The power of the internet and social media to connect people – both personally and professionally – never ceases to amaze us. Amy Guldner, a freelance lawyer with Montage Legal Group, recently reconnected via Facebook with Amy Kolln, founder of MOMentum. These two Amy’s both grew up in Denison, Iowa – a very small town about 75 miles northeast of Omaha, Nebraska. Amy Kolln, a former kindergarten teacher turned entrepreneur, started MOMentum to be a resource for mom entrepreneurs where they can gather together, share their journeys, build momentum and do business together. When she learned about Montage Legal Group and the flexibility it affords freelance attorneys (especially moms), she decided to interview Amy Guldner for her website.
Amy Leinen Guldner joined Montage Legal Group in January, 2010 after practicing for over thirteen years at Morgan Lewis and Bockius LLP and Snell and Wilmer LLP. Amy Guldner is Montage Legal’s lead attorney, and has become an integral part of expanding Montage Legal to law firms in the Inland Empire, including Corona, Riverside and Temecula. In addition to her legal work and caring for her two young children, Amy is a volunteer Court-Appointed Special Advocate with CASA of Orange County, mentoring and advocating in court on behalf of abused and neglected children. She is also involved with the Riverside County Bar Association and its publications committee. Amy lives with her husband, her almost five year old daughter and her seven year old son in Corona, CA.
