Work and Life: How Two Solo Lawyers Balance Busy Careers, Marriage, and Parenting

Solo lawyers may struggle with work-life balance, but sometimes an uplifting perspective from other solos in the trenches is just what they need to carry on. In this episode of New Solo, Adriana Linares hosts solo lawyers and married couple Renee and Phil Stackhouse. They discuss their individual careers and delve into how they manage their personal lives as a couple and as parents. They go on to discuss how they manage their practices from a business perspective, from office space to legal technology to financial matters. In their final segment, Renee and Phil talk about their work in military law, describing the types of matters they deal with and highlighting interesting cases.
