitate, certainly aren’t gender specific.
