Happy 2022! I am excited to report that I was again elected to the Board of Directors of Orange County Women Lawyer’s Association (OCWLA), and I strongly encourage all Orange County lawyers (both men and women!) to become members of this organization.  OCWLA is dedicated to advancing women in the legal profession by providing a professional network, raising awareness of discrimination and bias, and supporting charitable organizations.  During 2022, OCWLA is focused on providing more virtual and in-person networking opportunities for all of its members, including CLE events, social gatherings, and small group networking opportunities.

Besides costing only $75 per year (which we believe is one of the least expensive memberships available right now), this organization provides so many benefits:

  • Networking with OCWLA members, both in person and virtually
  • Access to the membership portal within the website
  • Access to member only events
  • Exclusive, discounted member rates for all events and many affiliate events
  • Participation in exclusive Philanthropy opportunities in the community
  • Member badge for website
  • Ability to participate in Featured Member Series blog
  • Affiliate Rates with California Women Lawyers and National Association of Women Lawyers
  • Mentoring opportunities with OCWLA member law students through local externship  programs

Join OCWLA or renew your membership today to become a part of this active and dynamic group. Discounted and/or complimentary membership rates are available for judges, government attorneys, attorneys with less than five years of practice, and law students. Questions? Email me at
