Gordon Feinblatt's Women's Alliance

Gordon Feinblatt's Women's Alliance has been instrumental in supporting female attorneys in all stages of their career by providing a forum where our female lawyers are able to engage in networking events, seek leadership roles both internally and externally, and find business development opportunities exclusively for women.  The Alliance has ensured that women's initiatives have been brought to the forefront, and important policy updates have been addressed for all women at Gordon Feinblatt.

Our women attorneys are also actively involved in a number of women's professional and civic organizations including:

  • Alliance of Black Women Attorneys of Maryland
  • CREWBaltimore
  • Executive Alliance (formerly Network 2000)
  • Professional Women in Building Council of Maryland
  • Women Environmental Litigators of the Environmental Litigation Commitee of the American Bar Association
  • Women United of United Way of Central Maryland
  • Women's Bar Association of Maryland
