Join us at our next mentoring event on October 25, 2018 at 6 p.m. at Mendocino Farms, 444 S. Flower St., Los Angeles, CA 90071 and hear from a top-notch General Counsel, Lynn Whitcher, about what you can do to land a job of your dreams as in-house counsel!  Ms. Whitcher is General Counsel of Md7, a real estate portfolio management and site acquisition service provider to wireless operators across 18 countries.  Prior to joining Md7, Ms. Whitcher was both a transactional and litigation attorney in the Los Angeles office of McGuireWoods, a prominent AmLaw 100 firm with over 20 offices worldwide.  Ms. Whitcher was co-chair of the firm’s Women's Leadership Forum for the Los Angeles Office and served on its recruiting committee.  She is incoming president of the California Wireless Association, a volunteer organization dedicated to educating consumers and local governments on issues affecting wireless network infrastructure; the immediate past president of the Japanese American Bar Association Educational Foundation (JEF); a former board member of JEF and Women’s Wireless Leadership Forum; a governor of the Asian Pacific American Women Lawyers Alliance and leads its San Diego Chapter; and a founding member of the San Diego committee for the Japanese American Bar Association.  Ms. Whitcher has been named as a Southern California Super Lawyers “Rising Star.”  She is a graduate of Loyola Marymount University and Southwestern University School of Law.
