The women attorneys and soon-to-be-attorneys of DFISL attended a well-deserved outing at Malibu Café hosted by our outstanding female partners, Erin Hallissy, Maureen Michail and Bernadette Castillo Brouses. DFISL is fortunate to have such talented mentors that are paving the way for the next generation of female attorneys. In support of its women attorneys, DFISL recently became a signatory to the 2021 Call to Action for the advancement of women lawyers. As a participating employer, DFISL has agreed to take part in a coalition with the LACBA-WLALA Joint Task Force and has signed on to institute initiatives that identify and address the needs of women lawyers and diverse women lawyers.
DFISL enjoyed a visit with Lakers great Byron Scott and business phenomenon Charles Norris. Byron and Charlie recently authored Slam-Dunk Success, an invaluable guide to success on the court and in the boardroom. The DFISL team was treated to a humorous and inspiring presentation, full of useful tips on how to achieve one’s goals and succeed in any endeavor. Our heartfelt thanks to Charlie and Byron!
