Today’s spotlight: Norma Izzo

Title: Chair of the firm’s Family Law and Domestic Relations practice, Jennings, Strouss & Salmon

Background: Izzo is chair of the firm’s Family Law and Domestic Relations practice. She concentrates her practice in the area of family law and domestic relations matters, including complex litigation and asset division, business dissolution, collaborative divorce, mediation, arbitration, parent coordination, child custody and child support, and spousal maintenance. She serves on the Board of Directors for the Maricopa County Bar Association.

Essence of leadership: “Leaders must be positive. As a family law attorney, I often see people at their worst. My goal is to help them devote energy to the positives so they can move forward rather than focus on the negatives, which do not produce results. I also utilize positive behaviors to motivate my team, and mentor them on channeling positivity in their practices as well. We get better results when we focus on the positives to resolve an issue.”
