“The Female Attorneys You Admire”
In honor of International Women’s Day, which recognizes women for their achievements around the globe, we asked attorneys to tell us the female lawyers they admire and why.
Read on to find out who inspires the more than 30 lawyers who answered our call.
Mary McNulty, Thompson & Knight LLP
“Throughout her career as a tax controversy lawyer, law firm leader at Thompson & Knight and senior government official, Emily Parker has excelled in industries and practice areas not traditionally associated with women, paving the way for others to follow in her footsteps. An excellent communicator, outstanding mentor and distinguished lawyer, Emily provides invaluable advice on client matters, tax law, career and management issues. She has a keen ability to zero in on the issue, understand what motivates people, and provide a practical solution. After 25 years of practicing together, I am amazed at how much I continue to learn from watching Emily in action.”
