Change – March 2009
This month my daughter will be six months old, I can hardly believe it! Motherhood is a little harder – but a whole lot more wonderful – than I imagined. I salute all those women who are working full time in “traditional” jobs. Up until now, I have been able to be with my daughter almost all the time, since I have the flexibility to work at home and bring her to the office whenever I want.
But now that my daughter is more interactive and demands a little more attention, I realize that it will not be possible for me to run two businesses and be with her as much as I would like. I was making copies of a settlement package and putting everything together to drop in Fed Ex the other day, with my daughter fussing for my attention. It was then I realized that I need to be doing what is really important to me, and that I need to simplify the work aspect of my life.
With all of this in mind, I have sold my ownership interest in Meridian Title, LLC, to my longtime friend and partner, Raymond R. Sidney-Smith. I will continue to provide attorney services to Meridian Title, LLC as needed, conduct settlements, and marketing for the company. These are all the things I enjoy about the settlement business and I’m excited to work in that capacity. All operational and administrative aspects of Meridian Title, LLC will be handled by its new sole owner, Raymond R. Sidney-Smith.
My law practice will continue in the same location and the same manner of practice as always. In the coming months I hope to conduct more marketing of the law firm by way of informal talks, among other things. Since my name is no longer Jennifer E. Holt, you can expect to see a change of my law firm name as well.
