Jamie Richards Whitney of Richards Whitney, P.C. first started out working for Judge Sparks in Downtown Austin. Afterwards, she moved on to do litigation work for a big law firm and ten years into it - with three kids and an ill mother - she realized that big law was not the life for her. Upon this realization, she also found that while she did want to continue to practice law, she wanted to do it in a way that was true to herself. Richards Whitney has been practicing law in that way, a way that reflects her lifestyle and values, for a year now. Small businesses with specific things going wrong can benefit greatly by seeking the help of Jamie. She often helps with contract disputes, employment law disputes, and trade secrets.
Jamie is currently working with prior clients who have solved their initial “fan hitting” problems to plan for the future and help solve problems down the road. As a lawyer, she would advise new entrepreneurs to do take the following steps:
1. If Jamie woke up one morning without her business she would start a law firm. It would be a convenience to her because that is something that can be done from anywhere and it is a permanent ticket to making your own way.
2. Her biggest entrepreneurial mistake was buying too many things she did not yet need and struggling to transition from the big business way of making purchases.
3. Book recommendations form Jamie are "Playing Big" by Tara Mohr and "The Passage" by Justin Cronin. They are available for purchase through the links below.
5. Richards - Whitney, P.C.'s office is located in Cedar Park within T-Werx at 1320 Arrow Point, Ste 501
