Congratulations to Donna K. Socol and Deane B. Brown on being recognized as Leading and Emerging Chicago Metro Area Women Lawyers by Leading Lawyers. This achievement not only highlights their individual excellence but also HSPRD’s strong bench of female attorneys and advocates.
Being recognized as a Leading Lawyer in the Chicago Metro area is a significant accomplishment that reflects the highest level of professional achievement and peer recognition. It indicates not only legal expertise but also leadership, integrity, and a commitment to delivering exceptional legal services.
Socol had this to say about the recognition, “I greatly appreciate this recognition and honor given to me by Leading Lawyers and my peers. When we founded the firm, our goal was not only to provide excellent representation to clients but to support women, diversity, and equality. I am proud to say we try our best at this endeavor. In addition to being a lawyer, I believe in philanthropy. I proudly have served on the Executive Committee for the Friends of Prentice for at least 15 years. The organization supports physicians and researchers at Northwestern Medicine who are devoted to improving women’s health and the health of infants. As a member of the Executive Committee of ABOTA, I am pleased to assist with civic opportunities in support of the Jury system. My belief is to approach any endeavor with heart, soul, and passion. Many thanks for this recognition.” Ms. Brown represents high-level employees and executives in employment matters. She is the Past President of the Women’s Bar Association of Illinois and the Illinois Bar Foundation.
