The Travis County Women Lawyers Association and the Travis County Women Lawyers’ Foundation held its annual grants and awards luncheon on May 6 at the Fairmont Hotel.
In addition to presenting more than $80,000 in grants to 10 local non-profits serving women and children in the legal system, the groups recognized outstanding lawyers and one law firm, Wittliff | Cutter, for its commitment to advancing women in the profession.
“At Wittliff | Cutter, diversity and excellence go hand-in-hand,” said María Amelia Calaf, the firm’s Managing Partner. “That the firm consists of a strong majority of women is no accident; it reflects the firm’s commitment to advancing women and investing in their development and success.”
Five of Wittliff | Cutter’s partners—half of the partnership—and nine of its associates/of counsel are women. The firm’s current managing partner and managing partner-elect are both women.
Wittliff | Cutter’s commitment to a healthy work-life balance and equity are central reasons so many women enjoy working at the firm. Contrary to conventional wisdom, a busy and high-caliber law practice is compatible with being a fully present parent and having outside interests. The key at Wittliff | Cutter is to foster mutual trust and open communication among all the firm’s lawyers, ensuring that we exceed our client’s expectations while maintaining well-rounded lives.
Wittliff | Cutter congratulates the grant recipients and the attorneys recognized by TCWLA and TCWLF.
