AALRR embraces and strives for diversity not only in terms of our people, but also in the unique viewpoints, perspectives, experiences, and competencies each person brings to the firm­—and both the firm and our clients are richer for it. Like many others at our firm, the following individuals are leaders in promoting inclusivity in the firm and their wider communities.

    “Diversity helps open your mind to new ways of thinking and solving problems from different perspectives that may be unfamiliar in your experience. In my work as an elected trustee to a community college board, I serve one of the most diverse regions in California and represent people that have a wide range of language, ethnic, political, and socioeconomic individualities. The appreciation of diverse ways to approach a challenge allows me to help my clients solve complex issues with practical and effective solutions by applying a deep understanding of the law to my clients’ individual legal needs within the context of their demanding industry, whether in a public or private business setting.”

    “I have been with AALRR for most of my career in law. I began in 1986 and returned to the firm in 1998 because I recognized the caliber and quality of the people here. Having such an inclusive group of coworkers makes a huge difference in my work both internally and externally. Aside from making AALRR a great place to work, our diverse team is uniquely equipped to help our clients—many of whom are women and from a multitude of racial and ethnic backgrounds. Our diversity enables us to understand and appropriately respond to their issues.”
