Today, we’re setting up Molly Armstrong, a social justice lawyer who focuses on child welfare issues. Molly has received the prestigious Kathryn A. McDonald Award in Service to Family Court from the New York City Bar and was a Root-Tilden Scholar at NYU School of Law.
She enjoys relaxing with a long walk, a good book, and a delicious meal—but you probably won’t catch her watching reality TV, which she thinks is “cringey.” Molly recently read and loved Michael Lewis’s The Premonition and All the Devils are Here by Louise Penny. Her favorite season is fall, and if tattoos only lasted one year, she would spring for a tattoo of Our Lady of Guadalupe.
Who will find the best relaxing reads for a lawyer with a demanding schedule? Stay tuned to find out!
