Lawyers with young children may not want full-time work, while law firms may need help but are gun-shy about hiring. Maine lawyer Nicole Bradick has found a way to bring these two groups together, with a business she calls Custom Counsel.
Founded in January, it matches lawyers available to do contract work with attorneys who need temporary help. Custom Counsel has 18 lawyers in Maine, and a Washington, D.C., branch recently opened.
The mother of two children under age 4, Bradick is also a litigation associate at Portland’s Murray, Plumb & Murray. She began telecommuting two days a week after having her first child in 2009 and now works there part time.
