Camino Law, a bilingual women-owned family law firm, is honored to announce that its founder and GBA member, attorney Abigail C. Seymour, has been selected to participate in the prestigious Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Business Program.
One of 170 entrepreneurs nationwide chosen for the program’s National Cohort, Seymour will engage in highly specialized training designed by the banking and investment company, in collaboration with Babson College, designed to empower small businesses around the country.
Seymour, a second-career attorney who graduated from Elon University School of Law in Greensboro at age 50, founded Camino Law in 2019. Her all-female firm is one of the few bilingual family law firms in the Triad. (Seymour herself is fluent in Spanish after living in Spain in her 20s, and the majority of her staff are native Spanish-speakers.) The firm’s name derives from her experience walking the 500-mile Camino de Santiago across Spain in 1995.
Now with a staff of 7, and having tripled revenue since 2020, Camino Law is known for its innovative approach to the traditional law firm experience. “Many of our clients are parents, and often have to bring their kids to the office, so we have a bright and cheerful playroom for them and a Little Free Library,” says Seymour. The entire office, a converted Victorian house near Blandwood Mansion, is decorated with artwork, some of it by Seymour, a former photographer and artist. “We represent and advocate for our clients, and sometimes that means helping them avoid litigation entirely. Overall, we want to let them know that our number one priority in everything we do is for the best interests of their children,” says Seymour.
As part of the highly competitive 12-week Goldman Sachs program, which is offered to participants for free, Seymour will join other entrepreneurs in 120 hours of training and mentorship in key areas such as business strategy, financial management, marketing, and leadership development. In addition to the invaluable knowledge gained from the curriculum, Camino Law’s participation will also grant access to a vast network of peers, industry experts, and mentors who will provide guidance and support throughout the journey.
“Camino Law remains committed to helping families stay out of court, stay friends and raise happier kids,” says Seymour. “Goldman Sachs’ program will help us to scale and grow in a way that will allow us to assist even more families in focusing on the well-being of their children rather than battling each other in court. Our participation in this program aligns perfectly with our long-term vision for success. We are excited about the possibilities this program offers and look forward to sharing the benefits with our clients, employees, and the community.”
