On May 10, Jessica L. Rowe, of Aaron, Riechert, Carpol & Riffle, received the Elinor Falvey Award from The Women Lawyers’s Section of the San Mateo County Bar Association. Each year, at the Women Lawyers Spring Judges’ Luncheon, the Elinor Falvey Award is presented to a person or organization that advances the interests of women.
This award is in memory of one of the first women attorneys in San Mateo County, noted for her deep belief in equal access to justice. Dorothy Wolfe was an ardent supporter of the Legal Aid Society of San Mateo County throughout her career.
”Every lawyer has the duty to uphold the honor and standards of our profession, and improve not only the law but the fair administration of justice. In our system of justice, all litigants, rich and poor, must have counsel to assure that disputes are fairly resolved.– CHUCK RIFFLE
