Voice of Experience: Ann Margaret Pointer
Ann Margaret Pointer, a partner in the Atlanta office, was profiled on The Glass Hammer, an online community for women executives in financial services, law and business. Ann Margaret said that when she was in grade school, a woman became a Justice of the North Carolina Supreme Court and that had a profound impact on her life. "My parents knew and respected Justice Susie Sharp and pointed out her accomplishments to me. That, together with my parents' attitudes, helped me know I could do anything I wanted to do if I had the gifts to put hard work to use."
Ann Margaret has been practicing labor and employment law for 30 years. "Everyday is an interesting day because we are able to be involved in helping business people solve business problems."
She advises women to "find something you like to do and are good at, and do it." She also warns not to be daunted if no one has done it before.
