HB Announces Alliance with Alliance of Women Trial Lawyers
We are proud to announce our latest alliance with a new trial attorneys group just for women on the plaintiff side of tort litigation.
Founded by plaintiff law conference veteran Nancy Holston, the Alliance of Women Trial Lawyers is committed to empowering these professionals, helping them to overcome “systematic obstacles and to realize greater self-sufficiency and wholeness through support, acknowledgement and utilization of dormant, yet innate strengths.” Before founding the Alliance in July 2018, Nancy was a principal at 360 Advocacy and before that the first Executive Director of Mass Torts Made Perfect. Nancy is well-connected in the plaintiff bar and is excited by the initial reaction to her new venture.
Nancy is equally inspired by the feedback she is getting for the Alliance’s first national conferencewhich will be held from Saturday, Oct. 27th through Monday, Oct. 29 at the Ritz-Carlton in New Orleans. The program features many of the leading women trial attorneys in the country and a range of topics on practice development, litigation strategy, preparing witnesses, jury selection, deposition skills, direct examination, opening arguments and ethical issues involved in settlements.
“I admire anyone who takes a risk to do something they believe in, and Nancy has demonstrated both enthusiasm and commitment to improving the professional lives — and personal lives, for that matter — of women who represent plaintiffs in mass torts,” said Tom Hagy of HB Litigation Conferences. “It’s an important mission and we’re excited to lend our support.”
“We look forward to working together to grow our respective portfolios and educate attorneys on important and emerging legal issues. There is an outside chance we will also have some fun along the way,” Tom added.
