Dallas Women Lawyers Association (DWLA) is pleased to announce an exceptional group of legal and community trailblazers as honorees for the DWLA 2018 Annual Awards Reception.
The prestigious Raggio Award is named for DWLA co-founder and Dallas legal pioneer Louise B. Raggio, who was the first female prosecutor in Dallas County history and who helped develop the Texas Family Code. Each year, the organization presents the Raggio Award to someone who has demonstrated the highest levels of professionalism while making significant contributions to the advancement of women attorneys. Other awards include Outstanding Corporate Counsel, Outstanding Female Lawyer (Small and Large Firm), Rising Raggio and our new award, Her Champion, which recognizes a man who has supported, encouraged, uplifted, mentored, and promoted the advancement and development of women in the legal profession.
This year’s Award recipients will be honored at a reception at the Omni Dallas Hotel on Thursday, October 18. More than 500 guests, including law firms, in-house counsel, and local judiciary are expected to attend.
