Sometimes it helps to start by saying the quiet part out loud:
Too many seasoned attorneys worry about retaining their book of business at the expense of training the next generation of lawyers.
And in the end, the client is the one who suffers.
Some version of this problem has existed for as long as there have been apprenticeships or something like them.
And anyone who’s ever lost an employee they invested in knows there’s a weird sting to it.
Even when you genuinely want the best for that person.
But look at any lawyer of impact and one trait they are guaranteed to have in common are mentors who both guided them, and, when the time came, allowed them to carve a new trail.
Thankfully my guest this week is someone who had those kinds of mentors in her life.
Whitney Lay Greene is an experienced civil litigator, practicing in the fields of transportation/trucking law, ride-share litigation, premises liability, and products liability in both state and federal courts all over Georgia.
Whitney is active in multiple organizations including DRI, TIDA, and the ABA.
The past couple years have been a little busy for all of us, but after becoming a partner at Chartwell Law, starting The Mother Board podcast, AND having twins - all while adjusting to a pandemic - Whitney has embodied a calm wisdom & passion for leadership.
This is definitely an episode for the lawyers, but I think the jokes help carry the day for everyone.
Enjoy the Show!
