Cowles and Thompson is proud to honor Employment attorney, Monica Narvaez, who was named to the 2018 list of Top 50 Women Lawyers in Dallas by the Texas Diversity Council.  The recognition comes as part of the annual Texas Legal Diversity Week which included a celebratory breakfast for the honorees, as well as events that honored in-house counsel. 

Monica Narvaez is Of Counsel at Cowles Thompson, where she advises clients on a range of labor- and employment-related matters.  She leverages her experience and knowledge as a certified human resources professional to help businesses navigate the most complex employment situations in the hopes of avoiding litigation. However, she also litigates disputes before the TWC, EEOC, DOL, state and federal courts, and other state and federal regulatory bodies.

The Top 50 Women Lawyers award is one of the honors given by the National Diversity Council.  They describe the selection process in this way:  “Award winners are chosen for their experience, leadership, and commitment to diversity. The National Diversity council seeks to advance and support diversity within the legal field. An integral part of this effort is recognizing and honoring prominent leaders in the legal community that embody and champion diversity.”  Cowles and Thompson is pleased to once again sponsor this annual awards event.
