Richmond lawyer Michele Satterlund was elected president of the Metro Richmond Women’s Bar Association last month.
Satterlund, a partner at McGuireWoods who also is a senior vice president at McGuireWoods Consulting, will focus on growing the association’s membership during her yearlong term.
“Women lawyers in the Richmond region practice in small nonprofits, represent the public sector, litigate in large firms and provide counsel to corporations,” Satterlund said in a news release. “It’s important that the association meets the needs of all these women.”
With more than 220 members, MRWBA supports professional development of women lawyers through education and networking opportunities. It hosts CLE events and fundraisers and participates in numerous annual public service projects.
MRWBA also publishes a biannual guide to Virginia domestic relations law that is distributed to legal aid organizations statewide.
