Jan 10, 2017

Why did you become a lawyer? Were you drawn to the intellectual challenge? Was it the interest in having an impact? Or was it because you weren't sure what else to do with your life? Every lawyer is drawn to the law for a different reason but often law school, the loans and the practice of law can leave even the most passionate young lawyer feeling a little #overit! On today's show, Danielle discusses her journey as a young lawyer from her work in construction litigation to being a founder of legal services business and the owner of Hashtag Legal, a law firm focusing on social media law with an emphasis on legal issues related to bloggers and influencer marketing. Best of all, she discusses how she was finally able to fall in love with her practice and proudly call herself a lawyer. 


What you’ll learn:

  • How Danielle found her business partner on Twitter
  • What is an “influencer” and how Danielle meets their legal needs
  • How and why Danielle founded two businesses
  • Hashtag Legal’s competitive advantage and how they make their money
  • Danielle’s practical advice for young lawyers who want to get into social media law


Danielle’s Happy Advice:

Try to pinpoint what you do and don't like about your life and see what small incremental steps you can take to improve those areas. Knowing what brings us joy can often help us find it in other places.
