Celebrating Women in the Law | Jessica Kometz

What advice would you give to young women aspiring to enter your field or any male-dominated industry?

Do not give up! The practice of law is hard enough as it is. To make it harder, there may be times when you are the only woman in the room. There may be times when you are mistaken for administrative staff (such as the court reporter or a paralegal). There may be times where someone defers to your male co-counsel when asking a question (even if that co-counsel is less experienced than you). However, not everyone has these biases. Women in the law have so many allies and supporters. Some of the best attorneys and judges that I know or have appeared before are women. These women are your allies, your mentors, and your advocates. There is nothing that you cannot do.
