YLaw was the one regulation agency from BC to make this nationwide checklist, and the one female-lead regulation agency within the nation to obtain this award.
To obtain this award throughout a pandemic and whereas elevating an toddler makes it that rather more particular for me.
This award is the product of years of sleepless nights and relentless days spent on believing in a single dream: that I can change the best way regulation companies are run. I can carry well being and happiness to our regulation agency tradition. I can deal with our purchasers like they’re my household. I can carry well being to a notoriously unhealthy occupation. And I don’t have to be ashamed of it.
331% Development in 3 Years
My dream got here by this yr once I acquired an electronic mail from the extremely prestigious Globe and Mail, notifying me that YLaw has received this rating. I used to be additionally invited to an interview and photoshoot. After the preliminary shock, I discovered the braveness to answer and naturally settle for the invitation.
To my shock, The Globe and Mail had picked my firm and a handful of others from the 400 checklist to profile. This was simply an icing on an already scrumptious cake that I didn’t count on to obtain.
When the article got here out and I noticed my photos and write up, the final 10 years of my life flashed earlier than my eyes. My palms began shaking and I chocked up crying.
I proudly shared the article with the agency, household and associates, however earlier than the rest, I knew and nonetheless know:
I’d be completely nothing with out the love and help of this unimaginable group of individuals I work with, my household who has stood by me by thick and skinny, and my child who has made me hold sane throughout this pandemic.
Thanks, thanks, thanks all our purchasers, friends and followers for serving to us develop. We couldn’t do it with out you.
