Over the course of her legal career, Nora has been integral to the growth of her firm. The practice went from two lawyers, a secretary, and a law clerk to a firm with five lawyers and a large staff. Through the innovation of the firm's technology and processes, as well as making good hiring and training decisions, Nora has helped to grow the firm's caseload from a few hundred files to thousands of properties under representation. She has also expanded the firm's services to include new income streams and has expanded the firm's reach to new geographic areas.
Nora is always engaged in groups that can help her and her firm grow. Her leadership role at the CBA allowed her to expand her knowledge and serve the members of her practice area. When she was chair of the ISBA's Section Council on State and Local Taxation, she was faced with an attack on her practice area from the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation. Nora lead the effort to mobilize the ISBA against the Department. The case was resolved in favor of the ISBA in June of 2018.
Through both of her terms on the Board of Governors, Nora has pushed with vision, honesty, and persistence for the inclusion of younger attorneys and women in section council members and other leadership roles.
