Legal Grounds | Allison Stewart

Legal Grounds | Allison Stewart

I think it’s fair to say that positivity is a little harder to come by nowadays. And if the entire legal field had shifted only 4 years into my legal career, I could confidently say I would have been completely overwhelmed. That’s why my guest this week, Allison Stewart, is something of a rockstar in my book.Now a 5-Year Associate at the world-renowned law firm, Greenberg Traurig, Allison focuses her practice on financial services, technology & healthcare. But her body of expertise is growing by the day. But even before she began practicing law, Allison had established her presence in the field as a National Champion of Duberstein Bankruptcy Moot Court Competition, an editor of the SMU Law Review, and a Board Member of the Order of Barristers.As if that wasn’t enough, she is also the creator & host of the Podcast, Women in Law – On The Record, which aims to lift up women at every stage of their lives & legal careers. And in a happy surprise, she also turned out to be a fellow NPR Nerd… Enjoy the show!
