Texas Lawbook: Winston & Strawn Partner Explores Myth of Work-Life Balance

Winston & Strawn Dallas trial partner LeElle Slifer shares her experiences identifying and navigating personal and professional tasks in The Texas Lawbook article “The Myth of Work-Life Balance,” providing an alternative perspective for working mothers to consider.

“Of course, we must learn to prioritize and delegate life tasks, an area where working moms often feel unnecessary pangs of guilt,” Ms. Slifer writes. “I cannot make every bake sale at school, and I know I will never have the bandwidth to be room mom. But this is no different from the fact that I cannot say yes to serving on every firm committee, nor can I review every deposition in a case. I am comfortable delegating these tasks at the office, and so I must be able to do so at home too.’”
