In honor of International Women's Day, which recognizes women for their achievements around the globe, we asked attorneys to tell us the female lawyers they admire and why.
Hilarie Bass, Greenberg Traurig LLP
I admire Greenberg Traurig shareholder Lori Cohen for both her extraordinary trial record of 56 defense verdicts and the way she leads by example both in our firm and the legal profession. Lori's commitment to mentoring younger attorneys and helping develop the next generation of trial attorneys is just one reason that she is a key member of our executive committee and women's initiative. At the same time, Lori remains dedicated to her clients, maintaining a busy and thriving practice handling some of the largest and most high-profile pharmaceutical and medical device products liability matters across the nation."
Patricia Menendez-Cambo, Greenberg Traurig LLP
“It’s a privilege to work alongside Mary-Olga Lovett. She embodies the entrepreneurial spirit of Greenberg Traurig, and is an inspiration for other women attorneys. If we want to make strides in the advancement of women in the profession, we need to learn from women like Mary-Olga who have blazed new paths and developed new solutions for serving clients and inspiring growth. As co-managing shareholder for Houston and co-regional operating shareholder for Texas, Mary-Olga is an important voice of our firm. Her exceptional work on behalf of clients, which she seamlessly manages while leading business efforts in Texas, deserves much praise.
