Rincker Law, PLLC is 7 years old! With each anniversary of my law practice, I like to reflect on the previous year. Ruth has been my right hand girl for a few years now but Ravi Cattry joined the team a year ago. It’s been great having these two ladies a part of the firm’s growth over the years.
In this last year, I was selected as Metro New York Rising Star from Super Lawyers for the second year in a row (two peat!) and the Client’s Choice Award from Avvo. I wrote my second book titled “Onward and Upward: Guide for Getting Through New York Divorce and Family Law Issues” (available on Amazon, Kindle and iBooks). In the past year, I also opened up an Illinois office in Champaign, Illinois.
Additionally, I enjoyed (1) speaking to the National Business Institute (“NBI”) on wine and vineyard law, (2) moderating webinars for the American Bar Association (“ABA”) General Practice, Solo & Small Firm Division’s Agriculture Law Committee on intellectual property and insurance, and (3) giving presentations to Lawline on New York animal welfare law, farm leases, managing the agri-business client, and building a law practice. One of the highlights for me was giving the Keynote address at the University of Tennessee College of Law’s Agriculture Law & Policy Symposium last fall.
I’m one lucky lady. When the hard days come (and there have been many), I try to reflect on how lucky I am to have this law practice and feel incredibly thankful to everyone who has supported me along the way. I am also thankful for the two ladies standing next to me who help me each day build this business to better serve families and the food/agriculture industry. I’m also very thankful that 7 years ago, I had the courage to take that leap into the great unknown into the world of entrepreneurship.
