The mere idea of going into business with a parent is enough to make most people shudder with horror. But for the mother-daughter immigration law team of Norine and Julie Krasnogor, it has been a recipe for success. Their practice, Krasnogor & Krasnogor, which came to life three years ago when daughter Julie joined her mother’s solo practice, last year expanded into Manhattan from its original office in Stamford, Conn. Clients and colleagues say the pair has earned a reputation for personal and responsive representation, while avoiding the potentially combustible side effects of the combination. As for the burning question of how they get along, the Krasnogors said that they are usually, although not always, successful at sublimating their family hierarchy while they are at work. “She’s extremely respectful of me and always asks my opinion on things,” Julie said. “But I would say there’s an inadvertent tendency to revert to a mother-daughter relationship. Of course there’s friction because it’s a parental figure.” “Do you think I’m a benign despot?” Norine asked with a laugh. On the other hand, the relationship affords Julie certain freedoms seldom seen in the workplace. “I don’t know if another employee would feel comfortable helping themselves to the lunch in my refrigerator,” Norine said.
