Top Women Attorneys in Los Angeles

   

Custom Content from the Los Angeles Business Journal

Welcome to the 2020 edition of our annual special supplement honoring LA’s most influential women attorneys. According to the American Bar Association, 38% of practicing attorneys today are women– and that number will continue to move toward balance when you consider that law school enrollment is currently 49% female. Los Angeles is truly a national leader when it comes to influential women – and the field of law is no exception. There are some particularly stellar attorneys in the LA region who happen to be women and we’ve alphabetically listed some of the best of them here, along with information about their careers, practice and some relevant recent successes they’ve achieved.

These are the honorees and finalists we singled out 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 superb attorneys who made this list and thank you for all you do for the people and businesses of the Los Angeles region.
