SPOTLIGHT: Jamie Dokovna, Business Litigation & Employment Law

In celebration of Women’s History Month, Becker showcases the inspiration, philosophies, and expertise of the women attorneys and lobbyists who help elevate our firm and client service.

Jamie also counsels clients on a wide range of employment and compliance issues.

What woman inspires you and why?

Ruth Bader Ginsburg. I think it’s obvious – she’s a badass!

If you could have dinner with anyone alive or dead, who would it be and why?

Kim Kardashian. She intrigues me – with everything she has, she still wants to be a lawyer to fight for others and make impacting change.

What advice (professional or personal) would you give your younger self?

Don’t let others define you.

What led you to the practice of law and/or to your specific area of law?

I wanted to be a lawyer because I wanted to be like my dad who was an attorney. He loved the practice of law. I wanted to do something that mattered – where I could make a difference and help others.

What has living through a global pandemic taught you?

Find the good even in the bad.
