Women's Initiative


    The Women’s Initiative Committee aims to create an environment where women attorneys thrive as leaders in their profession and community. Female partners, counsel, of counsel, and associates comprise forty percent (40%) of the attorneys at Hill Wallack LLP. The Committee is committed to recruiting talented women to join Hill Wallack’s team of attorneys, nurturing the professional skill development of the firm’s female attorneys, and mentoring the next generation of the firm’s women leaders and legal professionals. Moreover, the Committee supports the career and business goals of women in the communities that the firm serves. The Committee’s growing list of initiatives includes hosting and sponsoring legal seminars, conducting round table discussions for professional and business development, and holding marketing events for both local and state businesses and organizations, and in particular those businesses that are owned or managed by female and other minority business leaders. The Women’s Initiative Committee members are heavily involved in the local communities in which they live and work, participating in, contributing to, and serving as leaders of numerous organizations, including those dedicated to women’s interests.
