Bodyfelt Mount Named One of Portland’s Most Diverse Small Law Firms

The Portland Business Journal has named Bodyfelt Mount to its list of Portland’s most diverse small law firms. This list includes firms with 20 or fewer attorneys. The percentage of women and minority attorneys as well as the percentage of women and minority partners were considered when calculating each firm’s Diversity Ranking.

Deanna Wray, Bodyfelt Mount’s managing partner, was interviewed about the experiences she’s had with building diversity, and what she believes is necessary to make the legal field enticing to women and minorities in particular: “You have to create a work environment that’s attractive in order to recruit women and minorities. In the beginning you have to work really hard at it, and then it gets a little bit easier, the more diverse you become, because then people see that you value diversity.”
