Head of product. Hardworking mom of two and access to justice champion. Teddy Pendergrass fan. Nextlaw Labs’ multidimensional Maya Markovich was featured this week on the first More Than Esquires Network Insider edition of 2019. MTEN is an organization dedicated to inspiring attorneys and legal professionals to pursue their personal and professional passions beyond the practice of law.
Maya sat down with MTEN to share her journey into legal tech and innovation, the challenges she faced as a professional and a parent, and advice on making a successful transition from practice to the innovation space.
Some of our favorites from the spotlight feature:
“The field of legal innovation wasn’t something I’d ever considered – because it didn’t exist. Bringing together all the threads of my past experience – psychology, change management, tech, marketing and law — at Nextlaw Labs is a huge opportunity to be part of creating meaningful and substantive change in the legal industry.”
Three words to describe her role: “Groundbreaking. Imperative. Fascinating.”
“Doing things for the first time is challenging, but leads to professional growth, emotional intelligence, and can be kind of addictive.”
