About Creating and nurturing Communities for women attorneys across the U.S. for their support and growth both personally and professionally.
Girl Attorney, LLC cover
Mission The Mission of GIRL ATTORNEY, LLC:

GIRL ATTORNEY LLC exists for women attorneys (both those that do, and do not, practice law) to support and encourage each other both professionally and personally.

-------
There are FB support/encouragement/referral-finding Communities (on FB's highest privacy setting, so you cannot see/find them*) for every state in the U.S., and Washington D.C., and there is a National GA Group, too.

"This" only started a few months ago (July 2016), so while there are over 16,000 women in these groups currently/collectively, the "launched" state FB Groups vary in size from as few as 100 members, and as many as 5,400 members.

There are also a handful of not-yet-launched states which currently have no members.

If you would like to be added to any of these FB Communities, and you are a woman who has graduated from law school, please go to the Girl Attorney website, follow this link, and complete the form at the bottom of the page: www.girlattorney.com/facebook

If you are interested in possibly help launch a FB Community for your state, let me know that too!

Sincerely,

Susan Carns Curtiss, founder and CEO of GIRL ATTORNEY, LLC

*Please note - there is a "Girl Attorney - NC" FB Group, which can be found from a search, and which is not affiliated with GIRL ATTORNEY, LLC in any way.
Description The Story of GIRL ATTORNEY, LLC:

It was the fall of 2010, and I had recently begun working at a large law office in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, U.S., where my job responsibilities included vetting cases for possible representation. For the convenience of those I connected with by phone, I developed a habit of ending those conversations with, “Here’s my name and my direct line, but also, if you lose this information - as long as you remember the name of this law office - call back, and ask for THE GIRL ATTORNEY." I was the only female attorney that worked at that office, so - no matter who answered the phone - the caller would easily find their way back to me.

A few years later (having tried more than a dozen jury trials by then), while attending a trial lawyers' conference, I quickly noted that I was one of no more than five women there...out of well over 100 trial lawyers. What's more, over the course of that multi-day conference, I was repeatedly mistaken for "someone's spouse." There I was – with “my people” – but, simply for being female, I was also virtually unrecognizable to them.

I'll admit it; I was discouraged.

On the last day of the conference, from my back-corner-of-the-large-conference-room seat, I observed the otherwise collective chest thumping of the crowd, and I contemplated the role of my femininity in this “jungle.”

Me: Girl Attorney.

Naturally (for me), my mind wandered to the possibility that there was some source of solace for me online. So, I searched the internet, and was surprised to find - I could not find anything. I found stories and articles about working women in general, and working female attorneys specifically - some books, sure; but I did not find a community.

Before I got up from my seat that day I searched for - and then bought - www.girlattorney.com

Over the next three years, considerable thought, research, observations, experiences, conversations, and coffee contributed to the development of the context of this website
