CLIENTS PREFER A WOMAN PERSONAL INJURY LAWYER
Even though women now represent about 50% of law school graduates, there are very few women personal injury lawyers, even though it is well-established that many accident victims prefer a woman attorney. Accident victims feel more comfortable with women lawyers because they tend to be more sensitive and empathetic. Women who have suffered disfiguring injuries are less self-conscious showing these injuries to another woman, and discussing them with her. Men are also more comfortable with women attorneys, who they feel pay “motherly” attention to them, in ways that men do not tend to do.

The Difference Between Sexual Harassment & Sexual Assault It seems as if every time we turn on the news, there’s another accusation about sexual harassment or assault that comes up. We are living in a time where behavior that was once minimized and brushed aside is now coming to public attention. People now feel emboldened to speak up and are encouraged by movements such as ME TOO to take a stand. As more offenses come to the public sphere and terms such as sexual assault and sexual harassment gain traction, knowing the difference between each becomes increasingly difficult. Below we break down the difference. What is Sexual Assault? When people hear the term ‘sexual assault’ what usually comes to mind is rape. While rape is in fact an example of sexual assault, sexual assault includes behaviors less severe than a full-fledged rape. The United States Department of Justice defines sexual assault as ‘any non-consensual sexual act prescribed by Federal, tribal, or State law, including when the victim lacks capacity to consent.’ Minors, some people who are mentally or intellectually disabled, and individuals who are inebriated, are all examples of individuals who lack capacity to consent to sexual acts. Sexual assault usually falls into three different categories: (i) penetration (with a body part or an object); (ii) contact with genitals, buttock, breast or any other intimate body part; (iii) exposure of genitals, buttocks, breast or [...]
Many studies have shown that women lawyers outperform men as lawyers, even though they still earning about 20 percent less pay across the board. Miami-based analytics firm Premonition AI recently ran the biggest the largest scale study on gender in law that was ever done, and found that women outperform men at every level of practice.

Susan Hackett reports for The American Bar Association (ABA) Journal, that companies are valuing the skills that women lawyers bring such as "the ability to accommodate and collaborate, the ability to lead teams, the ability to look for different kinds of solutions.” Women tend to be less adversarial and better able to negotiate. Their ability to work better in teams means that cases are more properly prepared. That's probably why clients prefer a woman attorney to handle their case. A woman run Buffalo Labor Law Firm, Schröder, Joseph & Associates, LLP runs an advertisement which asks, "Ever Argue With A Woman," claiming that women are much more meticulous, patient and persistent in making a case. A 2000 UCLA study concluded that, when facing stress, men have a “fight or flight” reaction, and women “tend and befriend.” Women tend to be cooler under pressure, more able to [...]
