Trial By Woman

Trial By Woman is a community of lawyers, mothers, daughters, legal professionals, business owners, students and friends who gather to support, encourage, and work with one another in an effort to propel the shift out of the patriarchal hierarchy and into the new collaborative, egalitarian future. Together, we are putting the past on trial so that we can design a brighter, more vibrant, prosperous future. Women helping women and men; women healing the world and each other. 

About Courtney Rowley

Courtney Rowley is the owner of The Rowley Law Firm. She is passionate about personal injury law and has practiced on her own for almost her entire career. Her work is mostly personal injury, with extensive experience representing victims of serious injuries, wrongful death, traumatic brain injuries, spinal injuries and medical malpractice. She is licensed in California, Wyoming, and Iowa.
 
Courtney has obtained over one hundred million dollars in verdicts and settlements for her clients. She spends an immense amount of time with her clients and their families.

Courtney has been published in numerous publications across the country, including the Nevada Bar Association Journal and The Advocate.
 
She has studied and taught at the Trial Lawyers College in Wyoming, a college “dedicated to training and educating lawyers and judges who are committed to the jury system and to representing and obtaining justice for individuals, the poor, the injured, the forgotten, the voiceless, the defenseless and the damned, and to protecting the rights of such people from corporate and government oppression”.—Gerry Spence’s Trial Lawyer’s College.
Courtney lectures nationally, speaking to other lawyers about trial work and finding human connection in trial. She has spoken at numerous bar associations and organizations, including the Nevada Bar Association, the Wyoming State Association for Justice, the Colorado Bar Association, the South Dakota Trial Lawyers, the Washington Trial Lawyers, Oregon Trial Lawyers, Iowa Association for Justice, South Carolina Trial Lawyers Association, New Jersey Association for Justice, Consumer Attorneys of California and Consumer Attorneys of Los Angeles, among others.

She lives in Ojai, California with her family. When she’s not busy you can find her on a long walk with her kids and dogs, or exploring new places with her family.

#Shemakesadifference

She stands four feet tall and her hair is swept up in a pony tail.  Her hands are on her hips and her head is held up high; she stands ready to face anything fearlessly—even the New York Stock Exchange.  Sculpted in bronze by Kristen Visbal, the Fearless Girl has become a beacon symbolizing the resiliency and power of women.

This video is inspiring because it reminds us of the importance of gender diversity —on Wall Street, in corporations, in law firms, and in the courtroom. We have a little bit of the Fearless Girl in all of us.
