Not Your Traditional Law Firm

SRD Legal Group is not your mother's law firm, and it’s certainly not your dad’s. We are an entirely female-owned, entrepreneurially-focused, legal services firm. As such, we are a viable alternative for companies of all sizes committed to working with women and minority owned, entrepreneurial businesses.

Smart Attorneys, Sophisticated Law

Our lawyers are smart and well-credentialed attorneys who are looking to work on a more flexible basis while still practicing relevant, useful, even sophisticated, law. We provide expert, sustainable legal solutions for Fortune 500 corporations, start-up companies and everyone in-between.

We’re Virtual

We are a proven alliance of lawyers who are skilled at leveraging the latest technology to create a balanced work/life culture, and to deliver exceptional work that is high quality, affordable and efficiently completed. We believe that our innovative model is helping to change for the better the way legal business gets done.





We are owned and operated by women,
active in the pursuit of equality.


We are smart, forward thinking and creative.


Our culture is one of mutual respect.
