InCloudCounsel Lawyer

Casey C

InCloudCounsel Lawyer

Flexibility for me is essential. I wanted to be more active in my kids’ lives and community, so I left a successful Big Law career and opened my own practice with more flexible hours. Working with InCloudCounsel lets me do things that are important to me, like volunteering at my daughter’s school, spending time with my extended family, and helping out at community organizations.
