FORT MYERS, Fla. - April 29, 2014 - PRLog -- Barbara Dell, Executive Director of Dress for Success SW Florida, is proud to announce “Law Suits” a sponsorship program that provides the legal community with an opportunity to transform disadvantage women to empowered professionals, excelling in both their careers and personal lives.

Dress for Success solves the catch-22 that confronts disadvantage women trying to enter the workforce: without a job how can you afford a suit?  Without a suit, how can you get a job? A law firm’s Law Suit Sponsorship provides one or more women with a complete suit and accessories, which include shoes, handbag or briefcase, jewelry and a scarf. The Civil Suit Sponsorship provides women with a complete wardrobe of up to fifteen pieces of clothing plus accessories to wear on the job.   Different levels of sponsorships and information on clothing drives are available.  Call Mary McDonough, Business Development Manager at 239-689-4992 or email Mary@dfsswflorida.org.

“I was an unemployed paralegal student without and income and needed to support my family. Thanks to the support of Dress for Success, I had the confidence to succeed, landed a job and went on to law school, ” states Trish Ryan, Esq. graduate of Dress for Success. “In 2013, I passed the Florida Bar exam and recently open my own law firm.”
