Jamie Szal is a state and local tax litigator and lawyer mom to a three year old daughter. You may recognize her from her consistent presence on LinkedIn and Above the Law. One issue she speaks and writes passionately about is her experience as a lawyer mom who is the primary breadwinner in her family.
In this episode, Jamie discusses how her love of the law and her career goals shaped her marriage, and later on, her family. With clear communication and mutual respect, Jamie and her husband made their decision for him to stay home with their daughter, while she took on the primary breadwinning role.
Jamie talks about what the experience has been like and how she seeks to normalize it. Deciding to be a stay at home parent is not a choice only for women to make.
