Signed into law on March 23, 2010, the Affordable Care Act has the potential to bring the most sweeping changes to U.S. health care in decades, and its effects will continue to be felt for many years to come. I think the biggest challenge facing health care providers today is staying on top of the ever-changing health care legislation, said Virginia Alverson Mimmack, a partner in the firm s Health Care practice group. The way health care is being provided and paid for is rapidly changing, and providers have to quickly adapt to these changes to stay in compliance all while trying to provide quality medical care. We assist our clients by making sure they understand the changes being made to health care delivery systems, health care reimbursement models, and the health care laws. We also assist them in proactively structuring their businesses and practices to survive and even thrive amidst these policy shifts. Fortunately for their clients, JW attorneys have the insight and experience to make sure clients stay ahead of the curve. The firm s robust Health Care practice includes several women partners who are leading the way in providing practical, strategic advice to clients in every aspect of the health care industry. We work to anticipate where the health care concepts are going and assist in developing strategies to prepare clients to be able to take advantage of future opportunities in the marketplace. The biggest challenge is positioning our health care entities to be ready to adapt to changes and define their future roles in health care, said JW partner Mary Emma Karam. The entire health care community is in a state of flux, and fear is pervasive in the industry. Entities in all sectors are afraid that they will fall behind and fail to adapt to the direction that the market ultimately goes. We work to anticipate where the health care concepts are going and assist in developing strategies to prepare clients to be able to take advantage of future opportunities in the marketplace. The shifting regulatory landscape for health care providers has implications for both the transactional and litigation side of the legal practice. A number of women partners in JW s Litigation group have developed expertise in representing health care clients in litigation and arbitration, as well as counseling their clients to help them avoid regulatory pitfalls. Changes at the state and federal level that apply to health care coverage have a significant impact on the types of litigation we see, said JW partner JoAnn Dalrymple. The changes related to health care reform have already started and will continue to have a substantial trickle-down effect on our clients.

For the past 25 years, Mary Emma has advised clients in health care and managed care contracting and counseled them in litigation matters involving emerging health care issues. Virginia Alverson Mimmack focuses her practice on providing legal services to the health care industry and has advised clients regarding Medicare and Medicaid coverage and reimbursement, corporate compliance and governance, managed care contracting, public law, physician employment issues, and special regulatory issues affecting health care providers and suppliers, including fraud and abuse.

4 Leading the Charge Susan Halsey Fort Worth Suzan Kedron Julia Mann San Antonio Susan Mead Retta Miller Jackson Walker s commitment to women goes well beyond recruiting and retention; our women attorneys play leadership roles at all levels of firm management, including serving on the management, compensation, and other committees, and as practice group leaders. In addition to promoting career advancement, Jackson Walker supports its women attorneys in their efforts to make an impact in the community. Here are just a few examples of JW women who are leading the way both in their respective areas of law and in the communities they serve: Retta Miller chairs the firm s Litigation section (its largest practice group) and is also a member of the firm s management and compensation committees. Retta is also a longtime community leader through organizations that help women reach their full potential. She has served as president of the Women s Foundation and was on the boards of the YWCA, the Family Place (a domestic violence shelter), and the affiliate of Komen for the Cure. Additionally, she served as President of the affiliate of Susan G. Komen. Julia Mann has recently stepped into the role of Litigation city leader for the San Antonio office. As a partner in the Litigation section of Jackson Walker, Julia represents a wide range of clients in civil litigation, arbitration and appeals, with a primary focus on commercial litigation matters. In addition to maintaining a robust practice, Julia serves on the Board of Directors of the Bexar County Women s Bar Association and was part of the Leadership San Antonio Class of Susan Mead and Suzan Kedron have long played leadership roles in the firm s Land Use & Municipal Law practice and through their work on some of the city s most important development projects, they are helping to shape the future of, as well. Spanning more than 30 years, Susan Mead s practice has earned her recognition as one of the top land use lawyers in the country. Her community involvement includes serving as a member of the Urban Land Institute, the National Trust for Historic Preservation, and as an honorary member of the American Institute of Architects. She has been active in neighborhood preservation, redevelopment of cities, and art organizations for most of her career. In her legal practice, Suzan Kedron represents real estate developers, land owners and public entities in a variety of land use and real estate development issues. She also serves on the firm s Diversity committee. She is heavily involved with The Real Estate Council, having served on several committees and currently serving on the Leadership Council Steering Committee. Suzan is also on the Executive Committee Board of Directors for the Area Habitat for Humanity. Susan Halsey is managing partner of the firm s Fort Worth office. She also chairs the firm s substantial Real Estate practice (approximately 40 lawyers in six offices) and serves on the firm s management and compensation committees. In addition to managing her own practice, Susan recently took the reins as chair of the Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce, becoming the second woman to serve in that role in the organization s 131-year history. 4

5 Retta Miller Knowing What Matters It s one thing to be a talented litigator. It takes a thorough knowledge of the law, a knack for strategic planning, and the ability to think on your feet. It s an altogether different matter to understand the big picture that surrounds litigation what it means, when to use it, and why it matters. Great litigators have a keen ability to stay one step ahead of the opposition. Great business lawyers understand that their clients business goals come first. By both definitions, Retta Miller is an attorney who gets it. From the small details to the big picture, from the courtroom to the boardroom, she understands that success comes down to one thing: knowing what matters. In trial or arbitration, that often means preparation: being ready for any possibility, planning a flexible strategy, and combing through every detail. That kind of preparation is especially crucial in complicated, bet-thecompany cases, such as the two-and-a-half month trial that Retta tried in federal court as part of a five-person trial team. The final victory in that case which was recognized by the National Law Journal as one of the top 10 defense verdicts of the year was a reflection of the entire trial team s relentless preparation and attention to detail. As Retta says, By being the best prepared lawyer in the room, you can present the facts and law in the manner that best benefits your client. Litigation should not be an end itself, but rather a means of accomplishing a business goal. This can be especially true in arbitration, an arena in which Retta has significant experience. Arbitrations frequently involve limited discovery, which means the cross-examination is blind, she says. As a result, you have to continually anticipate your opponent s next move. That is particularly challenging. In terms of serving clients, knowing what matters often comes down to understanding the client s business. Having an overall view of the client s particular goals, needs, and circumstances helps lawyers like Retta understand how best to pursue litigation matters. Litigation should not be an end itself, but rather a means of accomplishing a business goal, Retta says. Whether that is protecting the client s assets, enforcing an agreement, minimizing a negative consequence, or pursuing some other goal by truly understanding your client s business and needs, you can respond to them more quickly and creatively. And then there s another level of what matters, one that goes beyond the practice of law. For Retta, that s her avid involvement in the community through organizations that help women and girls reach their full potential. She has served as president of the Women s Foundation and on the boards of the YWCA, the Family Place (a domestic violence shelter), and the affiliate of Komen for the Cure. She also served as the founding chair of the Women s Business Conference an event that is attended by approximately 2,000 women every year and on the board of the Women s Business Council Southwest. These activities have allowed me to meet many extraordinary people who share my passion for improving the lives of women in the community, Retta says. Flawlessly preparing for trial. Achieving the client s goals. Giving back to the community. For Retta Miller, these are the things that matter, and success means never losing sight of them. 5

6 Serving Our Community Jackson Walker supports women not only in their professional careers but also in their efforts to make an impact in the community. Over the years, JW women have found many different ways to give back through their participation in charitable activities and pro bono work. Here are just a few examples of JW women who are making a difference. I chaired the OneRun for Cancer Support Community North Texas (formerly Gilda s Club) on September 28, 2013 at Reverchon Park in. We raised over $200,000 in support of CSCNT s mission, which is to ensure that no one has to go through cancer alone and that all people affected by cancer are empowered by knowledge, strengthened by action, and sustained by community. - Monica Blacker I volunteered with LIFT (the Literacy Institute for Texas) for over a year teaching literacy classes for two hours every week. It was a very significant time contribution but well worth the effort. - Sara Chellete While I have served on a number of nonprofit boards, the charitable work that has meant the most to me grew out of an Adopt-a-School program that the firm participated in many years ago. My assigned student, Joan, became homeless as a junior in high school when her mother was placed in a drug rehab program. I took Joan in, and she graduated from high school while living with me. Joan is now a mother with five children and has completed an associate s degree. When Joan again found herself homeless, I purchased a house for her and her children in a safe neighborhood with excellent schools. I am grateful that my career at Jackson Walker has given me the ability to make a significant difference in Joan s life. - Carla Cox I am a Trustee of Skidmore College, my alma mater in Saratoga Springs, NY, as well as a member of the Alumni Board and President s Council. I ve also taken on a six-year commitment as Co-Chair of the College s Capital Campaign with the goal of raising $220 million - $240 million. I estimate my time commitment to be hours a month consisting of conference calls and meetings in NYC and Saratoga, and traveling to meet fellow alums around the country. Our primary goal in raising money for the College is to build a new Center for Integrative Science and increase financial aid beyond the 46 percent of students who receive it now. It is a labor of love and truly gratifying, especially since I was a scholarship student myself. - Nancy Hamilton Giving back to the community through civic and charitable activities and pro bono work is very important to me. Most recently, I started and chaired a committee to support a school in Southeast that is 90 percent minority. Our goal is to provide much-needed resources to assist in educating the students, and I am pleased to say that in an area of the city with a significant dropout rate, students from this particular elementary school have a 100 percent high school graduation rate. I also serve as volunteer counsel to St. Joseph Residence, a home in Oak Cliff for the indigent elderly. I do volunteer legal work for Catholic Charities of and other Diocesan outreach programs; I am a member of Attorneys Serving the Community; and I have served on the host committee for St. Jude Children s Research Hospital s event. For the past few years, I have given over 200 hours in pro bono legal work and am a member of the Texas Bar Association Pro Bono College for 2012 and Mary Emma Karam I have served on the CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) for more than a decade and am a past Board President and current Executive Committee member. I m passionate about the work CASA does to serve the needs of children removed from their homes for abuse or neglect. CASA just announced a major grant and campaign to enable the agency to reach its goal of having a volunteer advocate assigned to each and every child in protective care. - Kathleen LaValle 6

7 Serving Our Community (cont.) I serve as a Board Member of Volunteer Legal Services of Central Texas (VLSCT), an organization dedicated to helping low-income individuals access the civil justice system by providing free legal advice and representation from volunteer attorneys. Based on its outstanding commitment to pro bono legal services in Travis County, Jackson Walker was recently honored with the VLSCT s Covington Award. - Marilyn Montano I am deeply involved with World Women Global Council (WWGC), a very diverse nonprofit that works to empower marginalized women and families around the world and locally. We are currently assisting WWGC s youth team - Youth Initiative for Women Leadership (YIWL) - with its efforts to raise funds for micro-loans to help women start small businesses to support themselves and their families. They are planning an event called Festival for Microfinance on February 1, Microfinance is something I have become passionate about - it is tested and powerful way to help women become selfsufficient, rather than a charitable handout. - Joan Sostek I have been taking pro bono cases through the Volunteer Attorney Program. I have primarily been taking divorce cases for women with children. I think this is a very grassroots way to give back to the community and to have a direct impact in helping women in need. - Katherine Staton I volunteer for Caritas, a nonprofit organization that serves the homeless, working poor, and documented refugees in Travis County. - Patty Tomasco I recently served as Chair of the Travis County Women Lawyers Foundation and will remain on the board as Past-Chair until July. We had a record-breaking year in terms of grant making and attendance at our April 26 fundraiser. I was also proud to see that Jackson Walker was named Outstanding Firm by the Travis County Women Lawyers Association (sister organization to the Foundation). I also serve as Treasurer and Board member of the Estate Planning Council of Central Texas. - Erin Tuggle I am on the National Board for Lambda Legal and I just finished a two-year term as Co-Chair for the Leadership Committee for Lambda Legal. I am also a board member for the WHO (Women Helping Others) Foundation. - Tracey Wallace Nancy Hamilton, Chip Babcock, and I recently received an award from the Texas Civil Rights Project for taking on a pro bono case for an internet publication called The Burnt Orange Report. Because of the significant amount of time I spent on the case, I also became a member of the Texas State Bar Pro Bono College. - Audra Welter 7
