“As a woman in law, I hold the responsibility to advocate for equality and respect for women and help women lawyers flourish in the legal profession as we work to make a difference for other women, families, and our communities.”
–Sarah F. King, Partner, Clifford Law Offices, WBAI Second Vice President and Illinois Trial Lawyers Association Board of Directors and Women’s Caucus
The WBAI was established in 1914 by nine women lawyers practicing in the Chicago area with the intent to promote the interests and welfare of women lawyers. It is one of the oldest and largest bar associations in the state of Illinois.
Clifford Law Offices is proud to be home to several leading female attorneys who have established themselves among the top women in law in the greater Chicago area. Partner Sarah F. King, WBAI Second Vice President, along with partners Shannon M. McNulty and Yvette C. Loizon, are included in the Notable Women in Law in 2022 list published annually by Crain’s Chicago Business. The women are honored for their legal success and accomplishments over the last 18 months while in a senior-level role, practicing a minimum of 10 years, and serving as role models for other women attorneys.
Not only do these attorneys exemplify excellence in their field, but they also serve as a voice for justice advocating for women, children, and families, promoting the success and growth of women in the legal profession, and making a difference in the Chicago community and advancing the objectives of the Women’s Bar Association of Illinois.
