"Mentor Spotlight" - Barbara Monty of San Rafael

31 Oct 2011 3:00 PM | BALIF Administrator (Administrator)


BALIF's "Connections" mentoring program matches law students and newer lawyers with more established BALIF members from all over the Bay Area.  This week, BALIF salutes mentor Barbara Monty of Monty & White in San Rafael (montywhitelaw.com).  Barbara and her partner, Ann Montalvo, have been together for 29 years and have a 16 year old daughter.   Barbara believes that a mentor should help a mentee identify what makes him or her happy in life and in a career.  She says, "From there, both mentors and mentees can move in the direction of that happiness.  BALIF is a good vehicle for this exploration because we all have something fundamental in common - that of being "the other" in this profession and society.  BALIF members may also share a special ability to create our own lives, or at least have the desire to do so." Barbara's mentee agrees, saying, "Barbara is fantastic and very pro-actively engaged in this process.  The program has been extremely valuable for me so far."  BALIF thanks Barbara and the dozens of other current BALIF mentors for their dedication and hard work in helping our mentees succeed!  For information on becoming a mentor (or mentee) contact Young Lawyers and Student Committee Chair Dennis Raglin (dennis.raglin@sedgwicklaw.com)
