1 LOS ANGELES Women Leaders in the Law 2014 Girardi Keese Amy Fisch Solomon: Top-Tier Personal Injury Litigator and Mentor A SPECIAL Advertising Supplement to the LOS ANGELES Women Leaders in the Law 2014 ALM 1

2 GIRARDI KEESE PerSOnAL InJurY Amy Cantrell Given its deep bench of skilled trial attorneys who include partner Amy Fisch Solomon Girardi Keese has pioneered litigation in the personal injury field, achieving more than $10 billion for its injured clients. Amy is truly one of the finest trial lawyers around, and her results prove it, notes firm founder Thomas Girardi, who was ranked as the region s number one attorney in the 2013 Southern California Super Lawyers. He adds: She has had so many great results that it is increasingly difficult for her to try cases, because generally the other side comes around to her way of thinking and resolves the matter. Solomon has successfully tried more than 30 jury and bench trials in state and federal courts, obtaining many seven- and eight-figure results for her clients. Currently, she is representing women who have been injured by the birth control drugs Yaz and Yasmin; she has also handled pharmaceutical litigation against the makers of the drugs Actos, Vioxx, and Avandia. All of these cases involve a terrific amount of paperwork, and sometimes you see trial lawyers who are not so good at dotting the i s and crossing the t s, Girardi says. But with Amy, her papers filed with the court are just as persuasive as her oral arguments in the courtroom. Solomon began her career as a law clerk at Girardi Keese and has been a lawyer with the firm since Five other female attorneys join her at the firm: Amanda McClintock, Neyleen Beljajev, Celene Chan, Amanda Heather Marz, and Lauren Horwitz. When you join this firm, it s a life sentence without possibility of parole, Girardi jokes. Virtually everyone here was a law clerk before becoming a lawyer, and I think the reason why people remain so loyal is because they are enthusiastic about the work we re doing. Beyond her practice, Solomon serves as a role model for female trial attorneys by traveling to law schools and speaking about her experience at Girardi Keese. She is also a past- President of the Consumer Attorneys Association of Los Angeles (CAALA) and a co-leader of the CAALA Women s Caucus. The guidance Amy gives to younger lawyers at this firm is spectacular, Girardi says. And the dedication of people like her especially in terms of being an inspiration to younger lawyers has been an important part of this firm s success.

3 making strides The most recent demographic survey conducted by the California Journal found that women comprise approximately 39% of lawyers in the Golden State. That is a significant increase from 20 years ago, when women accounted for little more than one-quarter of the profession. California tops many states in this respect; nationwide, only one-third of attorneys are women. Still, there s room for growth: Nationally, more than 80% of partners in private law firms are men, and women fill just 4% of managing partners seats at the nation s 200 largest firms. In recent months, though, women lawyers in Southern California have taken on new leadership roles and sought out challenging cases. Here are some ways they are working to level the playing field: The California Women s Law Center (CWLC) celebrated the successful conclusion of a years-long Title IX case at Alhambra High School. In 2003, the school district spent $900,000 on several stateof-the-art athletic facilities that were for the exclusive use of its boys baseball team. The CWLC joined forces with the Legal Aid Society-Employment Law Center (LAS-ELC) to bring a suit against the school district on behalf of its female students. The suit was the first in California to challenge Title IX compliance at the high school level. After years of litigation, a settlement was reached in The school has since worked to remedy inequalities, and in December 2013, the U.S. District Court announced the end of its oversight of Alhambra High. Alhambra High School s work in connection with this settlement shows that any high school in California can comply with Title IX, which has been law for over 40 years, Elizabeth Kristen of the LAS-ELC said in a statement. Women lawyers also championed military veterans. Cacilia Kim of the CWLC and Elizabeth Kristen of the LAS-ELC were contacted by 19-year-old Airman 1st Class Trent Smith, who had been forced out of the military after reporting a sexual assault. The two attorneys secured an independent forensic psychiatric assessment of their client, which contradicted the U.S. Military s diagnosis of a rare personality disorder. They plan to use this as a basis for an appeal of Smith s dismissal. All I want to do is serve my country. I hope that our appeal is successful, Smith told the press. Other California attorneys turned their attention to politics. Lawyer and activist Sandra Fluke recently announced her plans to run for Ted Lieu s seat in the California Senate. Fluke first made headlines as a law student at Georgetown, when she gave Congressional testimony in favor of mandatory insurance coverage of contraception and soon drew the ire of conservative radio commenter Rush Limbaugh. I believe that the families and communities of this district from West Hollywood to West L.A. and from Santa Monica to Torrance and beyond deserve to have a fresh perspective from a new generation of progressive leadership in Sacramento, and I am eager to get to work fighting for the causes that matter most to our future as a community, state and nation... sandra fluke california senate race candidate After graduating from law school and passing the California Bar Exam, Fluke moved to Los Angeles and worked on behalf of causes such as the foster-care system and the living wage movement. I believe that the families and communities of this district from West Hollywood to West L.A. and from Santa Monica to Torrance and beyond deserve to have a fresh perspective from a new generation of progressive leadership in Sacramento, and I am eager to get to work fighting for the causes that matter most to our future as a community, state and nation, Fluke said when announcing her candidacy.

5 JAMRA & JAMRA, LLP family LAW After working exclusively in the area of family law for approximately 20 years, Grace Jamra decided to open her own firm in early 2011, establishing an innovative family law practice designed to costeffectively address the specific needs of each client. On starting her own firm, Ms. Jamra stated, I wanted to be more available to a wider array of clients and provide excellent legal services in a cost-effective fashion. With her background in economics and finance and her expertise in child custody matters and her reputation as a tenacious litigator, Ms. Jamra handles all aspects of family law matters, including complex dissolution proceedings involving custody, support, division of assets, including business valuations and post-judgment matters. In every case, Ms. Jamra always seeks an amicable resolution before resorting to litigation.

Sometimes they are facing problems with the taxing authorities, or in more serious cases, problems with domestic violence, addiction, special needs children and other such challenges. To navigate themselves through a divorce, clients need the guidance and experience of an attorney that is sympathetic and passionate about the case. But equally important, clients deserve to be education about the process so that they can make the decisions that ultimately best suit them and their family. It s important the balance a client s needs and priorities with the cost of litigation or settlement when representing someone going through a family law proceeding. In the end, it s critical to educate the client about the process they are about to go through. It is equally important to give the clients the options on how to best be heard and understood regarding the issues that are important and paramount to them. With all the challenges that face a client going through unchartered territory, our goal is to educate and customize a cost-effective and solution-focused strategy for each client that revolves around the client s individual needs and priorities as well as their budget WILSHIRE BLVD., SUITE 460, BEVERLY HILLS, CA PH: FAX: JAMRALAW.COM LOS ANGELES Women Leaders in the Law 2014 ALM 7
