27 Nov The State of Women-Owned Businesses in 2018
In this article, we’ll cover the State of Women-Owned Businesses in 2018.
As an all-female owned law firm, we take a “firm” stance on supporting other female founders, entrepreneurs, and small business owners. As entrepreneurs we solve problems, we transform the way people do things, we create jobs, spur economic growth and drive prosperity. Yet, based on the 2018 American Express State of Women-Owned Business Report, there is a significant gap between the number of women who start businesses and those who commit to growing them. However, there has been overall, unprecedented growth in the number of women-owned businesses across the country and we wanted to share some fun and pretty awesome national facts for 2018 that should give you a pep in your step:
We hope these stats inspire you and encourage you to start up and/or support women-owned businesses. For more inspiring facts and 2018 statistics head on over to The Dames.

At BAM, we have developed a team approach that utilizes our attorneys’ varying areas of expertise and tailors their diverse skills and styles for maximum effectiveness. This allows our clients to enjoy highly individualized attention at reasonable rates.
Our team approach allows for many cases to have the involvement of two or more attorneys and also by other legal experts. For the clients, that means that their cases will be reviewed by attorneys with a variety of perspectives, styles and legal expertise, who can review elements of constitutional, civil, family, criminal, and corporate law to determine the best approach. At the same time, the lead attorney oversees the entire process and develops a one-on-one relationship with the client.
Some of our attorneys are more familiar with certain judges and/or certain jurisdictions, and the team process allows them to weigh in with those valuable insights.
The team approach also has financial benefits for the client, allowing paralegals to create first drafts at lower rates, thereby minimizing costs. The client is charged a “blended rate” reflecting the average of attorney and paralegal time, to reflect the incorporation of the much lower paralegal rate for delegable tasks.
This approach also means that if the client’s lead attorney is in court or away for some other reason, there is always someone available who is familiar with their case should an urgent need arise.
