Women Of Influence: Attorneys 2022


Custom Content from the San Fernando Valley Business Journal

Welcome to the first annual edition of the San Fernando Valley Business Journal’s special supplement honoring the Valley region’s most influential women in the legal profession.
There are some particularly stellar attorneys in the Valley who happen to be women and we’ve alphabetically listed some of the very best of them here, along with details about their careers, practices and relevant recent successes they’ve achieved.

The women covered in these pages have been recognized for exceptional legal skill and achievement across the full spectrum of responsibility, exemplary leadership as evidenced by the highest professional and ethical standards, and for contributions to the Los Angeles community at large.

Congratulations to the extraordinary women included this year and thank you for your contributions to the people and businesses of our region.

Methodology: The professionals featured in these pages did not pay to be included. Their profiles were drawn from nomination materials submitted to the San Fernando Valley Business Journal. Those selected for inclusion were reviewed by the editorial department and chosen based on a demonstration of impact made on the profession and on the Los Angeles community.
