    On Saturday, December 10, 2005, the Chicago Foundation of Women (CFW) honored U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg by inaugurating an award in her name and conducting a discussion with a panel of prominent women, including the Honorable Judge Ann Williams, U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit, and Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan. Members of the ISBA Women and the Law Committee were fortunate to have been invited to the event.
  • With gratitude to Ms. Parks, and Ms. Vinson, and the fighters yet to come…

  • Choosing the child care option that is right for you
    When my partners and I began our firm in 2000, we were three women who were just starting our families.
