If you could go back in time, what advice would you give to yourself as a young professional?
Veronica Nannis: Everyone doubts themselves sometimes; don’t let self-doubt cloud your judgment or hold you back. Anne Grover: Don’t be afraid to ask for what you want. Remember, you are your best advocate. If you don’t ask for it or pursue it, you won’t get it. Lindsay Parvis: Don’t be so hard on yourself—put that energy into acknowledging areas of improvement and focusing on growth.
What will be the biggest challenge for the generation of women behind you?
Anne Grover: Many women have been taught that modesty is a virtue and oft-times, women need to change their mindsets from the ways in which they’ve been raised. Be aware of your value and don’t be afraid to educate your clients or potential clients on what you bring to the table. Lindsay Parvis: Fewer people are seeing the merit in ‘slow and steady’ today. Technology makes us more efficient but seduces us into quick turnaround at the sacrifice of thoughtful, detailed results.
Veronica Nannis: Taking advantage of shifting social norms and seizing opportunities that were traditionally not seized by women. Nothing is handed to you; those who work harder than others, effect change.
How do you measure success?
Lindsay Parvis: I treat each case and client as an opportunity to learn and improve. Seeing that personal and professional growth over time, is success for me.
Veronica Nannis: For me, it’s knowing I am helping my clients and challenging myself along the way. Anne Grover: Representing my clients with honesty, showcasing innovation and zealous advocacy in court and in person is success for me.
