People at Mindpark: Jenny Jörwall from Jörwall Advokatbyrå

Can you tell us about what you do?
I work as a lawyer, mainly focusing on family law and criminal law. But in family law, there are several questions such as marriage or birth or adoption, even about life. There are questions with legal connection where I can be of assistance.

What made you take this path? 
Deciding on this profession, it just grew on me as I became older. To have someone that represents you, someone that could be there and step up for you when no one else does. That was one of things that got me into this.

What motivates you?
I think the biggest motivator is meeting my clients. I tried working as a business lawyer for a short while, but it didn’t suit me at all because I did not feel like I had that connection with my clients as I do in family law or criminal law. So that is the biggest motivator for me.

Can you share a few tips to be productive at work?
Try staying positive, that would be the first step. In this pandemic time, it’s something that we can overcome and it doesn’t have to be an obstacle for everything we do. Life still goes on. I try to do my work as I normally do with a few adjustments in how I approach my clients or how I do my meetings but also it’s a possibility to develop ourselves to become digital and seeing every possibility we have in that instead.

What do you like the best about your work?
I think one of the things I love most about my work besides just meeting the clients and being able to assist them in different ways, I think it is constantly moving forward to learn new things all the time and approaching them with curiosity and willingness to learn.

How do you manage a healthy work-life balance in your busy schedule?
My work is pretty special. My clients can connect with me anytime, be it 9.00 in the evening or 7.00 in the morning. But I try to spend time with my family when I come home. I spend a lot of time in nature and try to mix my work schedule with training and exercising a lot.
