DWT Diversity

Patrick J. Curran Jr.


Hometown: Baldwin, Md.

Year you joined DWT: 2016

How you describe your work to a kid: I help people and companies come up with creative solutions to solve really tough problems. As a bonus, I get to go to court sometimes, which is a lot of fun.

Diversity hero: Dorothy Height. She was president of the National Council for Negro Women and worked tirelessly to advocate for racial and gender equality, demonstrating intersectionality before we had a term to describe that work. She was one of the most important leaders of the civil rights movement despite receiving a fraction of the favorable press coverage of her male colleagues.

Why you serve on the diversity committee: To be quite honest, the legal profession has been dominated by people that look like me for way too long. I want to work for a firm that is truly representative of the communities it serves.

Personal goal in five years: Will the Georgetown Hoyas to an NCAA tournament championship.
