About  Carolyn:

Carolyn Jahnke is the Founding Attorney of Athena Legal Solutions. She founded Athena to empower and advise entrepreneurs about how to protect and grow their business value. Unlike other attorneys who have spent their years honing their craft in law firms, Carolyn never worked in a law firm. Instead, she honed her craft as in-house counsel, focused on helping businesses achieve their strategic and financial goals. Her clients value this background, as being an a great attorney isn’t just about knowing the law, it is knowing how businesses work and function in order to drive ethical and profitable business decisions.


As a wife, mother to four children under the age of 12 who are currently in virtual schools, and a director on statewide and community nonprofit boards, Carolyn understands and empathizes with the many demands that small business owners must balance  every day. If you and your company want a trusted legal and business advisor who will give you peace of mind related to the challenges of your business – Carolyn is the right partner to advise, inspire, and counsel you in achieving your goals.
