"Law in the Fourth Sector" on Filevine's Podcast
Updated: Apr 14
Can you really have it all? Can you have a profitable job and live true to your values by making the world a better place? These are some of the questions we address with Filevine. As an attorney for this sector, I believe the answer is yes, and I've built a legal practice on the idea.
