Anthony Arguijo, Partner and Chair of DE&I Committee
SDM prides itself on its diversity and values the participation of minorities and women in the provision of legal services. Women and minorities make up 40% of our total lawyers and 40% of our equity partners.
We are committed to being a diverse and equitable law firm. SDM stepped out as a trailblazer when the firm named a woman as Managing Partner in 1992, long before many of our peer firms. Over the past five years, 40% of our new equity partners have been women & minorities. As of the 2019 Travis County Women Lawyer’s Report, we have the most women equity partners of any law office in Austin.
We value the contributions that diverse backgrounds bring to our firm and recognize that our clients benefit from these perspectives in solving legal issues. Through its Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee, SDM maintains a deliberate and committed effort to support and promote women and minorities at our firm and in the legal industry.
