Texas Women Rainmakers Celebrate Fifth Annual Event


One-of-a-kind female trial lawyer event continues to gain strength in fifth year.

HOUSTON (PRWEB) August 17, 2018

The fifth annual Texas Women Rainmakers Conference will take place on Friday, August 24, 2018 at The St. Regis Hotel in Houston, Texas. Texas Women Rainmakers (TWR) is a 501c3 non-profit that charges no membership fees and asks for no political donations or contributions aside from covering its event costs. This makes the event the only one of its kind for female trial lawyers. Women lawyers across the country have sought advice and help from the group in efforts to host similar local events. The event aims to bring women's specific career struggles to light, often opting for the best speaker for the group instead of the speech that will earn the lawyers the most continuing education credit.

The exclusively female Steering Committee is comprised of lawyers hailing from across the state, including attorneys Sofia Bruera, Stacey Burke, Erin Copeland, Christina Feller, Caryn Papantonakis, and Shalimar Wallis.

Robin Young-Ellis, MSSC continues her gold headline sponsor support for the fifth consecutive year. Mrs. Young-Ellis is a prolific philanthropist and humanitarian across many causes, and donates a percentage of her annual earnings to a number of health, disability, military, and educational organizations. As a successful female entrepreneur in the male-dominated legal industry, she knows firsthand the challenges women in the legal world face. She continues her ongoing support of others by sponsoring the professional and personal development of strong female trial lawyers through Texas Women Rainmakers. Mrs. Young-Ellis has specialized in settlement planning, including structured settlements, for over 25 years and is considered one of the best in the business, winning many professional awards.

Tickets are $65.00 for the full day event featuring female Keynote Speakers Renee Trudeau and Linda Larsen. The conference both starts and concludes with networking happy hours. Tickets may be purchased via EventBrite. For more information about Texas Women Rainmakers visit or find us on Facebook, Instagram, or LinkedIn.
