She Stands Tall®

Don’t mistake politeness for lack of strength.

– U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonya Sotomayor

As a woman-owned law firm, we created a community to support women business owners and encourage their personal growth and development. In this monthly speaker series, we share stories, advice, and resources to help women both in and out of the workplace.

Women’s work-related struggles are different, but common threads exist including lower pay (a woman earns only 79% of what a man earns) and slower promotion rates. In 2018, 40% of U.S. businesses were owned by women – bringing in $1.8 trillion in revenue and employing 9.2 million people.
