Est. reading time: 4 mins

Veronica Torres has always wanted to be a lawyer who helps people, but it didn’t happen how she thought it would.

Vanessa Walton – InnovAge

Est. reading time: 6 mins

The van pulls into the driveway at 8:00 a.m.—right on time. The driver then shuttles you to a clinic in your community. After a routine checkup, it’s time for lunch, followed by a few hours of bridge—all in the same facility. By 4:00 p.m., you’re back home getting ready for tonight’s family dinner. It’s a […]

Victoria Newman – TMX Finance Family of Companies

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Epiphanies can strike at any time: in moments of peace or panic, on a living room recliner or streets half a world away. Victoria Newman’s came right in the middle of a Caesar salad. While attending a conference for general counsels in Naples, Florida, Newman had dinner with a longtime legal head at a Canadian […]

Vee Leonard – Florida Gulf Coast University

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Short of founding your own firm, being able to grow in tandem with a legal-backed institution—through all the triumphs and pitfalls that follow—is something of a rarity. Then again, there’s a lot about Vee Leonard’s story that seems unlikely. Married at 18, mother at 19, law degree some quarter-century later and myriad life trials, Vee […]

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.
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.
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.
