Partner Amy Robinson was recently honored with the 2022 Legacy Award by the Washington Women Lawyers (WWL) at the organization’s annual event on October 22.

A fierce advocate for women in the workplace, Amy has been active in Washington Women Lawyers since 2002, serving in a variety of roles including president in 2008-2009. After completing her tenure as president, Amy cochaired the Judicial Evaluations Committee for several years, while joining the WWL Foundation Board to support the organization’s philanthropic efforts in support of WWL’s mission. She currently serves as board president of the WWL Foundation.
As noted in her nomination from Hon. Janet Chung, Amy “embodies the ideals that this award represents. Amy is a whirlwind of boundless energy [and] the ultimate can-do person.” Friend and former colleague Kirsten Barron shares, “Advancing women in law has been a hallmark of everything Amy has done.”
Amy was instrumental in creating the Legacy Award during her term as president to recognize and celebrate women attorneys making an impact in their practices, industries, and communities.
