The Women and the Law Committee congratulates members Margaret Manetti and Kristen Prinz on being named to Crain’s Business Most Influential Women Lawyers in Chicago. Only 60 women attorneys received this distinct honor from the Chicagoland legal community, which was all nomination-based.
Margaret Manetti works at Codilis and Associates as a supervising attorney, overseeing and training junior attorneys in consumer finance litigation, as well as conducting trainings in house on discovery skills, bankruptcy, the practical application of Illinois law in eviction court, and the Consumer Finance Protection Bureau regulations. She was just named as the ISBA Cook County Young Lawyer of the Year in 2017. Margaret balances her role at work with her husband, also an attorney, and their two children.
Kristen E. Prinz is the principal and managing partner of The Prinz Law Firm, where she prides herself on working to make employment better for businesses and employees. Kristen both litigates cases on the trial and appellate level, and counsels executives, professionals and business owners on all aspects of employment law. Kristen also runs her firm while being an active mother to daughters Zoey and Olive, ages 4 and 2, respectively.
WATL prides ourselves on nominating and supporting our members for honors and awards within the ISBA and the legal community at large.
