Today’s spotlight: Barbara U. Rodriguez-Pashkowski

Title: Chair of the real estate practice group, Gust Rosenfeld

Background: Rodriguez-Pashkowski works with private companies and federal, state, and local governmental entities on a broad range of environmental issues related to real estate development, re-development, environmental due diligence and regulatory compliance.

Source of pride: “Mentoring diverse students who are considering a legal career. It is rewarding to support and encourage pursuit of their dreams, helping them achieve those dreams, and share my perspective as a minority. In doing so, the legal community is further enriched with up and coming diverse talent.”

Surprising fact: “I quit my first legal job after one year and went backpacking through Europe for three months.”
