Gordon & Rees Lawyers Receive Award from Washington State Women’s Commission

Gordon Rees Scully Mansukhani lawyers Nicole Demmon, Sarah Turner, and Amy Taylor, will receive an award from Washington State’s Women’s Commission in a ceremony at the Washington Supreme Court on March 5. They will be honored for their pro bono work drafting a model sexual harassment policy for employers in the state.

“We saw an opportunity to help and engage with the community and we have the resources and expertise to do so. I am fortunate to have supportive and enthusiastic colleagues who share similar values," said Taylor.

They will be recognized at the event alongside retired Chief Justice Mary Fairhurst and other leaders in the Washington legal community. This event is co-sponsored by the Women’s Commission and the Center for Women and Democracy.
