Hello, my name is Mishty Deb. I started this blog because as a founding partner of the Dallas law firm LaSusa & Deb, PLLC I am lucky to be working with passionate women entrepreneurs and I have seen their struggles first hand in finding good resources. I have also been incredibly lucky to have developed a network of women who are my peers, mentors, and supporters, which is something I know a lot of maverick women trying to make big changes don’t have. I wanted to create a forum for women by women because so many legal forums are targeted towards a male perspective of the law. My vision is to create a forum for discussion about inspirational women, current events, and legal hot topics. I hope to inspire and inform, as well create a place for women to connect.
