Ask the Women of White and Williams

We asked women lawyers to share significant moments in their careers and advice for young women lawyers.  

Tell Us About a Significant Moment in Your Career.

Debbie Rodman Sandler, Partner, Labor and Employment
A significant moment in my career was when I successfully argued before the New Jersey Supreme Court in a case where the ability of employers to impose non-compete agreements was at issue. On a more personal note, one moment that stands out is being voted into the Partnership while on maternity leave with my second daughter.
Patti Santelle, Chair Emeritus/Former Managing Partner and Chair, Executive Committee
A significant moment in my career was being elected the Chair of White and Williams. It was a challenging time for the firm and for me personally because the former Chair, who was my mentor and long-time partner and closest friend at the firm, had died suddenly – but it was significant to have the support of the Executive Committee, as well as the partners and so many other folks around the firm, the clients and the legal community.
