The journey of women in law has been a long and arduous one. In a profession that has been historically dominated by men, female attorneys were virtually unheard of until the late 19th century when they were finally admitted to law schools.
Today, women make up a significant portion of law school graduates and are represented in every area of the legal profession, taking their place among the most successful and respected attorneys in the country.
Four examples of these high-achieving women are Dana Jacobs, Chelsea R. Harris, Mary Lace Guilfoil and Corinne Hodak of Coker Law.
For nearly half a century, Coker Law has been one of the most successful and respected firms in Florida, boasting a team of accomplished attorneys. As the firm has grown, it has recruited legal professionals who reflect the values at the core of their organization.
“We’ve made a conscious decision to expand the firm’s lawyers to better reflect the continued diversity of our profession and the Jacksonville community,” explains shareholder Daniel Iracki.
The four women featured in this special issue are all eminent members of this evolving team. Each brings her unique talents and a passion for the law.
