Cari Toneck – Methodist Hospital of Southern California

As an emergency room nurse during the 1992 Los Angeles riots, Cari Toneck remembers a city engulfed in anger. After four white police officers were acquitted of nearly beating a Black man to death, L.A.’s long-simmering racial tensions finally erupted. For six days and nights, buildings burned, dozens of people lost their lives and a […]

That’s allowed her to do […]

Paul Bokota – The HydraFacial Company

Many want their children to follow in their footsteps. Paul Bokota may get to live that dream. His youngest daughter is considering attending law school and serious about following Bokota, who’s been a private attorney, then general counsel for nearly three decades. She does wonder if he misses going to court, though. “I do miss […]

Olga Victoria Prieto Zamora – Alcon

There was a time when Olga Victoria Prieto Zamora believed that motion was the potion to professional growth. So the young lawyer would spend a few years each with Latin American law firms or companies, then moved on, eager to apply her learnings elsewhere and garner new insight. But she seems to have settled down […]

Nausheen Rokerya – Visiting Nurse Service of New York

It’s hard to remember a time before the COVID-19 pandemic. The days before social distancing and mask mandates often feeling like a lifetime ago. “I often joke that I don’t even know what I did before COVID,” says Nausheen Rokerya. “These days, roughly 75 percent of my meetings relate to work generated by the pandemic.” […]

Markus Green – Pfizer Inc.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention had announced that those fully vaccinated by Pfizer Inc. were 88 percent protected against severe cases of the COVID-19 Delta variant. The pharmaceutical giant and its partner, BioNTech, also were examining data for […]

Merritt McGowan – Lyniate

It was a harrowing and difficult time for Merritt McGowan and her family. They had moved to New York City from Mississippi in the ‘80s when her father began working on Wall Street. Just as she was becoming accustomed to life in the Big Apple, her dad was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, an incurable disease […]

Alan Schmitz – Connect for Health Colorado

Alan Schmitz couldn’t believe news stories about federal and state bills being passed that were 500 or 1,000 pages long. It didn’t seem real. Who would write that many words—and who would read them? He would. Since encountering those stories, Schmitz has spent the last seven years helping people understand the 900-page Affordable Care Act […]

Testimonials

I was honored to be the subject of an article. I enjoy reading Vanguard articles and seeing how other attorneys got to their positions and see their jobs. It's also interesting to see how different law firms partner with the subjects of the articles.
– Henry Marquard, in-house counsel, Stanley Consultants Inc.
As promised in advance, my feature in Vanguard has increased my visibility within the profession and prompted more than a few people I have not communicated with recently to reconnect. One of the Italian law firms I have used in the past is now in the process of interviewing me for an article on their website and tweeting out the feature story. Activity and the number of people connecting with me on LinkedIn has soared, which is great. The Vanguard writers and editorial staff were great to work with—highly professional and made the effort to make the experience both fun and rewarding (they were also respectful of the time pressures and demands all lawyers face). I was very pleased with the experience and the final outcome. Needless to say, I have been very pleased. All in all working with Vanguard has been a very positive experience which generated good publicity for both Shawcor and myself. My sincere thanks.
– Tim Hutzul, General Counsel, ShawCor Ltd.
The piece highlighting my company, Bob Baker Enterprises, Inc., came out fabulous. Our company is in the new and used car sales and service industry. Everyone was great to work with and extremely professional. They produced a high-quality product and have provided expert assistance and guidance post-production of the article.
– Wade Poulson, General Counsel, Bob Baker Enterprises Inc.
It was a great honor to be featured in Vanguard Law. Working with every member of the team, from the initial interview with Erin Clark, through production with Victor Martins, writing the article with Taryn Plumb and creating the final content with Dave Gushee, was a true pleasure. Everyone was very professional, enthusiastic and supportive, and their creative approach and positive attitude clearly came through in the final product.
– Kevin C. Rakowski, Senior Vice President, Deputy General Counsel, Compliance with Radian Group Inc.
