The Philadelphia Chapter of the Women’s White Collar Defense Association was started in 2011 and has a growing membership. The Philadelphia Chapter is open to all women attorneys in the white collar defense arena and is composed of partners, counsel and associates from major law firms and boutiques and solo practitioners. The Philadelphia chapter holds quarterly events for its members ranging from luncheons featuring speakers such as Philadelphia’s first woman Inspector General to networking cocktail receptions. The Philadelphia Chapter also offers a mentoring program which partners senior and junior women who meet quarterly. Our Association is regularly in contact with each other and supports each other with acknowledgements of our members’ achievements and referrals. We welcome members of other women’s white collar networks from across the country to our events whenever they find themselves in Philadelphia.


The Philadelphia Chapter accepts Law Firm Attorney Members and Consultant Members as defined:
