On this week’s Wealthy Woman Lawyer® Podcast, we speak with Iffy Ibekwe, an Estate Planning Attorney and Founder of Ibekwe Law. Ibekwe Law is dedicated to giving women and families that don’t fall under the “traditional” wealth umbrella a chance at building wealth and setting their families up for success. She also runs the We Read Her book club, a book club committed to reading works written by women of color. A graduate of the University of Texas at Austin, Iffy’s journey winded from art to pre-med to law, and now she’s dedicated to social justice and helping women establish their own legacies. She has been featured on Austin’s NPR affiliate and as an Austin Monthly Magazine’s Top Attorney.

We chat with Iffy about the ways women can empower themselves and build agency over financial decisions, as well as: 

  • Recontextualizing the “doom and gloom” of estate planning
  • The values of establishing intergenerational wealth 
  • Building cultural competency to broaden your audience
  • Giving a spotlight to people of color and women in financial and written spaces
  • Juggling maternity leave and a family while building a successful business
  • And more!
