A woman’s work is never done. According to the 2018 Mother’s Day Index, mom’s overall “annual wage” increased 1.9% to $68,875, but they spend 148 hours each week performing tasks around the house and taking care of the kids. So this Mother’s Day, Special Counsel celebrates the amazing women that are full time attorneys and full-time mothers, and highlight the work they do outside of the office.
In honor of Mother’s Day, we asked six women to speak candidly about life as a mom, and how they balance their professional and personal responsibilities.

Happy Mother’s Day from Special Counsel!
