Raising Three Virtually Learning Children, Running a Law Firm Keep This West Chester Woman on Her Toes

It’s not only her three children that keep West Chester resident Julie Potts busy, but also her responsibilities at work, where she runs the law firm Potts, Shoemaker & Grossman, according to a report from 6ABC.

During the pandemic, she has been taking her kids with her to work, and that sometimes includes the courthouse.

While they are at the office, her 11-year-old twin girls are usually stationed in a conference room, where they are set up for virtual learning. Meanwhile, Potts’s eight-year-old son shares an office with her.

Spending time in their mother’s office has taught the kids a valuable and unexpected lesson.

“I learned a lot about what my mom does, and I also learned that I don’t want to do it,” said one of the twins.

“The stress is terrible,” confirmed the other.

“The stress is terrible? So, we may not have two future lawyers on our hands here,” joked Potts. “My kids have been real troopers, I’ll give them that. I’ve been impressed with how the kids have handled it because it is hard. I’m not sure I could’ve learned that way.”
