1 September 2011 Newsletter Pat Montes to Receive 2011 Louise Raggio Award DWLA s Judicial Reception Committee voted on August 16 to give this year s Louise Raggio Award to Patricia Salcido Montes, the founder of the Montes Law Firm in Arlington, Texas. Ms. Montes is a strong believer in the jury system and the need for lawyers to develop a true understanding of and empathy for their injured clients. She has earned significant verdicts in numerous cases, particularly those involving personal injury, and has helped many other attorneys do the same. She is most proud of her work encouraging and supporting women lawyers. Ms. Montes has served as President of the Mexican- American Bar Association of Dallas and as Director of the Dallas Bar Association. She has also been involved in the State Bar College, Texas Trial Lawyers Association, Dallas Trial Lawyers Association, American Association for Justice, and the Arlington Bar Association, as well as other organizations. She graduated from the University of Texas at El Paso with a bachelor s degree in social work and earned her law degree at Texas Tech. She is also a graduate of the Gerry Spence Trial Lawyers College, where she is a staff member. Because of her many achievements, Ms. Montes is a role model for women lawyers. We will honor her at the 2011 DWLA Judicial Reception, which will be held at The Mansion on Turtle Creek on October 11. See pages 7 and 8 for ticket and sponsorship information.

2 Wardrobe Consultant Bobbi Schwartz Speaks to DWLA Wardrobe consultant Bobbi Schwartz addressed DWLA on June 8 in a presentation entitled Professional Attire: Are You Sending the Right Message? Perhaps the most surprising part of Ms. Schwartz s presentation was that she is anti-color in both the workplace and life generally. Color is not hard-core Audrey Hepburn sheek, she explained. Ms. Schwartz prefers ensembles that include only black or gray, not even navy. Underpinnings should be white, black, or camel. She encouraged the audience members to step it up one notch in the office, noting that women are generally paid less than men and are fighting a battle every day. Heeled shoes have more punch than flats do, she added, and height translates into power. Ms. Schwartz recommended a maximum of three- or fourinch heels, however, so as not to distract. Her preferred wardrobe for women in the courtroom is all black. Hair should be simple and feminine, clean and understated. Shoes should also be simple. She suggested wearing stud earrings, such as pearls or tiny diamonds. Ms. Schwartz advised that you should strive to have the judge see you, not what you are wearing. Ms. Schwartz offered a few concluding tips. First, don t clean your clothes too frequently because doing so will ruin the fabric. Second, every woman needs three belts: a black alligator belt, a brown alligator belt, and a distressed leather belt for jeans. Ms. Schwartz encouraged everyone to acquire these wardrobe essentials when they are on sale! The James Street Group and Lifesaver Legal sponsored the event. Food and drink was provided by Edible Envy. DWLA President Krisi Kastl extends her thanks to DWLA CLE/Outreach Coordinators Ayesha Rafi and Sarita Smithee for organizing the event.

3 Show time On May 24, DWLA members attended 9 to 5: The Musical, a Dallas Summer Musicals performance. Kastl Law, P.C., provided free tickets to ten members. Pictured below, from left to right, are Judge Sally Montgomery, DWLA Director-at-Large Nicole Collier, Anya Lucas, and DWLA CLE/Outreach Coordinator Sarita Smithee. From June 15 to 18, Bar None performed *BLEEP* My Lawyer Says at SMU s Greer Garson Theatre. DWLA Vice President Joan Ballard performed in the show. Proceeds from ticket sales benefited the Sarah T. Hughes Diversity Scholarships at SMU s Dedman School of Law.

4 DWLA Volunteers for LegalLine On August 10, members of the Dallas Women Lawyers Association volunteered for LegalLine, a telephone hotline sponsored by the Dallas Bar Association. At LegalLine, volunteer attorneys answer legal questions from anonymous callers. LegalLine provides a venue for DWLA members to apply their legal experience in diverse practice areas while performing a valuable service to the Dallas community. Thanks to Alyson Vrana for organizing the event! Joan Ballard, Alyson Vrana & Krisi Kastl volunteered. DWLA Vice President Nicole Babbitt will marry Chris Knox on September 4 in Napa, California. DWLA Historian Kay Goggin, of The Law Office of Kay E. Goggin, spoke at the 2011 State Bar Advanced Workers Compensation Law Course on Both Sides of a Multi-Dimensional Claim. DWLA Director-at-Large Michelle Hartmann, of Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP, was selected to the s 40 Under Forty 2011 list. DWLA President Krisi Kastl, of Kastl Law, P.C., has been accepted to and will be attending the Gerry Spence Trial Lawyers College this September. Mary Alice McLarty, of McLarty Pope, L.L.P., was elected President-Elect of the American Association for Justice. DWLA Director-at-Large Jill Pollak, of Law Offices of Terrence G. Turzinski, P.C., and husband Patrick are expecting their first child in October. Michele Wong Krause, of The Wong Krause Firm, was elected by the State Bar Section chairs to be the largesection representative to the State Bar of Texas Board of Directors.

5 Profile Judge Roberto Cañas, Jr. County Criminal Court No. 10 By Christina Jump For this edition of the newsletter we interviewed the Honorable Roberto Cañas, Judge of County Criminal Court No. 10. Judge Cañas is an active member of many bar associations, including serving as a Fellow for the Texas Bar Foundation and Dallas Association of Young Lawyers Foundation, and a past board member with the Dallas Association of Young Lawyers and Texas Young Lawyers Association. Judge Cañas also serves on the boards of several local organizations, including Operation Kindness and the Kitchen Dog Theater. Below are his thoughts and observations based on his view from the bench. CJ: What was your first job? RC: My first job was to be a car mechanic s assistant. I hated it. I was 13 years old and my dad set it up with an army friend of his. I think my dad hoped I d learn something about cars but even today I couldn t change the oil in my car. CJ: What advice do you have for young female attorneys appearing in your court? RC: I would advise young female attorneys to exhibit a sense of confidence in court. Sometimes I think young lawyers are either too timid or too aggressive. Confidence doesn t mean you have all the answers because as a young lawyer you won t, but it means that you understand that you belong in the courtroom and that you are eagerly accepting the challenges of being a litigator. CJ: What recent practice trends have you noticed relating to female attorneys? RC: The trend I have noticed since I have been on the bench is that more female attorneys are putting out their own shingle as a criminal defense lawyer. Fewer are partnering with another lawyer (usually an older male attorney). I think it is great. However, I have heard from a few female solo lawyers that they have issues running the business side of the practice of law. CJ: How did you spend your Father s Day? RC: Both Mother s Day and Father s Day were spent fairly quietly at our house this year. We were in the process of moving into a new home during that time period, which seemed to eat much of our extra time. CJ: What is the best advice you ve ever received? RC: The best piece of advice I have ever received is that in times of adversity, ignore the advice to hang in there. Times of adversity are the times to scratch, pull, and claw. Fight like a tiger.
