September 11, 2017

Toni Jackson, a partner on the firm’s Affordable Housing team in the Houston office, was recently published in the American Bar Association’s Grit: The Secret to Advancement-Stories of Successful Women Lawyers. The book is a collection of 47 letters authored by a group of diverse women sharing their advice, insight, and experience as a female attorney who has achieved success in the practice of law. After discussing the events that helped her advance in her career and develop her practice, Toni says "… I now understand that I have always had grit–perseverance and passion-and a growth mindset. I’m just lucky enough now to have a name for it and the ability to pass on the skills to those coming behind me."
