Elizabeth Story was featured as part of Law.com's "How I Made Partner" series.
"Though I had a long associate track at my prior firm, I thought I would have to put in several years as counsel with Parker Poe before being considered," Elizabeth said. "The recognition by my colleagues to invite me into the partnership within two years of being with the firm was a huge honor. 2020 was a year of isolation for everyone. But having the surprise of making partner, was certainly a great way to start fresh in 2021. To have the ability to share good news with my family and friends via Zoom and back porch gatherings was really special."
"And, though it was my good news, I felt like others were equally excited for me," she continued. "I already knew Parker Poe was a great place to work, but the level of support I received after the partner announcement – including from people I haven’t had the chance to work with yet – really confirmed that we have a big family here. It was also a nice feeling to see so much support from others in our industry after the press release went out, including clients and opposing counsel."
