The future is female, the future is now. On February 27, 2018, HBAPA Vice President Jennifer Gomez Hardy joined a panel organized by the Women in the Profession & Solo and Small Firm Committee to discuss creative and non-traditional ways to develop business. As a personal injury attorney, Jennifer explained that most of her clients stem from independent business ventures, specifically a bar/restaurant she owns with her husband named The New Lou & Choo Lounge in Philadelphia and her rental property. She also discussed how strong business development can influence one’s bargaining power. Jennifer is a personal injury attorney at Messa & Associates. Job well done, Jennifer!
