Deborah Seltzer Griffin
My mother, Deborah Seltzer Griffin, is an inspiring Jewish woman. She was one of only a handful of female lawyers working in Boston in the 70s, and she was the very first woman made partner at her firm. She’s a published contributor to law textbooks and publications, a teacher and mentor to law students, an active and decorated member of several industry organizations, and an exceptional litigator to boot. Perhaps her most courageous feat was negotiating a maternity leave deal in the 80s when no model for one was in place. I will always admire how she broke the glass ceiling in Boston law, all while lovingly raising her family.
