Lauren G. Raines quoted in article “Female Lawyers Face Bias, Florida Bar Survey Shows”The Tampa Tribune 03/27/16
Below is an excerpt:
Another Tampa lawyer, Lauren Raines, had a similar outlook. She said she’s been fortunate because she hasn’t experienced some of the gender biases she’s seen and heard about from other legal colleagues.
Raines is also a mother of two young children, and after she gave birth to her second child, her firm, Quarles & Brady, provided a flexible work schedule to enable her to strike the right balance.
She said the firm views this arrangement as an investment in the future of its employees. “That speaks for Quarles & Brady,” she said. “And I don’t think that’s the norm. ... Other women, and I’ve talked to them in the community, aren’t having these same opportunities.”
