On October 28, KCWWL’s Criminal Law Section held a cocktail hour discussion with former Washington State Supreme Court Justice Rosselle Pekelis. Judge Pekelis shared an account of her personal journey from Europe to the courtrooms of America, personal anecdotes, practical advice and her observations about the experiences of women attorneys in today’s legal environment. She is an inspiring, warm, welcoming and admirable woman from whom working mothers like myself have much to learn. The event was held at Blueacre restaurant in downtown Seattle. Watson Immigration Law thanks the organizers for organizing such an inspirational evening, Judge Pekelis for taking the time to speak and share some of her stories and Blueacre restaurant for hosting.
