Chris had the honor of speaking to defense lawyers from across the country on the importance of diversity in our law firms at this year's DRI Annual Meeting in San Francisco. Fast Company recently reported that while the diversity of law school students is steadily rising to nearly 30%, law firms are slow to catch up. Large firms boast no more than 15% diverse lawyers and small law firm's even less. Chris spoke about Coughlin Betke's commitment to diversity and the strategy it has employed to attract a high performing diverse team of lawyers.
Coughlin Betke is proud to congratulate Andrew on his recent election as President of the Massachusetts Defense Lawyers Association. The MassDLA is a voluntary association of trial lawyers who defend corporations,
individuals and insurance companies in civil lawsuits. The purpose of the MassDLA is to improve the administration of justice, legal education, and professional standards and to promote collegiality and civility among all members of the bar. Congratulations Andrew!

Lesley's practice at Coughlin Betke focuses on the defense of civil matters in state and Federal courts in Massachusetts and Connecticut. She represents corporations and individuals in various types of disputes, including products liability, premises liability, employment, transportation and commercial litigation. Prior to joining Coughlin Betke, Lesley worked as an associate at a civil litigation defense firm for six years. In addition to her law degree, Lesley also holds a Masters Degree from Princeton University in molecular biology.

Contrary to the old adage "what we don't know won't hurt us," what we don't know about our own biases may, in fact, impede our ability to mitigate workplace discrimination effectively. . . Employer's must fully understand that uncoscious bias, a form of unwitting and unintended thinking, can result in inequality in the workplace and give rise to actionable discrimination.
