We have exciting news! Co-founding Flat Fee Trademark attorney Serena Minott has been featured by the ABA Perspectives Magazine, a publication of the American Bar Association.
The article features women attorneys who made a major career transition while staying within the practice of law.
As a former large firm alumni in Washington D.C., Attorney Minott considered trading in her legal hat to enter the world of entrepreneurship.
Fortunately, she realized the issue was not practicing law but rather the nature of her work in a large firm. Serena found a happy medium by establishing her own law firm, Minott Gore, P.A., which she founded with Attorney Keesonga Gore, another large firm alum, in July 2007.
Attorneys Minott and Gore set out to build a new kind of law practice, one focused on high quality, relationship-based representation for small business owners and entrepreneurs.
Serena Minott, a formerly disillusioned big-firm associate, also suggests forging your own path. “I was really tempted to walk away from the law entirely, but I gave it another go because I believed I could build a different kind of practice actually enjoying what I do,” explains the cofounder of Minott Gore, P.A., a Miami-based trademark and corporate firm launched in July 2007. “When you’re an associate, the pace is fast. You turn in your work and move on to something else. Today we represent small-business owners in a very relationship-based practice. Every day I’m excited to go to work because I love talking to and working with clients.
