This commitment to diversity remains a part of our core values. Our attorneys support a variety of women- and minority-focused organizations—including DirectWomen, Forum for Equality, the Louis A. Martinet Legal Society, the Louisiana Diversity Council, NAMWOLF, and the Women’s Energy Network—and they’ve been featured speakers and presenters on many topics aimed at promoting diversity.
Moreover, our law firm is owned by women, and that makes us different. We don’t just have women on our teams; the majority of our teams are led by women. That changes the landscape. When nearly everyone else in the courtroom is a man; when crucial testimony must be elicited from a sympathetic witness in a sensitive manner; when appearing before judges with a reputation for being difficult—our approachable personalities resonate. Juries are impressed with what capable women can do in the courtroom, and they pay attention to them—likely because we’re all so accustomed to learning from women. Frankly, too many companies are missing out on the opportunities and advantages provided by women-led trial teams. But yours doesn’t have to.
