“Troutman Sanders is a place that appreciates diverse points of view, and does not hesitate to nurture talent. The proof lies in the number of women in meaningful leadership positions at the partnership level as well as at the admnistrative level. The pool of talent has enriched the firm, and support at all levels has led to even more diverse gifted individuals joining the firm. It is truly an exciting place to work!”

"Troutman Sanders makes me feel that my diverse background, network, and ways of thinking are assets that are valued and make our firm a better place. Whether I’m working on a brief for a major client or volunteering for a local non-profit, Troutman Sanders has given me the opportunities to achieve professional and personal success and to contribute meaningfully to the success of the firm."

"I came to Troutman Sanders in 1989 from Miami as a Lateral Of Counsel. I was the first Hispanic lawyer at the firm and within a short period of time I made Partner. The firm has always been large enough to allow for a variety of different personalities and backgrounds while creating a collegial teamwork focused environment. I have always had the firm’s support both in the development of our Immigration Practice as well as in my personal goal of recruiting, developing and retaining diverse lawyers. It has been a safe and inviting environment to grow in."
