    Phyllis Horn Epstein, Esquire of Epstein, Shapiro & Epstein, P.C. is the author of Women-at-Law published in 2004 by the ABA Law Practice Management Section.  She has bee asked to write a second edition for publication in 2015.  Her earlier book addressed work-life issues for women lawyers including such topics as: Family balancing, choice of career, appearances, pay equity, mentors and supports, attrition, and redefining "success".  To help gather information, Phyllis has crafted a new survey of women lawyers for the next edition and is hoping that members of OWBA might assist her by participating in the online psych data survey.  Answers can be given anonymously if preferred.

    Phyllis Horn Epstein is from Philadelphia, active in Phila and PA Bar Associations, a former co-chair of the PBA women's commission, and former treasurer of PBA.  However she doesn't want this book to just be a regional review of Philadelphia or Pennsylvania women lawyers and believe that it will benefit from a broader national input of women lawyers.  Her last book benefited greatly from responses from women lawyers from across the country.  Thank you in advance for participating.

    Her is the link to the survey:
