In celebration of Women’s History Month, meet Maeve Degnan, an Associate in RD’s Business Transactions, Real Estate, and Trusts & Estates Groups. We connected with Maeve about the women who inspired her to pursue a legal career.

“There are many women, both personally and professionally, who have inspired me to pursue a legal career. Becoming an attorney requires a lot more than just passion for the law. Lawyering requires compassion and strength, which are characteristics I learned from my mom and my six older sisters. It requires confidence and perseverance, which I learned from attending an all-girls high school. It requires organization and logical thinking, which I learned from my law school mentor. And finally, it requires knowledge and practice, which I can thank myself for. I am very grateful to have been surrounded by outstanding women my whole life, who have exemplified these characteristics, and who have all inspired me to pursue a legal career.”
