MILWAUKEE (June 12, 2014) – Godfrey & Kahn, S.C. is proud to announce that attorney shareholder Joan Klimpel is one of 27 female members of Wisconsin's legal community to be named a 2014 recipient of the Wisconsin Law Journal's elite Women in the Law award.

The Women in the Law award honors extraordinary women attorneys, judges and legal educators based on the following criteria:

  • Women attorneys who have achieved excellence in their respective fields and have influenced other women to pursue legal careers;

  • Those who have advanced opportunities for women within a practice area or segment of the profession; and

Klimpel and the other Women in the Law recipients will be honored tonight at a celebratory event at the Pfister Hotel.
