Susan called me over. I'm a lawyer, and I also work for a law firm. I pumped until Joe was one. Do you have an office with a door that closes? Because if you do, you can just hang a do-not-disturb sign on your door and pump while carrying on with your regular business - work on drafting memos/motions, take phone calls (I found no one could hear the pump unless it was on speaker), write emails, do computer research, etc. Not a problem. I actually think it's easier to pump as an attorney than in a lot of jobs, because we do tend to have our own private space. I travel a lot for work as well, and I got to be a pro at pumping in the car. Before going into court, after court, before meetings, in parking lots, even while driving! I think you just have to rethink things a little bit. As an attorney, you do carry a lot of authority and if you are very self-assured and show no weakness or embarrassment about it (this is just the way it is), you may be surprised at how matter-of-fact everyone around you is too! Occasionally I would struggle to fit a pumping in around a big meeting, or something like that, but pumping schedules don't have to be written in stone. There is some flexibility. You can usually move the pumping around a little to accommodate your schedule. I carried a hand pump with me for long meetings, that I could use in the bathroom just to make sure I didn't get too engorged.
I'm not saying it wasn't work. It takes discipline and creativity. But there are professions that are MUCH harder for pumping. Like teaching. Those women barely get bathroom breaks!
P.S. You totally need a hands-free set-up so that you can multitask and work while pumping. That is necessary.
