QWhat qualities do you think a successful attorney should have?
A A successful attorney must recognize that the law has a personal impact on individuals, no matter the stakes or complexity involved in their legal needs. Understanding how legal issues affect a client’s family, businesses and future is crucial. Successful attorneys embrace a collaborative approach by working together closely with our clients and colleagues. A successful attorney combines legal expertise, a client-centered focus, empathy and strong communication skills to provide comprehensive representation. These qualities, embodied by all our attorneys at Stein Sperling, are vital for navigating the legal landscape and delivering positive results for clients.

QWhat’s changed for women in business, if anything, over your career?
A Our firm has seen a significant increase in the number of female attorneys over the course of our careers. More than half of our attorneys and partners are women and hold leadership positions on various committees and practice groups within the firm. The nine Stein Sperling female principals have each started their career as associates at the firm and been elevated to principals. As such, we are committed to the professional development of our associates and senior counsel. Our achievements within the firm and the legal community have paved the way for other female attorneys.
