A PFAWL Membership Has Its Benefits – Meaningful Connections & Lasting Relationships

 “Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.” – Helen Keller.

At PFAWL, we believe that we are stronger together!  We are dedicated to ensuring that our members are able to make and keep meaningful connections with other attorneys.  In fact, we create and host events where our members can meet other attorneys from diverse practice areas and experience levels.

In the works for the coming month, PFAWL will be hosting a Table for Eight Luncheon with a sitting Judge for our young lawyer members.  At this event, members will be given the unique opportunity to network with and engage a sitting Judge and learn practice tips in an intimate setting.  This event is by invitation only.  On October 8, 2015, PFAWL will hold our Annual Shrimp Boil where we have invited attorneys from across the Tampa Bay area to eat, drink and fellowship.  This is a much-anticipated, yearly event open to all law students and lawyers, with limited space available.  Make sure to RSVP today by emailing Elise Winters at  Lastly, on October 15, 2015, PFAWL will be hosting a Speed Networking Event for our members.  Please watch your email for more details on these upcoming events!

Throughout the year and years to come, we look forward to actively continuing to foster a sense of community so that our members can grow their networks and establish lasting relationships with one another.  To share in this amazing member benefit, please join PFAWL or renew your membership today!  You can join at any of the upcoming events or online at  The online application is through our state chapter, the Florida Association of Women Lawyers.  If you join online, please email our membership director, Shavarne Dahlquist, at to notify us of your application.   Finally, please include your practice area on your application!  FAWL and PFAWL have active membership directories to assist our members in finding member attorneys, which are searchable by practice area.  It’s never too early to start growing your network with PFAWL!

Hope to see you at the Shrimp Boil!
