The South Palm Beach County Chapter of FAWL was founded in 2003. Our mission is to advance the professional status of women lawyers, to promote the rights of women generally, to enhance the visibility of women within the legal profession and within their communities, and to create and maintain supportive networks among women in the legal and other professions.
Our group of dedicated women lawyers primarily practice law in the areas of Boca Raton, Delray Beach, Boynton Beach, and Lake Worth, Florida.
Join us for monthly luncheons with special guest speakers, receptions, happy hour events and other special events held throughout the year.
To my fellow South Palm Beach County FAWL members, sponsors, supporters and guests,
Welcome to both our new members and our returning friends. I am excited to serve as your Chapter President for the 2023 – 2024 year. I hope that in the coming year you can maximize connections with other lawyers and professionals who also share our mission to promote the rights of women, to enhance the visibility and professional status of women within the legal profession and within their communities, and to create and maintain supportive networks among women in the legal and other professions.
We have a fantastic year of programming lined up, kicking off the new year with our Membership Reception on September 27, 2023, at American Social in Mizner Park! Our monthly luncheons will be held at the beloved Mariposa at Neiman Marcus in the Boca Town Center on November 9, 2023, January 11, 2024, March 14, 2024, April 11, 2024, and May 9, 2024. On October 26, 2023, we will hold our annual Think Pink Breast Cancer Awareness Luncheon, which will benefit the Boca Raton Regional Hospital Foundation’s Go Pink Challenge. We have confirmed the Florida Bar President, Scott Westheimer, Esq., for a joint luncheon with the South Palm Beach County Bar Association on February 15, 2024. And, of course, we are already well underway planning our holiday celebration, Woman Lawyer of the Year event and Judicial Reception. A variety of other new and favorite events can be found on the events page of this website.
There are a number of ways to become involved in our organization ranging from attending our events to annual or single-event sponsorship, donating to the Rochelle “Shelly” Kerner Memorial/SPBC FAWL Changing Lives Scholarship or engaging with the Board of Directors. There is also a spectrum of networking and mentorship opportunities available to new and seasoned attorneys alike.
Our Chapter has a reputation for being a warm and welcoming group. That reputation is only possible because of the volunteer efforts and involvement of the men and women who commit their time, energy and resources to our mission, and for this I am truly grateful. I, as well as the Board at large, am looking forward to a productive and successful year with you!
President, South Palm Beach County FAWL 2023 – 2024
