In today’s episode of the Wealthy Woman Lawyer® podcast, I sit down with Vanessa Vasquez de Lara, Esq., the founder and owner of the Vasquez de Lara Law Group. Vanessa has dedicated her life to helping families navigate the intricacies of the law by ensuring their rights are honored and upheld in family court.

Vanessa graduated cum laude from the University of Miami School of Law in 2002. Shortly after starting her own law practice in 2012, she was named to the Super Lawyers’ Rising Stars. She has been recognized as one of the elite family law attorneys in Miami and has been named to the  “Super Lawyers List” every year since 2016.

Vanessa currently serves as the President of the Coral Gables Bar Association and on the Board of the Miami Dade County Bar Association. She has been featured multiple times on Univision’s Despierta America, the No. 1 national morning show on Spanish language television that has been running for more than two decades.

Listen in as Vanessa and I discuss:

  • Her journey as the first attorney in her family to owning her own law firm business and scaling it to a team of 25 and multiple 7 figures
  • What led her to start her own family law firm
  • The lesson she learned from her job as the only associate of another solo attorney
  • Why she chose to take a break from practicing law before starting her own firm (and the unique business she started instead)
  • The mindset strategy she used to overcome fear of hiring other lawyers
  • The superpower that helped her get out of the day-to-day details of her law firm
  • What she looks for when hiring staff and attorneys
  • Why she prioritizes her law firm’s culture (and how she fosters it)
  • Why she decided to hire her husband as her COO
  • And much more!
