The honor is given to women who have been practicing law at least 10 years and have made a mark on the law in the Chicago community.
Capra, who also is a registered nurse, is highly respected throughout the city for her experience and hard work, particularly in the area of medical malpractice law. She focuses on women and babies who have been injured by the wrongful conduct of health practitioners, and her knowledge as a registered nurse in the emergency room of Chicago hospitals certainly adds to her deep understanding of what goes wrong in civil cases.
McNulty, who previously worked as a Deputy Administration in the Chicago Police Department, heads the mass torts/class action practice at Clifford Law Offices where she has had great success against some of the largest corporations on behalf of those injured or killed as a result of wrongful conduct.
“Susan and Shannon epitomize what is good about lawyers in Chicago, and they serve as particularly tremendous examples for women and men alike who work in the law. We are very proud of their accomplishments and their continuing success in this complex area of law. They are most deserving of this award.”
-Robert A. Clifford
To qualify as one of Crain’s Notable Women in Law, the lawyer “must have shown the ability to power to effect change in her role and/or area of practice at firm. Serve as a role model or mentor to other women attorneys and/or promotes inclusive practices in the workplace and assumed a leadership position outside of the candidates’ law firm including professional organizations and civic/community service initiatives.”
We congratulate Susan and Shannon on this tremendous recognition.
