The Q&A profile highlighted Michele’s leadership in estate planning and mentoring women in the law.

Partner Michele Mulrooney has been profiled by the California Community Foundation (CCF) as a leading trusts and estates attorney, a driving force for philanthropy and a mentor to women in the legal profession.

In a Q&A profile, Michele discussed the importance of philanthropy and the satisfaction she gets both from helping clients realize their philanthropic goals and personally giving back to the institutions that fostered her talents and career.

“On a personal level, I feel like I’ve been blessed with an amazing career,” Michele told CCF. “I feel it’s important to donate your time and not only your money.”

The publication also highlighted Michele’s path to becoming a partner in Willkie’s Private Clients Group, the vital mentorship she received and her commitment to helping other women excel in their own legal careers.

“For me, being a mentor and advocate for women in the workplace allows me to make long-lasting change. I get to draw from my lived experiences to help a new generation and that is very fulfilling,” Michele said. “That’s my biggest success.”
