Christy Jump believes if we do our our jobs with honor, integrity and professionalism, we show who we are.
On International Women’s Day, I will #PressforProgress by protecting my clients’ rights to be free from discrimination as I argue on their behalf in the courtroom. The design of our Federal court system does not allow for bias and discrimination, and if present, is revealed and called out promptly by others. As a bonus, I have the pleasure of appearing before a female District Court Judge on this day when I present my arguments. In doing our jobs with honor, integrity and professionalism, we show who we are and that our right to appear cannot be doubted. I work to instill that same sense of honor and integrity in the young attorneys with whom I work, male and female equally, as well as what I think is a justified sense of awe even today at the opportunities and possibilities our profession provides. Hopefully, both the female and male attorneys who may learn from me will also learn to respect the actions and abilities of those around them who earn it, independent of gender.
