Winters welcomed her appointment.

“Tremain and I have worked together for many years, and, from the beginning, I have been in awe of her leadership strengths and her aptitude as a lawyer in the arena of family law,” she said. “Throughout her career, Tremain has continually earned the respect of her colleagues, adversaries and judges, and demonstrated her ability to meet the challenges ahead of her. She’s a superstar.”

Stanley said she is eager to take on the expanded role.

“I have been a part of Susan’s team for more than 20 years, and I am honored to continue collaborating with her in this new role to expand opportunities for the group,” she said.
