After law school, choosing a legal specialization may feel like it’s putting you on a linear career path that you can follow all the way to retirement. You set up a practice, begin hiring a team, and it feels like you’re on your way to success. Then life happens, and your plans get thrown out the window.

In this episode of Wealthy Woman Lawyer®, trademark attorney and business growth consultant Joey Vitale joins Davina to discuss the panic attacks that changed his life and career.
