The Wisconsin Law Journal honored its 2015 Women of the Law on Thursday at the Pfister Hotel in Milwaukee. More than 300 people turned out to celebrate this year's field of outstanding women.
Karen Tidwall didn’t think girls became lawyers. Her high school English teacher changed that.
Denasha Scott never assumes she knows what a client wants. In large part because of her willingness to listen, Scott, who specializes in estate-planning and business law, has risen to team leader of Stafford Rosenbaum LLP’s Business Law Practice Group and is now a member of the firm’s board of directors.
Ellen Brostrom’s passion for service started with a summer job at a soup kitchen.

Amy Shapiro often finds herself working with clients in their darkest hours — whether they’re going through a divorce or dealing with child support or custody concerns.
For Milwaukee County Assistant District Attorney Elisabeth Mueller, working at the DA’s office isn’t just a job. It’s who she is.
Kristin Bergstrom has spent a lot of time being the only woman in the room. “It’s no longer true,” said Bergstrom, one of the first female shareholders at Reinhart Boerner Van Deuren.
Gail McCarthy didn’t have anyone telling her to lean in when she became an attorney 35 years ago. She just did.
Ann Ustad Smith’s secret weapon is her friendly demeanor. Ustad Smith, chair of Michael Best & Friedrich LLP’s banking and financial services industry group, specializes in helping distressed businesses and meeting clients’ needs regarding bankruptcy, commercial transactions and constitutional litigation.
For Andrea Murdock, every case is something different. Working in insurance and construction litigation, the managing shareholder at Halloin & Murdock S.C. in Milwaukee said she enjoys the challenges each new case brings.
