About & Contact
Jamie Jackson Spannhake is a lawyer, writer, mediator, speaker, and certified health coach. Her work has appeared in print and online, including at Attorney at Work and eHow.com, and in Law Practice magazine, and webzines Law Practice Today, The Complete Lawyer, and Electronically In Touch. She has also published in academic journals The Brooklyn Journal of International Law and The Cumberland Law Review. She regularly writes and speaks on issues important to entrepreneurs, employees, and business owners, including lawyers, who have too many obligations and not enough time.
She graduated magna cum laude from Brooklyn Law School and received her certification as a health coach from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in New York City. She practices law as a partner at Berlandi Nussbaum & Reitzas LLP, as the only female partner in the firm, serving clients in Connecticut and New York in the areas of commercial litigation, estate planning, real estate, and business transactions. Helping entrepreneurs start and grow their businesses is her favorite legal work.
In addition to writing and managing her law and mediation practice, she mothers a wonderful and happy eight-year-old daughter, successfully co-parents with her ex-husband, loves two dogs and one rabbit, parents foster kids, and is partially responsible for her aging parents. Even with those responsibilities, she volunteers at her daughter’s school, regularly practices yoga and meditation, plays tennis, and runs several miles three to four times each week.
She is living the time of her life, without feeling exhausted or overwhelmed (though she sometimes has days when she is tired).
