Features Women in Law

Allyson Guy Krause – Promethean

Students have taken personalized tours of the White House, spoken with a park ranger halfway around the world on the topic of adaptation, and even tinkered with protons, neurons and electrons—without having to worry about blowing anything up. Those are just a few examples of how Promethean’s interactive educational products are being used in classrooms […]

Ejola Cook – Off Lease Only Inc.

She had all the makings to be Vice President, Chief Administrative Officer, and General Counsel of this mega used-car dealership chain in Florida, Ejola Cook was told in early 2015 by Mark Fischer, the founder and boss of Off Lease Only Inc. Whether Cook would have enough work to keep busy if she left a […]

Peggy Barber – IACCM

They’ve existed since at least 2,300 BCE, with records from ancient Mesopotamia highlighting everything from marriage and mortgages to adoptions and bankruptcy. Without them, there would be no civilization, let alone markets or governments. And yet, these documents have become so fundamental to the human experience (and the daily lives of lawyers) that their importance […]

Alison Wisniewski – Epiq

More than any contract or services agreement, the most important pact Alison Wisniewski has ever been involved in was the one she made with herself. If she scored at least a 160 on the LSATs, she would leave her paralegal job, along with the acting career she’d dreamed of since childhood and go to law […]

Logan Maley – Procore

She relishes the role of an in-house lawyer for reasons that include the flexibility to work from home, if need be. Not that the to-do list is any shorter there for Logan Maley. On the contrary as she juggles new motherhood with her fast-paced job. “I still put in just as many hours as I […]

Joy White – Morehouse College

There were times when it all felt overwhelming, like the weight of the world was bearing down a million tons at a time. Here she was, an African American woman soon to be a single mother, trying to complete her summer associate position while the final year of law school—a white, male dominated field—loomed on […]

Eileen Simon – Mastercard

Heads down, earbuds in, fingers forever scrolling the latest story or social media feed, our cellphones have become the most powerful tools in our daily lives—even an extension of ourselves. But getting our phones to recognize us as individuals? Until recently, that was the stuff of science fiction. According to one of its top attorneys, […]

Kate Peterson – Citizens Bank

On a Tuesday afternoon in late October, just months after competing with 4,500 peers to win the 2018 Global Counsel Employment Lawyer of the Year Award, Kate Peterson prefaced her first interview with Vanguard with a confession: She’d come to work in mismatching shoes, and she was just realizing it. Such is the self-effacing way […]

L. Scott Askins – Kabbage

It almost seems too good to be true. There you are, a small business owner wondering how you’d ever double your microbrewery’s canning line, and up pops this website—something called Kabbage—offering small businesses access to working capital in minutes. There’s even an ROI calculator to help you zero in on the level of funding you […]

Yasmine S. Murray – H.J. Russell & Company

Inspiration to pursue a legal career can come from the most unconventional means. For there was 8-year-old Yasmine S. Murray listening as adults bemoaned how reggae artists in their native St. Lucia were having their music pirated with no recourse. “That’s when I knew I was going to help people who were being taken advantage […]

Testimonials

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.
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.
