Texas Lawyer Features Holly O'Neil and Kim Yelkin as Female Law Firm Leaders


Texas Lawyer highlighted female law firm leaders in Texas. In the article, "The Secret is Out: Texas is Good for Women in Law and Leading Ladies," Texas Lawyer reported that women all over Texas have assumed leadership positions in firms and companies, despite the challenges they continue to face regarding gender differences in rain-making and perceptions of female attorneys by judges and juries. Gardere Chair Holland N. O'Neil and Austin Office Executive Partner Kimberly A. Yelkin were two of the women included on Texas Lawyers' list of women who have assumed leadership positions at their Firm.

Texas Lawyer also featured Ms. O'Neil in its article, "Leading Ladies: More Women are Running Large Law," stating that she is one of only five women in Texas who holds a top position at one of the state's largest firms. Nineteen of Texas' 25 largest firms shared data showing that overall women make up 30 percent of the firms: lawyers, 20 percent of the partners and 16 percent of the equity partners.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
