Today we’d like to introduce you to Lynne Fleming.
Hi Lynne, we’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
When I was 30 years old, I was a married mother of 3 small children (6, 7, and 8 years old) when my husband of 10 years was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer. I returned to college to complete my undergraduate studies and applied to law school in order to make a future for my children and myself. I lost my husband 5 years later and subsequently graduated law school with honors and went on to become licensed to practice law in 4 states.
I have been an assistant prosecutor in Camden County, NJ, where I tried 55 felony cases in 3 1/2 years; I have been an associate litigation attorney in NJ and Ohio. And here in GA, I am the owner and principal attorney at Fleming Law, PC, a criminal defense law firm since 2012.
I enjoy my law practice on every level. I love mentoring young new attorneys, I enjoy helping clients and their families at the most difficult times of their lives, and I especially thrive on the interaction amongst lawyers, judges, witnesses, and juries during trials.
Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall, and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Life is very challenging, but I firmly believe that struggles and adversities bring out the best in us. I am grateful for the struggles and the failures in life, as they have contributed to who I am today. A mentor once told me you learn much more from losing a case than from winning one. I agree!
