Congratulations July 2017 Bar Stipend Recipients

Rebecca J. Chmura

"Being selected as a recipient of the Orange County Women Lawyers Association’s Bar Stipend Award was a glimmer of hope during this summer’s stressful and tedious bar preparation. I would like to thank the OCWLA for the great honor and to congratulate the other hard-working women who have received the stipend as well!"

Cristel S. Martinez

"I am honored to be one of the recipients of the Orange County Women Lawyers Association 2017 Bar Stipend Award. I migrated to this country when I was nine years old, and as an undocumented student I always had to work full time and attend school at the same time. I could not have afforded all the bar related expenses without this stipend. After passing the bar, I plan to use my education to work towards an equal access for people who are deprived."

Stephanie Rigoli

"I am beyond honored to have received this scholarship. It will allow me to further my educational and legal career so I can continue to make a greater impact in my community. Thank you Orange County Women Lawyers Association for this wonderful opportunity."

Elaine Torres

"I am deeply humbled and honored to be a recipient of the Orange County Women Lawyers Association, 2017 Bar Stipend Award. The OCWLA’s generosity has undoubtedly eased some of the stress that comes with preparing for the bar exam. It is my hope to continue to be a part of the OCWLA and in the future bestow this great honor onto other women who aspire to be part of the legal community."
