The landscape of tax controversies and transaction is complex. Michelle Hervey, a Partner at BakerHostetler, works hard navigating it all for her clients and colleagues. Her colleague describes her as a leader and trusted adviser; her family describes her as “smart, fun and cool.” She focuses more on her analytical skills. These skills, combined with her ability to successfully communicate answers to complicated tax questions, make her the perfect mentor to help younger lawyers find and utilize their own strengths.
The best advice she’s received is “value yourself” – it’s the best way to demonstrate your value to others. Michelle appreciates this about YWCA Greater Cleveland – women, and especially women of color, are supported to in finding their value.
