Collaborative. Reliable. Loyal. Impactful.
We are STARS – a team banded together to promote the development and success of our women attorneys. As an organization including women and allies, our goal is to equip our women with the opportunities and resources they need to achieve their professional goals.
Trailblazing. Creative. Fierce. INSPIRING.
We are the firm we are today because of the strong collection of women professionals and allies we have welcomed into our hallways – 38% of our attorneys are women, 30% of the firm’s partners are women, one of the co-managing shareholders is a woman and women make up over 50% of our entire workforce.
Señoras. Aimra’a. Yeoseong. WOMEN.
We focus on issues that are pertinent to women lawyers such as skills development, networking and business development, empowerment, leadership, work-life balance, recruitment and retention, mentoring, and community service. By regularly conducting surveys, we are able to schedule programming of most interest to our women attorneys and allies
Professionals. Mentors. Sisters. LAWYERS.
We host a variety of programming and events including panel presentations, roundtable discussions, informal mentoring, social events and networking opportunities with clients and other female professionals. Our offerings aim to foster business development opportunities while promoting and connecting women and allies.

“As a young attorney, STARS affords me the opportunity to become better acquainted with my colleagues in a casual environment. Through STARS, I benefit from the wisdom of my colleagues’ collective experiences as I build my career in the law.“
“I find it gratifying to mentor and spend time with our less seasoned attorneys who might benefit from the things I’ve learned through years of practicing. STARS provides the perfect opportunity for such interaction. Helping one another is what it is all about.”

Success is never achieved alone. We are at our best when we succeed together – when we inspire and empower each other – when we share wisdom gained through experience. This is the spirit behind STARS.
