Lawyers Can Be A Star and A Mom on Their Own

It’s always bittersweet when I read articles like this one,  Work Family Divide Keeps Numbers of Women Low, Rachel Osterman (8/20/05) about women attorneys leaving firms because they find them incompatible with raising a family.  Without sounding too much like John Roberts, I’m all in favor of attorneys – male or female – who choose to forego their careers short term to stay home with children so long as they’re aware of middle of the road options for balancing law and family.  But I wonder how many women leave the law without knowing about other options – like solo practice – (or those described here) that might offer the best of both worlds.
