Martha SullivanLawyer - Sullivan Law Ptbo
Martha's Story :
The first is my life is crazy awesome.
Life can be hectic as I am a small business owner with three young children. Life is awesome for these same reasons though. I am fortunate enough to truly love what I do. Being able to create the law firm that I always wanted to be a part of in Peterborough (where I wanted to return to) is a great privilege. Practicing real estate, wills & estates and family law is rewarding both personally and professionally. I take the responsibility of my job very seriously and the trust that clients place in me; however, I have learned to never take myself seriously. My kids bring me joy, laughter and meaning. They also bring spilled juice, early mornings and late nights. Sometimes my spouse and I joke that we go to work for a break !
The second is that my fortune is my friends and family.
I deeply believe that my relationships are the greatest gift I will ever have. Working for wonderful clients together with talented colleagues, and living close to my extended families provides me with a lifestyle that I am grateful for. Being able to both give and receive support creates very productive and fun days.
It was a privilege to be nominated. This photo was captured during an in-between time. It was taken at our new offices in the midst of a huge renovation while my baby was at home waiting to be fed. Life is a great series of transitions, hopefully, towards making our dreams into reality. This pictures captures that meaning for me.
