Posted May 4, 2023 at 12:45 PM

In 2006 and upon the realization that “the State’s history of female lawyers was lost” on members of the Bar and the general public, Judge Lynne A. Battaglia founded The Finding Justice Project, which resulted in extensive historical research and the publication of Finding Justice: A History of Women Lawyers in Maryland Since 1642 (“Finding Justice”).

In the spirit of Finding Justice, MM&C Litigation Attorney, Diane Feuerherd authored a recent post to Maryland Appellate Blog – Who was Maryland’s first female appellate attorney?
