In an industry dominated by men, one Dallas law firm was bucking the trend.
Taber, Estes, Thorne and Carr opened their doors two years ago as one of only a handful of female-owned law firms in the state. Two years later, the firm has more than doubled in size, and added the first man to the payroll.
"From a day-to-day practice, it's the same. We still represent outstanding clients," said Kevin Muenster, associate with Taber, Estes, Thorne and Carr. "The culture is different. It's more laid back. It's easy to work with, and it makes the day-to-day practice a lot more enjoyable."
Muenster said there are some other, minor differences like the office decor, which he said is a bit nicer than other firms.
And, during March Madness, Muenster said he doesn't have to worry about coming in last in the brackets since the firm does not have an office pool.
