A Message from Nora

As women lawyers, there is so much we can learn from each other. I think that we are at an inflection point in the legal profession. We are at a place where women can have a tremendous positive influence on the practice and business of law. Sharing our stories of successes and challenges – and providing, not only advice, but providing affirmation that so much of what we feel and have experienced has been felt and experienced by others can be truly life-changing. That’s my vision for this book. If a woman reads a lesson in this book and thinks to herself, “That’s me,” or “If she can do that, so can I,” that would be awesome.
