President of the Women’s Bar Association of Brooklyn Carrie Anne Cavallo

The weekly podcast “Power Women” features successful women such as Judge Judith Sheinlin of “Judge Judy,” Pat DiMango of “Hot Bench,” New York City Census Director Julie Menin, and many others.

This week’s podcast guest is Carrie Anne Cavallo, the president of the Women’s Bar Association of Brooklyn and Managing Partner of Schpoont & Cavallo.

Cavallo tells host Victoria Schneps that growing up, she moved around to several different locations, and how an important relationship with her grandmother inspired her work ethic.

“Through watching her, I learned that anything is possible,” she said.

She chose to became a lawyer because of a desire for challenge after getting into law school. Working in children’s services during law school gave her an interest in family law.

“I did like the social aspect of what I was doing and having the interaction with people and the ability to help people,” Cavallo said.

The “Power Women” podcast shares accomplished women’s secrets to success.
