Siobhán Fitzpatrick (a.k.a. The Law Mother) is a mom of four girls, lawyer, and blogger. With no legalese and a lot of humor, she answers a broad range of legal, career, and parenting questions.
After years of conversations with other parents that started with “You’re a lawyer, right? I’ve got a question for you,” Siobhán started writing her blog Lex Mater (The Law Mother) to answer some of those questions, including what are those pesky liability waivers/releases you have to sign for every kid activity, how do you pick guardians for your kids, and her personal favorite, whose responsible when your kid’s favorite glitter shoes are stolen at an indoor trampoline park.
Siobhán practices in the Dallas area and specializes in business law and estate planning for families with young children.
Siobhán and her husband Chris, who is also an attorney, are the parents of four girls, Caitríona (14), Cara (12), Kelsey (9), and Claire (6). When she’s not mothering, lawyering, or blogging, Siobhán is a runner with far more passion than speed.
* Don’t know how to pronounce Siobhán? Don’t worry. It’s one of those impossible Irish names no one outside of Ireland can pronounce or spell. It’s pronounced “shiv + awn.”
