Attorney Laura Tamez of The Herrera Law Firm was the co-chair of the National Association of Women Judges Annual Conference, which was held in San Antonio earlier this month.
The conference was held from October 3rd to October 7th at the Hyatt Regency San Antonio Riverwalk.
“I am honored and proud to be co-chair of this event that brings together so many brilliant women in the legal field,” said Tamez. “We have many events planned focused on judiciary issues and how we can all contribute to social justice.”
The National Association of Women Judges (NAWJ) was formed in 1979 to “promote the judicial role of protecting the rights of individuals under the rule of law through strong, committed, diverse judicial leadership; fairness and equality in the courts; and equal access to justice.”
The schedule of events for the conference included educational sessions, social and networking receptions, an awards banquet and a screening of “The Judge,” a documentary about Palestinian Judge Kholoud Al-Faqih.
A partner in the firm, attorney Tamez represents plaintiffs in tort and business litigation. She is very active in the professional community and is a charter member of the Texas Trial Lawyers Association Diversity Committee. She is a former president of the San Antonio Lawyers Association and served as the Minority Caucus Chair of the American Association for Justice.
