MEET CAROLYN JAHNKE
founder of Athena Legal Solutions
I left my corporate job advising big businesses on how to make more money by protecting their valuable assets and how to appropriately take risks because life is too short to not live your best life!
Founding Athena Legal Solutions has allowed me to use my business, nonprofit, and legal skills honed after more than two decades in the private and public sectors. Unlike most lawyers, I’ve never worked at a law firm, I've only ever worked as in-house counsel for an organization. Therefore, my approach to the law is based on the pragmatic realities of running an organization and focused on supporting you in achieving your goals!
I see myself as a trusted part of your team who understands your business and enables you to use the law to grow your organization and achieve your goals.
Too often leaders don’t seek legal advice until it is too late and the costs are too high. Proactive, instead of reactive, legal actions can set you up for greater success and help you avoid higher costs down the road.
I'll work with you to evaluate your needs and help you prioritize what actions need to happen in the short-, mid-, and long-term to help your organization thrive.
“As a small business owner, I hesitated to contact an attorney because of my lack of knowledge in legal issues and I was concerned about affordability. Then I met Carolyn, owner of Athena Legal Solutions and she assured me that we could prioritize tasks and keep things affordable. Carolyn was extremely professional, easy to work with and happy to answer all of my questions, and provide easy to understand resources. I highly recommend Athena Legal Solutions to all small business owners..”
— Laura Gleisner, Owner
“Like most people, I didn't really know how to get the help we needed with our new LLC and frankly I was a bit nervous to search for an attorney. Carolyn was so approachable and helpful when discussing all the different aspects of our work. She helped us think through things that we didn't even realize we needed. She was thorough and really took the time to learn about us and what we wanted to accomplish with our business. If you're needing help with your company but you don't know where to start, contact Carolyn at Athena Legal Solutions!”
