Molly will serve a 3-year term from October 1, 2017 through September 30, 2020. Leadership within the WYLC affords new and young lawyers the opportunity to build connections across the state and throughout the legal community. New and young lawyers partner with the WSBA staff and programs to plan initiatives to support others new to the profession. As a result, the Bar is enhanced by the perspective and energy of its new members. Appointment to the WYLC requires application review by the WYLC leadership team, which sends recommendations to the Washington State Bar Association’s Board of Governors Nominations Committee for further review, evaluation, approval, and appointment.
As part of her position on the WYLC, Molly will attend bi-monthly meetings across the state and will serve as the Spokane Young Lawyer’s Division’s WYLC liaison. Molly has been in private practice as an associate attorney at Winston & Cashatt since 2016. Molly’s practice focuses on civil and commercial litigation. Prior to joining Winston & Cashatt Molly served over two years as an Assistant Attorney General in Phoenix, Arizona where she represented the Department of Child Safety. Since her return to the Pacific Northwest in 2016, Molly has quickly become heavily involved in many state and local professional and civic activities including, Washington Women Lawyers, Junior League of Spokane, and the Spokane Young Lawyers Division.
