What if women did as they were told by their government, society and culture?
Neda Soofi was born in Iran and is Muslim. She earned her first law degree in Iran and immigrated to the United States with her husband. In 1997 she earned a second law degree at Lewis and Clark and went on to become a partner at Schwabe, Williamson & Wyatt, one of Portland's leading law firms. Neda opened Soofi Law Office, her own law practice, in 2010 and is an expert in estate planning, tax issues and ERISA. Neda’s topic is: What if women did as they were told by their government, society and culture? Where would we be now and where will we be in 30 years?
Neda will share her personal story about the decision to leave Iran and create a professional and family life in the United States. Her message will encompass the fact that although we may come from different backgrounds, our rights as strong women need to be continually defined so that we make sure that our daughters are treated as equal members of society. According to her clients, Neda is known for her professional expertise, strength, kindness and wisdom. And she has a powerful message to share!
