Some examples of our leadership
Divorce and Family Law partner Linda Ravdin is a member of the Board of Trustees of the Bethesda-based Round House Theatre. Round House is a critically acclaimed performing arts institution that has been a valuable member of our community for over 35 seasons. Its mission includes the production of classic and contemporary works for the stage as well as the development of community-based education programs. Pasternak & Fidis, PC is proud to have sponsored seven productions since 2010 including the world premiere of Charming Billy, a play adapted from the prize-winning novel by Bethesda author Alice McDermott, and the homage to James Beard, I Love to Eat. In the winter of 2016, the firm sponsored the area premiere of Suzan-Lori Parks’ Father Comes Home from the Wars (Parts 1, 2 & 3), a Greek-inspired tragedy examining the mess of war and the true cost of freedom. We are also pleased to sponsor the production of Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley.
Managing Partner Stephanie Perry, a partner in our Estate Planning and Administration Group, serves on the Board of Trustees of the Washington School for Girls. The privately financed Catholic school provides a caring and safe environment for young girls in 3rd through 8th grades in Southeast DC who are at risk of leaving school prematurely.
Partner Anne Coventry volunteers with her daughter’s troop and a local Girl Scouts Service Unit, through the Girl Scouts Council of the Nation’s Capital. Girl Scouts is the preeminent leadership development organization for girls, offering every girl a chance to practice a lifetime of leadership, success, and adventure; it builds girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place. Anne is a member of Montgomery Women, a non-partisan organization devoted to launching women leaders, encouraging women to break through glass ceilings, and advancing women to positions of influence in the political arena as well as in the business, nonprofit, educational, civic, and governmental sectors. Anne also participates with a number of social justice organizations and spends a lot of time writing to her elected legislators, in an effort to (in the words of her daughter, when she was 6 years old) “make the world fair.”
