“Attorney Charissa Potts understands how it feels to be a working mom, especially because she is one herself. That is why she decided recently to launch a progressive employee Infant-At-Work policy for her law firm.
Freedom Law, which is based in Eastpointe, now has an Infant-At-Work policy that serves to support its part- and full-time employees as they become parents. The female-owned law firm seeks to provide a positive work environment for its employees, said Charissa Potts, founder and Principal Attorney for Freedom Law.
Potts said she believes that when a parent can stay with an infant the firm, the employee, infant, Freedom Law’s clients and all of society ultimately benefits.
“As a mom myself, I understand the connection a parent has with their child, especially in those all-important early months,” Potts said. ‘My aim is to retain talent and provide clients with the highest level of personalized service. We serve the whole person, and that means supporting parents in their new role.’”
